Remade in Brixton
Agenda 26 May 2009 (7pm)
Trinity Arms, 45 Trinity Gardens, London, SW9 8DR
Local events over the summer where we could have a stall include:
- Lambeth Green Communities Open Evening (Town Hall, 8 June)
- Windmill Gardens Festival (28 June)
- Lambeth Country Show (18-19 July)
- Brixton Splash (August)
- Urban Green Fair (20 September)
How can we use these events to engage the community with waste issues? e.g. exhibition of reused / recycled products, hands-on “remaking” activities, information + visuals… Could you help bring content together or man the stall?
Remade in Brixton has the opportunity to be part of a new “Sustainability Market” on a Sunday in October in Electric Avenue! If successful it could become a regular event. What could we (and the local reuse and refashioning businesses / groups we know) do there? e.g.
- Reused + refashioned products
- Repair + revamp services
- Bring-and-buy / swap stalls
- Wants + offers board, Freecycle sign-up
- Make-it-yourself stalls â€“ learn new skills
- Exhibition / information stalls
During Young Enterprise Week (November) groups of young people will be invited to have a stall on the market for a day. Lambeth is keen for this to have a green element. Could Remade in Brixton be involved in some way e.g. going into a school to brainstorm recycled / refashioned products?
Transition Town Brixton’s Hub group (made up of all sub-group co-ordinators) has developed a shared set of strategic goals for Engagement, Development and Housekeeping. This is an opportunity for Remade in Brixton to figure out how our current projects and longer-term visions fit in with the activities of TTB as a whole. View the strategic goals here + how other groups are responding.
