Our lovely friends at Cause2Create are back for the second year running with their Festival of Creativity for Good: art, design, talks, creative workshops, film, photography, music and performance on Saturday the 18th of November!
The festival spreads across multiple venues in the famously creative Hackney Wick and Fish Island bringing together creatives, agencies, brands, non-profits and the public to celebrate some of the amazing ways that creativity has been used as a force for good.
This year’s theme, ‘CreateChange’, shines a spotlight on some of the issues effecting society today – from homelessness to mental health, the refugee crisis to communities polarised by political events – and explores how creative action, and grassroots movements are driving social change.
Co-founder Briony Pete comments ‘Whether you want to hear from our gamechangers in the Speaker Forum who have seen a social challenge and put in place a creative solution, see award winning art and design in our Impact Gallery, watch film shorts that create connections and change perceptions, or just join us for a boogie at #CreateChange Live in the evening – we’d love to see you there”.
Briony and business partner Mark Bennett launched Cause2Create 12 months ago, and since then have been connecting creatives with great causes, running workshops and helping people to #CreateChange.
Cause2Create helps people to use their skills for good. A community of creative talent who give their time to impact social change by supporting non-profits (charities, social start-ups and community and volunteer groups) who do amazing work - locally and globally - but cannot afford or easily access creative resources.
This years #CreateChange festival includes Puck Collective and Trop Crew in the Impact Gallery, Future Shorts (from the brains behind Secret Cinema) in the Pop-Up Cinema and The Paper Project with an interactive performance exploring of migrants on the move.
