Taking part in practical everyday activities can lead to all sorts of benefits for people and the places they live.

We are inspiring and supporting local people to design and test practical projects, creatively connecting all sorts of resources. Together we are experimenting with different kinds of spaces and learning what is needed for projects to thrive. By growing a strongly connected network of opportunities we aim to amplify the scale of individual projects.

Check out our blog for updates on the things we are doing, making and learning:
