People for Play
A campaigning workshop and picnic
WHERE: Coram’s Fields, 93 Guilford St, London WC1N 1DN
WHEN: 10.00am Saturday 9 September
This free event will bring together seasoned campaigners for play with those just starting out on their journey to share tips, successes and challenges; and develop skills and knowledge to help them campaign with confidence.
Invited speakers include Friends of Market Place Playground, Finchley; and campaigners from Ravensbourne Park, Catford. They will share inspiring stories of starting and growing grassroots play campaigns, influencing decision makers and sourcing funds for play.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided. Children are welcome – there will be playworkers on site running junk modelling, street games and other activities for the duration of the event.
All attendees will receive the pilot play campaign toolbox with ideas, case studies, tip sheets and other resources to help them become effective play campaigners.
