Event description

Description

150 Big Local areas invited to gather for 2 days of activity, inspiration and fun

Big Local Connects is the first gathering of all Big Local areas at a single event. From Hastings to Hartlepool, people are travelling to share their experiences of Big Local, learn from other areas and get inspired by the huge range of resident-led projects transforming communities across the country.

You can discover
We're pulling together a packed line-up of sessions, including how to:

  • give a voice to young people in your area
  • incorporate as an organisation
  • take back your streets for play
  • harness arts and creativity
  • engage with your wider community

This is just some of what we've got planned, so register now to keep in the loop with speakers and sessions as we announce them. There will also be plenty of time to chat with other Big Local areas over tasty food and relaxed activities like crafts, a tour of our amazing venue and board games. Did we mention the cinema and goody bags - we have those too!

When
3:00- 9:00pm on Friday 29th June and 9:30am-4:00pm on Saturday
30th June

Where
Royal Institute of British Architects, 66 Portland Place, London, W1B 1AD

To make sure all the Big Local areas get a chance to come, we can welcome up to three people from each Big Local area in the first instance. We will be operating a waiting list for additional attendees.
