Active Citizens aims to develop partnerships between local groups connected to Brixton Reuse Centre (BRC) â€“ a new community project that will transform a disused garage block on Paulet Road into a centre for enterprise, training and creative projects based on reuse of waste materials.Â Participants from projects outside BRC, but connected by location or theme, are very welcome.
The Active Citizens programme has space for 20-30 participants. You must be able to attend all 4 workshops and booking is essential. We are seeking a good balance of participants from different local projects, so you will be asked to fill in a short application form:Â Active Citizens application questions.
To submit your application, or if you have questions about the programme, please contact Hannah:Â firstname.lastname@example.org /Â 07919 038778
