Each week we’ll endeavour to publish some details of the interesting things that members of DoES Liverpool have been up to over the past seven days. You can find out a bit more about them in our introductory post.
And remember, if you’re involved with DoES Liverpool at all, let us know what you get up to so we can include it here!

The Big Move
With our move to the Tapestry looming, we’re including a brief update on how things are going each week.
As you can see above, the fit-out works are in full flow. This week is likely to be all about the painting, so if you can wield a paintbrush and have some spare time then let us know. There’ll be people working there tomorrow (Tuesday) and Thursday and over the weekend.
We’ll also be launching our Crowdfunder campaign this week to help pay for all the work that needs doing and to make the new DoES Liverpool even more epic! Keep an eye out on social media and the Google Group to hear when it goes live, then dig deep and spread the message far and wide!
There are lots of things to do, both with the move and in preparation for the move. If you want to help out, check the DoES Move The Tapestry label on the Somebody Should issue list, or get in touch.
The DoES Liverpool to-do list is stored in the issues of our Somebody Should repository on github. Head over there if there’s something you’d like to report, or if you want to help out fixing things.
