It’s time we create a better London, one that’s more equal, more connected and where everyone can take part. Today, partners are announcing a festival that will explore our individual and collective visions and plans for strong communities in London.
We are inviting everyone to take part in the festival. Can you host an event, a conversation, an activity or a celebration that explores what makes strong communities in London?
We’ll be sharing a helpful toolkit on the 17th of May, holding information sessions and will open applications for small grants to informal groups or organisations with a turnover of less than £100k to host activity during the festival.
Register for an information session below or tell us about your ideas for the festival.
