" Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom." - Aristotle In collaboration with Soulhub, we've created a new kind of event, and we'd love you to join us.It's true. The ability of connecting with others starts from the connection we make with ourselves. We are bringing our community together for an evening of self discovery. Carmen Rendell, and her incredible team of experts from Soulhub will be our guides for the night, as we venture deeper to explore the mysteries of the unconscious. From understanding the meaning behind illness, to identifying the things we may be attracting in our lives. They will share their experience and observations of how we all create the patterns and behaviours we’re often blind to.  We will be sharing honest stories of challenges and experiences we have faced, balanced with advice, insights and ideas into our own personal turning points and successes.Let's join the Dots to be the best version of ourselves!Expect an immersive evening, of full blown alchemy, with soulful vibes. All in the spirit of Hub Dot.Join us. An evening of self discovery awaits. Ciao, Simona and everyone from Hub Dot

Join us as we explore Camden Town - which is famed for its markets, a warren of fashion and curiosities by the Regent's Canal.   As you head up Camden High Street, your tutor will guide you through and highlight the many areas of street art and 'funky' architecture which will provide vibrant images for you.  You will also visit a very unusual building which changes colour depending on the angle you look at it from - great for abstract shots. You will then head in to Camden Lock for views of the canal, canal boats and architecture before more market photography in the vibrant and colourful markets in that area. Your Photography Tutor will be available to help and advise you throughout the walk. We recommend you bring a DSLR camera with a small selection of lenses on our photo walks. A wideangle and telephoto lens will always be useful as would a standard zoom or standard lens. A Compact camera would be equally useful if you don't have an interchangeable lens camera. We don't recommend you bring a tripod but do please bring your mobile phone if you have one. Walks are designed to be on mainly level ground and there are plenty of opportunities en-route for comfort breaks. Should you get separated from the group the walk leader's mobile number is provided and they will re-attach you! The walk leader will take images as the walk progresses and show these to you to give you ideas on the type of images you may wish to take. Please note that you will receive an email from us a day or two before the event with full meeting point instructions and suggestions on what to bring with you.
