Event description

Description

Whether you’ve been inspired to start something new after holding a Big Lunch, or your project has been running for years, funding will always be a key part of making your ideas become reality.

Come and join the rest of the Eden Project Communities network to share skills and experiences, ask questions and find answers how to make the most of the current funding world and take your project or idea to the next level.

You can also meet other community networks and organisations, learning more about their skills and resources, including Big Lottery Fund, Project Dirt, Community Organisers, Local Trust and many more.

Choose what works for you: workshops, discussions, skill sharing and speed networking will cover:

  • Where and how to get it – inc. grants, crowdfunding, community business

  • How to use it – inc. community assets, demonstrating impact

  • How to do without it – inc. the sharing economy, in-kind support

This event is totally free, including food and (non-alcoholic) drink, and we can offer travel bursaries on a first-come, first-served basis. Spaces are limited so please sign up soon!

As part of our network - whether you have been to one of our events before, or hosted a Big Lunch - you are also welcome to stay on until Sunday to continue to connect and share inspiration and ideas with other members from the Eden Project Communities network over some lovely dinner & networking time. Sunday will be all about looking ahead to 2018 and where next for us and you.

Sunday is also free to attend, however places for overnight accommodation are limited so please do let us know asap if you require accommodation. Accommodation will be provided in same gender dorms at a local Birmingham hostel.
