Over the evening of Fri 18th and daytime Sat 19th January, we're going to Changify Shoreditch together, with an exciting blend of local exploration, reporting and creative problem solving. Make it your mission possible!

The themes for Changify Shoreditch are: Environment, Living, Business, and Transport.

On Friday... you turn roving urban reporter. Explore past, present and future Shoreditch on a tour hosted by city guides Peter Berthoud and Alternative London. Snap, tweet and rate issues and inspirations you notice en route.

Followed by 3 lightning talks and Q&A with Tower Hamlets councillor Joshua Peck, Jack Skillen, Head of Projects (Streets) at Living Streets and Gustavo Montes de Oca of Hackney City Farm & The Golden Co.

On Saturday... decide what should be changifyed and how local busineses and brands could help. Team-up to hone your ideas, and pitch solutions using video or other storytelling methods.

Then get feedback on your project ideas from a panel including local Hackney councillor Jonathan Mc Shane, Kate Hartley, MD of Carrot Communications, Lorraine Lecky of Shoreditch Trust, and Catherine Greig, founder of make:good.

But how does the Changifying happen..?
The solutions become micro-projects, illustrated by your descriptions, photos, stories and videos.  Then the projects go forward to be posted and find backing on the upcoming Changify platform from the local community, brands and other supporters.

In Rockwell House Studio (Fri), the Tea Building (Sat) and around the streets of Shoreditch and Brick Lane, a historic and dynamic part of east London.

The event is open to anyone with a passion for making a difference. Come along, get creative and share your skills. What counts is curiosity and a desire to Changify the neighbourhood!
