We Make Camden

Thursday 4th of April 2019

Thursday 4th April.

The Greenwood centre, 37 Greenwood Place, NW5 1LB

14:00 - 20:00

You are invited to join us to celebrate the diversity and strength of the communities in Camden. The event will bring together residents, community groups, businesses, schools and staff to discuss how we can work together to unite our neighbourhoods in the week we're due to leave the EU.

The conference will celebrate the strength of the Camden community and explore how we can tackle potential issues head on and deliver a clear message that promotes Camden as a place that embeds social integration.

We will provide a platform to develop new ideas and actions to make sure Camden continues to offer refuge for everyone during challenging times. A series of workshops and performances will highlight the common themes that bind us together; showcasing and celebrating our diverse communities.

Together, we aim to create a whole new raft of initiatives to instil a sense of belonging and a united Camden. We will bring resources, we just need your energy and ideas!

  • Amies Freedom Choir: Pan Intercultural Arts presents young women from diverse and difficult backgrounds performing songs from each others' cultures and languages
