Envato Local Communities are all about creating valuable and accessible ways of interacting, collaborating, learning and sharing with other region-based authors. Here, we look to celebrate the diversity and unique nature of our author community by coming together and sharing ideas through events, teams and online groups.
We know that each community comes together for different reasons – some connect with authors who live in the same region, others come from the same field/industry and some come together for learning. So, this is an opportunity to connect them all.
With so much of our work being online, it’s all about investing in your local community of authors, while being a part of a big, wide world of authors. We believe that by focusing on both local and global perspectives, there are more ways to learn, engage and grow as authors. Envato Local Communities are places to genuinely connect with more people closer to where you are, in more ways than just occasional conversations here and there.
We want to help foster information-sharing and find opportunities in your local language and region that can help you grow. We’re better when we’re together.
What is an Envato Local Leader and Teams?
Local Communities are run by authors for authors. This means that each local community has a dedicated team leader or two (that's you!) and a local team of 3-5 authors, who help to support these community activities. Their role is to help you build the experience for authors through local events and online activities. You can start by reaching out to your author peers in your local region to see who would be interested in joining the team, or reach out via online networks and groups on facebook or the forums.
At Envato HQ, we will work closely with you, our Envato Local Leaders to check-in on the health of local communities and help to gather feedback from authors to pass to the business. This close relationship means a great deal to us and we will work with you to ensure that your teams, events and communities are the best they can be.
However, your communities can be completely self-organised and designed to be flexible for the preferences for the leader and their local teams. This means that, depending on the needs of the community, you can make it as personalised as you like.
