Introducing the Mayor's Crowdfund London Programme 2017 Hackney
Communities across London are coming together to imagine, fund and create local places that people love – from a community garden in the heart of the city, re-establishing a historic market or the creative use of forgotten spaces to ambitious plans to construct elevated parks and uncover forgotten lidos.
Now it’s your chance to play a part in transforming where you live. If you have an idea which will make your local area special, build on local character and bring people together then the Mayor of London could help you make it happen.
City Hall are looking for innovative ideas that benefit the whole neighbourhood and show community support through a vibrant crowdfunding campaign. The best could attract a pledge of up to £50,000 from the Mayor to help you hit your target and bring your idea to life.
Join us for this interactive workshop and you will:
- Find out what the Mayor is offering and what you need to do to get involved
- Learn from successful projects and access key advice / lessons to ensure your idea can succeed
- Get insight into the exciting journey you’ll begin and what you can expect from running a crowdfunding campaign and delivering a local project
Whether this is your first time creating a project or you're a seasoned community organiser, this event will tell you everything you need to know to join in and have the best chance of attracting a pledge from the Mayor.
