Somers Town Sparks
Wed 26 October 2016, 18:30 – 20:30 BST
Somers Town Sparks brings together local people and facilitates idea development with young people who are homeless or at risk, to create community initiatives.
Join us for an evening of talks, design thinking and collaboration to support young people. Community initiatives will be put forward by young people from New Horizon. You will then have the opportunity to develop these ideas before voting on the idea you would like to fund. We recommend a donation of £5 and all proceeds will go to the initiative you vote for.
A little history
The Interchange is a collaborative studio located inside a housing estate in Somers Town. The organisations that occupy this space have an active interest in equality and social justice, and bring approaches that are rooted in design, problem-solving, participation and reflexive practice.
The opportunity to develop community projects in Somers Town has been brought together by Origin Housing Association to bring life back into the space and facilitate emergent opportunities in the local community. New Horizon is a local day centre working with young people who are vulnerable, homeless or at risk helping them to create positive futures.
