Common Ground is a coalition of three different community spaces based in Bethnal Green: The Common House, Bethnal Green Nature Reserve (run by Phytology), and Keddleston Walk Community Centre. We are hoping with this one day event to bring together and unite different community groups, activists and individuals in the area so that we can learn about each other, share, have fun and build a stronger and more united local community.
Our purpose is:
(i) to bring what happens inside community spaces outside, into the street,
(ii) to make connections between projects and groups that use local community spaces, strengthen networks and skills and contribute to community wellbeing;
(iii) to celebrate the range of activities that take place locally.
All the work going into running this event is voluntary, and the event will be free to attend, with free food and drink, in order to make it as inclusive as possible.
We need to raise £218.00 to pay the local authority in order to run the event. This includes a £21 temporary events notice, and £197 to advertise the road closure.
