This is a page to share details about other organisations that share a common geography, space and/or philosophy to 57 North. Sort of, people like us.

Probably best if they are non-profit orgs, but not sure.

A list of events in Aberdeen can be found at .

Although, generally these are groups we're keen on, in some way or other, inclusion on this list does not count as endorsement of any kind.
