Bags of Love

As part of a wider project, involving local children and charities to explore, create and connect within the community, the ‘Bags of Love’ workshops at Telegraph Hill Centre will facilitate the encounter of Syrian refugee children with local children. During the workshops, the children will explore common ground and will be guided into the process of creative making by decorating picture frames where to treasure an image of a loved memory or person. After meeting the refugee children and their families at the centre of the Lewisham Scheme for Syrian Refugee Families, to ask how the community could help, their feedback was that the best ‘gift’ was time spent together, to make friends and share. 

Please arrive on time. If children wish to attend more than one session, they’re welcome!

Plastic & Stuff Symposium – downsizing our environmental footprint

The PLASTIC & STUFF SYMPOSIUM will be an open facilitated discussion and a chance for us to consider what we can do to reduce waste and pollution. This could be in our own domestic sphere helping to recycle or use foods and other consumer items in a way that reduces the effect on the environment. Maybe we can work together to support shops delivery people and other external agents who are making the pledge to cut waste? Or do we need to take action against those who put profit before the environment. What is reasonable? What is necessary? Above all what can we realistically do? Bring your concerns and ideas to share and develop and let’s not get too po-faced about it. It’s a Saturday night after all. Bring your jokes, irony, and stories.
