We are holding monthly 'meet up and learn' sessions, where we'll invite one person to speak about what they've been doing - and learning - during the lockdown, before opening it up to hear from everyone. Photo by Louis Hansel @shotsoflouis on Unsplash
Join us in our July edition of Learning in Lockdown where we will be discussion where the neighbourhood goes from here.
As the 'new normal' settles in and things open up, what is your experience of Walworth now? And what are your hopes for the future?
For our June session we will be exploring the impact of the Covid-19 crisis on young people.
This time we'll be hearing from Ella Frampton, Dance Project Lead, and James Jenkins, Music Project Lead, about how they've been continuing their work to offer music and dance tuition online.
What have they and their participants learned during this period and how might the arts help young people during challenging times?
We're also really interested in your own experience: how have you been supporting the young people in your life during this period? How might music/art/dance help people cope with uncertainty and worry?"
For this session we'll be hearing from Ali Kaviani, Pembroke House Director of Projects and coordinator of the Food Distribution Hub which was set up in the first couple of weeks following the lockdown. The Hub is now regularly distributing food to 1,500 people per week, a total of 25 tonnes of food and 10,000 km on bikes so far.
Join us to hear how the Hub got set up, how you can be involved and what Ali has learned in the process.
