I’ve probably forgotten to mention it, but this Saturday 11 November is Make:Shift., Wolverhampton’s annual ideas festival.
It really is an event for everyone – if you’re passionate about Wolverhampton; if you’re excited by new ideas; if you have new ideas; if you enjoy networking then this is the event for you. Better still, it’s all free and that includes lunch and all your other refreshments throughout the day.
If you would like to ‘Change Wolverhampton with an Idea’, or would like to hear about other peoples’ ideas then please do come along on Saturday.
Anyone can pitch an idea as long as they are prepared to drive it forward themselves. Great ideas from previous Make:Shifts include the Wolves in Wolves project, The Free Organic Garden and Gatis Community Space, to name a few.
What’s new for 2018? We’ll be launching Wolverhampton’s fantastic new crowdfunding platform – Crowdfund Wolves. If you think you know about crowd funding you might think again when you see this one.
In a major coup, not only are the Eden Project going to be there, we also have fantastic local performer, Alex Vann, doing a performance with a difference. Plus we have the Crafty Gardener, the Wolverhampton Zero Waste Project, 100 Masters and Maker:Centric, all doing some practical afternoon workshops.
Following on from our highly successful Make:Inspiration sessions, we’re going to have a room dedicated to TED and TEDx talks, followed by intriguing discussions and there will be an opportunity to have a go at some wellbeing exercises or find out more about Action for Happiness as part of our all new Make:Space sessions.
As always there will be the chance to pitch your idea, or find out about other peoples’.
The tickets are free. We’re even throwing in a free lunch and refreshments throughout the day.
The event is on Saturday 11 November. It starts at 10:00 a.m. and finishes at 4:00 and is at the Bob Jones Community Hub, Bromley Street, Blakenhall, Wolverhampton.
Book your free ticket today and don’t forget our amazing Make:Inspiration session at Wildbytes Café on Thursday 9th November 12:00 for 12:30 where once again we will enjoy a fab TED or TEDx video over a coffee and, very possibly, a piece of cake.
