cropped-webheader2.jpgOn the weekend of Feb 6th and 7th, The Hive Dalston will open it’s 4 floors of social space to host Re:GENERATION: a ground-breaking festival showcasing what can happen when a collective of people and organisations collaborate to create something for the community. This is your opportunity to participate.

What’s happening?

Hackney Roots and ReSpace Projects have teamed up to involve an exciting mix of personalities and capabilities in designing and delivering an event program that brings the community to life.

Initial planning has taken place in collaboration with Forest Recycling Project, GoodGym, and Locality,  with planned activities ranging from live performances and skill-sharing workshops to entertain and inspire the general public; to renovating the gallery and building a recording studio to give them a lasting voice.

How will it work?

The event is only a month away, but has been designed to show that many hands can make light work creating something special.

We’re proposing 10 themes of activity over the weekend, each to be arranged by a team of volunteers and organisations, and each to include a ReSpace Projects representative to ensure they run smoothly.

All who register interest will be placed into a recommended team and invited to join a special planning and networking event on Tuesday 12th Jan from 6pm at The Hive Dalston. Here we will discuss together and in our teams the proposed activities and assign tasks according to everyone’s capacity. Everyone can bring something to the table, even if their time is limited.

What’s in it for you?

Aside from taking part in a fun, exciting and innovative community project that hopes to inspire others, participants can expect to:

  • connect and collaborate with great people and organisations
  • showcase what you can offer the community for free
  • feature in documentation and media coverage of the event
