About this event

Creative Storytelling - Branding Masterclass

Join this session to find out more!

YOUR community, YOUR ideas, YOUR change

Join creative strategist Emma Hargreaves for this practical workshop on how to uncover and tell your best story. It’s vitally important that we arm our local communities with the tools and expertise to help them develop their own socially conscious projects. The Foundation for Future London Capacity Building Programme aims to provide a platform for knowledge sharing and offer networking and partnership opportunities. The programme is designed with an inclusive approach, representing participants' feedback. The programme will champion inclusivity and wellbeing throughout.

About the session:

This workshop will take you through how great storytelling can be used as an important part of your brand, with tips and tricks on how to structure and include your ‘brand story’ in pitches. Great stories are powerful - they inspire people to buy into you and your ideas. This interactive session will help you find and tell your best story. First, you’ll learn how to uncover your very best story. Then, the art of storytelling - from structuring a pitch to making it memorable - all so you can get the response you want.

About the Westfield East Bank Creative Futures Fund:

In 2020, Foundation for Future London, through funding from Westfield Stratford City, created the Westfield East Bank Creative Futures Fund - an ambitious five-year programme that aims to invest £10 million into the local communities of Newham, Tower Hamlets, Hackney and Waltham Forest. The Fund aims to support local organisations and individuals to create new jobs, learning, training, and educational programmes through the means of arts, culture, innovation, public realm and creative placemaking. The Fund aims to transform and catalyse the lives and careers of people across east London by putting funding, resources and support straight into local people’s hands.

Year 2 of the Westfield East Bank Creative Futures Fund has now opened. With the generous donation from Westfield Stratford City, Year 2 of the fund will continue to provide new jobs, learning, training and educational programmes through the means of arts, culture, innovation, public realm and creative placemaking

This year we are hosting, in partnership with Lisa Stepanovic, a series of capacity building events, starting with pre-application workshops, as part of a 12-month Capacity Building Programme.
