We’re inviting Easton locals to decorate their windows and, over a weekend in January, open their curtains for the whole world to see what they’ve created. Your window could show a scene from a favourite film, family culture, anything you feel passionate about or just something silly. Keep it simple or go all out: as long as it’s family friendly, anything goes! Window Wanderland aims to bring communities together with a shared goal whilst reducing isolation by getting neighbours talking to each other. Rather than being competitive, the aim is to show that everyone in the community has a valid contribution to make. We are raising funds to keep the event and the accompanying activities free and open to all. We’re asking the community to help raise funds to pay for: Creative workshops where you can come for ideas and help with creating your display Materials to help people put their windows together Printing and design costs for the trail map
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Whether you were born in Easton or are a new arrival, there may be people living on your street or in your building that you don’t know much about. This is your chance to find out more about your neighbours and tell them a bit about yourself at the same time. And you don’t need an art degree to take part! The creative workshops will give you lots of ideas and even the simplest ideas can be really effective. By supporting this campaign you will be helping to keep the creative workshops and trail map free, which in turn will help us reach people from all over our vibrant community. No donation is too small! If you are able to afford it then please help us welcome a member of the community who may not otherwise be able to take part. Easton Window Wanderland is taking place on 20-21 January 2018 with an Up Our Street community meal to launch the event on 19 January. The creative workshops will be held in January and there will be several different days and times to suit everyone.
Steps to get it done:
Are you a BS5 business owner? Donate £60 or more to the fund and we'll add your business logo to the trail map. All 5000 maps will be distributed throughout Easton, making it a great advertising opportunity and a chance to show support for your local community!
