Hackney Giving Live with The Funding Network and a comedy set from the fabulous Ava Vidal.

22nd June 2017 - 6:30pm

Our next Hackney Giving Live event will be taking place on Thursday 22nd June in the stylish offices of Capco at 77-79 Great Eastern Street, EC2A 3HU. Come and support three local grassroots charities as they pitch for funding:

The Huddleston Centre: The Huddleston Centre have been working with families in Hackney since 1984. They are seeking funding to support young people with disabilities to create their own meaningful employment opportunities by becoming a Social Enterprise Incubator and Employability hub. The Hackney Giving event will help to fund their pilot scheme; Huddleston Juice!

Storeys: Storeys runs arts projects that support the emotional wellbeing of care leavers and children at risk of exclusion. Storeys works through group sessions, and encourages participants to explore their creativity, and produce a portfolio of work to be proud of. This is then showcased in a celebratory exhibition.

Vital Exposure: Vital Xposure will recruit an Associate Writer to initiate work with four disabled playwrights. They will train disabled writers through a structured programme of coaching, mentoring and staged productions. The programme will be delivered at our base in Hackney Empire and will impact on the participants’ future professional prospects.

Register for tickets here.

Tickets are only £10!  And as well as supporting local charities you will have a great evening learning about grassroots community initiatives. Plus, you will be treated to a special comdey set from the wonderful Ava Vidal.

Refreshements will be served.
