Supporting community-led projects to help your local area recover from the COVID-19 crisis
Local independent businesses need a voice; we are applying for money to amplify our six businesses to the people of Tottenham and beyond. We want to create a town centre feeling around South Tottenham, Tottenham Hale and Tottenham Green; the area is currently largely dominated by one of the most successful retail parks in the country but we want to shout about the independent offering in the area (plus places to go and relax after splurging at TK Maxx or Lidl!). We believe that intelligently placed signage, maps and information will help let people know what a vibrant and exciting offer exists in the local area. We will also curate two days of community activity that brings the organisations together to share our love of Tottenham. Currently we are formed of Stronghold, Bernie Grant Arts Centre, Five Miles, Craving Coffee, Styx, and Chicken Town but we hope to partner up with many other businesses to bring a simple identity to the area that we love and work in.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
This idea will build a community around it's most dynamic spaces, allows us to work together for shared goals bringing each business a new audience. We want to promote Tottenham and the great selection of things there are to do here! Very simply this will take the form of a linked group of organisations that work together to help create a more joined up community. We want to share our passion and resources and introduce each other to new communities - we know that together we are stronger! Signage and Way-finding We will create an identity for our collected organisations and to create a map that guides visitors and residents to exciting new experiences. These will be displayed across the organisations and on 3D interventions across Tottenham. Launch and Street Party We recognise the value of bringing people together physically and with the launch and the street party we will come together to provide free activities across Tottenham with something for everyone!
Steps to get it done:
We will create and celebrate the communities of Tottenham. We will provide opportunities for local artists, performers and young people to engage with and deliver the Street Party. We will provide a space for people to try new activities and have new experiences.
