I am from Lancaster Cohousing (U.K.) but also my former employer , the Scottish Council of Jewish Communities, has a £50k two year funded project to develop good practice in hybrid events . We’re thinking of a professional community film person to train community organisations in streaming skills, a tech person in the zoom meeting working with the communal organisations and participants to make sure that there are proper links between the two spaces .... a screen in the room to bring the online participants into the ‘real’ space - but it’s work in progress and we’re just at the beginning at the moment ....
