Bringing OurSpace to summer events in London and Frome, Somerset
We had an amazing time recently, spreading the word about our project.
First, we joined the Activate! team on the 10th July and run a workshop on inclusive spaces that can harness community action. Activate! The Best Leaders create Leaders was an empowering day organized by BUD Leaders, that brought experienced and emerging leaders together to connect and share their passions. It was incredible to see OurLeaders co-facilitating our session! So proud of them! The feedback from the participants was amazing too, as they were asking if it’s possible to join more OurSpace sessions and continue the conversation about building inclusive spaces.
And last week, we brought OurSpace to Frome, Somerset and run an opening ceremony of Stir to Action Festival. We spent three days participating in inspiring conversations, participatory theatre, interactive workshops and many more. It was great to see so many people interested in our project and our work. Look forward to the next Festival!
On Sunday 19th July, we got involved in Lambeth Country Show in Brockwell Park, Brixton. At our stall, we shared what OurSpace is about and OurLeaders talked about their centres. We took this opportunity to explore, what are the emerging projects in the communities in Lambeth.
