The Sage Gateshead will host the second North East Social Enterprise Festival on October 29th. An inspirational event needs a setting to match. Listed as one of the ten best buildings in England of the last hundred years by the Rough Guide and occupying one of the most dramatic urban sites in Europe, the spectacular open public spaces and glazed front of Sage Gateshead offer superb sweeping views across the river Tyne. We believe that the activities, scope of services and breadth of product inside this amazing building will distract the attendees from the fabulous views.
Although the majority of Social Entrepreneurs operate and trade for the benefit of communities in the North East (so when they profit, our society profits) there are many internationally known brands operating for global good and we look forward to welcoming them to the North East.
The Festival will have numerous displays of the benefits of collaborative efforts and a fantastic array of creative ways to combat social problems. Puppets, robots, stilt walkers, drummers, artists, IT geeks, bakers and business skills will all be displayed.
The Festival provides a platform for social entrepreneurs to demonstrate the tools they use to fulfil their desires to make their community better.
