Lewisham Council are looking for a wide range of different activities and projects but are particularly interested in:
  • Activities to safely engage Young People aged 11-25 that provide a space for them to connect to their peers, reflect on their experience of lockdown and voice their hopes for the future.
  • Activities that connect with isolated vulnerable adults.
  • Projects that celebrate Lewisham’s diversity
  • Projects that explore how we can capitalise on our recent experiences in taking action on climate change.
Activities need to provide opportunity for community members to take part and can be from any art form; poetry or spoken word workshops, dance, creative writing, interactive comedy, group crafting projects, photography and video making, storytelling, customising clothing.
