re:connect and re:create

Inspired networking

As part of this weekend's pioneering Festival of Collective Action, the re:generation project ( proudly invites you to an innovative networking event with a twist, designed to spark collaborations.

We'll be setting the tone by bringing together an exciting mix of people, organisations and special guest speakers.

Then it's to the networking, with the twist… you'll be able to make your matches in advance. Guests are invited to share with the guest list what they need and what they can offer BEFORE the event itself… allowing them to talk to the right people on the day, and to use their local knowledge to propose suitable matches on behalf of others.

To get in the community spirit, we're also encouraging everyone to bring some food to share, although FoodCycle will be there to ensure there's a feast for all.

For more information and to make the best connections, please fill in this matchmaking form:

10am: Doors open - includes new gallery exhibition on 2nd floor

10.45: Introduction from re:connect team

11.00: re:create discussion

11.45: 'Changing our World the Social Enterprise Way' - Michael Norton OBE

12-2pm: re:connect matchmaking, networking and bring/share lunch

All will be welcome to continue the festivities with live music and spoken word, the Great Hackney Cake off, the re:imagine forum, give/take fair, art exhibition and more…

We look forward to seeing you there!
