Something I’ve been thinking about implementing internal to the company are “groups.” Not much unlike what we have here in the Product Maker’s community, but more niche (think: book club, nature club, etc.). 

As this is a “Remote Only” (or “Remote Focused”) group, I’m looking for some suggestions. So here goes:

If someone in your company started to form groups/clubs, what would be some of the topics you’d like those groups/clubs be centered around?

Also — 

What kind of cadence of meeting would you prefer, in general? Every week/biweekly/monthly/bimonthly?

I think photography would be a good topic for a group. For people that enjoy sharing beautiful pictures. The cadence could also be ad-hoc and async.

This is actually a pretty accessible one, too! I should have been able to think of it, considering I’m a fan of taking photos. (D’oh! :triumph:). Something like photography would allow for an ad-hoc/asynchronous state of sharing.

We started a film club during the first Covid lock down which has continued fortnightly. A group of us come together and discuss the film via zoom what we thought of the story line, whether the actors had good back stories etc. The session lasts about 30 minutes and then we all put forward ideas for the next film. We all then vote and then watch the chosen film. You get a very eclectic mix of films, we have watched films ranging from Escape from Pretoria, Love & Monsters, US and Cinderella.  The clubs favourite film so far has been Parasite.

@darren.smith -- Good idea! I think I’m going to try to start throwing around the idea of a book or film club. I think a lot of the photography stuff has been going into our #random channel, thus far. Which means that it’s not getting a lot of discussion but we have started to get some people to share content, at least.
