Brixton Community Base needs your help to secure funding to employ a marketing and social media worker to support and promote our community initiatives and projects. We have applied to the Aviva Community Fund and are asking our friends and supporters to vote for us to ensure we can continue to work with some of the most disadvantage people in Brixton.
The deadline for voting is 21 November. You receive 10 votes and can choose which projects you wish to support however we would love it if you could give BCB all 10! We need to secure at least 1,000 votes to advance to the next stage.
You will have to register for an account and log in but this is swift and easy. Thank you so much for your support.
On Tuesday 10 October we were visited by the runners from GoodGym Lambeth, https://www.goodgym.org/areas/lambeth. They are committed to running and stopping off to support local people and organisations. We had 40 runners popping into the building and painting our Lower Hall. They worked extremely hard and fast and when one team had completed a wall, off they trotted for a swift run around the block. Thanks so much to GoodGym and especially Katie for supporting us.
From March to May 2017 Sixteenfeet Productions delivered a series of creative writing workshops as part of the ‘Lambeth Vintage Voices’ project. The sessions were fun, challenging and explored participants’ expe- riences of living, working and bringing up families in Brixton over decades.
‘Lovers’ Telephone’ presents some of the writings which have been recorded and are presented in Brixton Community Base as part of the 2017 Brixton Design Trail event. Visitors are encouraged to engage by listen- ing and sharing personal histories of Brixton.
This event has been designed by Brixton Community Base and Variant Of ce:
Brixton Community Base is an arts-orientated community centre providing a base for local groups, which hires space for rehearsals, workshops, evening classes, and meetings. It is an important historical community resource that provides a friendly open collaborative space that brings people together to share learning and experience new activities and make friends.
Variant Of ce is a Brixton based architecture practice that brings together many years of experience in ar- chitecture, design, planning and construction. The ethos of Variant Of ce is rooted in design research, us- er-centricity and a commitment to exploring the ability of space to transform lives and experiences through the careful engagement with both the client’s requirements and sensitivity to the site.
We will be running another series of creative writing and oral history workshops during Winter 2017/Spring 2018. If you would like to share your experiences of living in Brixton, learn new writing skills and make friends please contact Jane at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
