Common Treasury of Adaptable Ideas
All the tickets for April 25th have now gone, but you can go on a waiting list by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Join a day of inspiration and perspiration at the first showcase event of the Common Treasury of Adaptable Ideas
Feeling overwhelmed, paralysed, fearful about the future and looking for a way to take action? This is the event for you
We have booked some truly inspirational speakers to tell us about ideas that have proved successful elsewhere to help towns thrive.
You are welcome to just come and listen, but if you are hungry for new ideas and have the energy to work together to adapt them to the Hastings context, you can be part of the treasure. Small pots of money and mentoring are available to support the growth of new community businesses that emerge from this event.
Confirmed inspirers so far are:
Stella Duffy OBE, the creator of Fun Palaces http://funpalaces.co.uk/about/
Melissa Mean from Knowle West Media Centre, Bristol
Hazel Tilley from Granby 4 Streets Community Land Trust https://www.granby4streetsclt.co.uk
Alison Paule of Paxton Green Timebank http://www.wearetempo.org/impact2017/
Maff Potts of Camerados
These enthusiastic change-makers from other parts of the country will share their inspiring stories with local people who are already thinking how we become a happier, healthier and more sustainable town into the 2020s.
TIMETABLE FOR THE DAY
Morning Session (9 - 1) 'Inspiring Ideas from Elsewhere'.
Afternoon Session (2 - 4.45) 'Making it happen in Hastings'.
Taking it forward
Following each Common Treasury showcase event, a Taking-it-Forward period of three months will support the development of new ideas, with guidance and wisdom from the inspirers, a facilitator and a development fund of £5,000. Each group will have the opportunity to discuss what they need to develop the idea and then negotiate with the others how to allocate the fund.
At the showcase event we will be launching the Common Treasury digital platform for sharing and browsing ideas online. This will capture ideas for a local economy that works within planetary limits and make the links between people, place and planet.
The Common Treasury of Adaptable Ideas is a unique Hastings initiative hosted by Energise Sussex Coast & Jericho Road Solutions - generously supported by Power to Change.
