The Knowledge Quarter would like to invite you to a unique networking event, where you can begin to make connections with a whole host of organisations across Camden and Islington.
The Community Champions project is a series of events designed to bring Knowledge Quarter (KQ) partners together with local charities and community groups, in order to encourage KQ partners to develop collaborative projects around the themes of youth, employability, environment, wellbeing and nexus.
This particular event will cover the built environment, accommodation, internal and external play spaces, parks and nature.
Local Community Organisations and Charities: We would like to invite local community organisations/charities with a focus on the environment or projects that relate to the enviroment to set up marketplace stalls at the event. This will require arriving at 14:00 to set up a your stall. Please note we will be limited to eight stalls maximum and will be selected through an expression of interest process. You are still more than welcome to attend the event without being selected to have a marketplace stall.
To apply for a marketplace stall: Please download and submit the expression of interest form which can be found here. The deadline is 5pm on the 22nd June 2018.
Knowledge Quarter Partners: We would like Knowledge Quarter partners to consider what skills and activities they can offer to our local organisations and charities, and bring along a clear idea of how best to engage. We will have a space for notices to be placed which festival organisers to view, ensuring that no conversation or opportunity is missed.
General notice: Whilst some of the organisations might be responsible for grant funding in different departments, this event is focusing on activities and skills that Knowledge Quarter partners can offer.
This is a free event however places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
