~ AMBIGO BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER TO ACHIEVE THEIR AMBITIONS ~

Think of an ambition you have. Something you'd really like to do, or be, or have...Got one...?

Now, have you been dreaming about this mostly alone? Then how would it feel if you experienced a community coming around to support this ambition so they could help you get closer to it? Come and find out!


~ WHAT HAPPENS AT AN AMBITION IGNITION EVENT? ~

Come along and share your ambition with friendly, supportive people from across the Brighton area in a positive, safe and chilled environment. We write our ambitions down on a piece of paper and also what we need help with. We stick them on the wall.

We then walk around, looking at each other’s ambitions. When we feel there’s some info, advice, an idea or a contact we can offer that might help that person, we jot it down on a post-it note and stick it to their ambition.

Sharing, listening and supporting. Simple!


~ WHAT COULD I GET OUT OF IT? ~

• Practical next steps...useful info, advice, ideas and contacts that could help you progress towards your ambition

• Energy and inspiration...thanks to the meaningful connections you've made, as well as the diverse ideas and ambitions of the people around you. 

• A warm glow...at the satisfaction of being able to use your knowledge to help others (and you'll be surprised how much you can!)

• Confidence...in the viability of your idea

• Feeling of support...as people show their will to help you achieve

• A sense of belonging...you won't feel alone with your idea. Also, some strong friendships have been born at these events so it's a great place to meet some wonderful new people.

• A greater sense of purpose...a clearer idea of how you can have the impact you want to have

Watch this short video and you'll see what actually happens:

----FAQ----

~ WHAT KIND OF AMBITIONS ARE WE TALKING ABOUT? ~

It can be ANYTHING. Anything at all that leads you to greater personal fulfilment. Ambigo is full of people with ambitions like:

• Find out how to grow food in Calais’s refugee camp

• Start a career in events management

• Be more courageous

• Start my own Indian massage business

• Release an album
 

~ THIS IS AMAZING, BUT I DON'T HAVE TIME TO GET INVOLVED IN OTHER PEOPLE'S PROJECTS ~

Don't worry. There is no expectation of you to make any commitment to anybody. The support you give to someone doesn't have to be anything beyond a post-it note with a useful bit of info on it and maybe a quick chat on the day. That alone often proves very valuable to that person.
 

~ WILL THERE BE PEOPLE TRYING TO SELL ME THINGS? ~

No way! Ambigo events are not for people to come along and promote their services. It's for the community to come together to support each other's ambitions.


~ I DON'T HAVE AN AMBITION IN MIND, BUT WOULD LIKE TO HELP OTHERS ~

Brilliant! Come along! Your positive energy and knowledge could have a really positive impact.
 

~ SOUNDS GREAT, BUT MAYBE I'M TOO OLD/YOUNG/DIFFERENT ~

These events are open to EVERYONE. We passionately tell you that we embrace diversity. And, if you're differently-abled, please let us know how we might adapt to make the event accessible to you.
 

~ HOW DO YOU SAY AMBIGO AND WHAT DOES IT MEAN? ~

AM-be-go. It's where our AMBItions GO places! Ambi+go = Ambigo :-)
 

~ WHAT DO PEOPLE SAY ABOUT IT? ~

We can't wait for this! It runs on a Pay What You Can basis (so if you can't pay, please don't!). And, with a maximum attendance of 35, it'll be first come, first served on the night so don't be late!
