Sustainable communities in Hackney: January 14 students' presentation at Wally Foster Community Centre

Email rec'd from Matthew Wood-Hill, Development Planning Unit, University College London
Dear All,

Thank you a lot for all your support so far with the work on Justice in the Green. The feed-back from the students are really positive and we are looking forward to seeing the outcomes of their work. We would like to invite you to take part on two upcoming Justice in the Green events: the students' presentation and the exhibition.

*Students' Presentation:*
We would like to invite you to join on January 14 the students'  presentation at the Wally Foster  Community Centre.

Your presence would be crucial and really important so that they can share with you their major findings as well as receive feed back from you on the work done so far. During that  presentation they will also be introducing their idea/pitch for the short video clip they are producing as an audio-visual report. The objective is that this video will be uploaded in the Justice in the Green website together with a series of testimonials to start building up an interactive map of Hackney Marshes and surrounding green areas. The idea is that in the future community members will be able to upload themselves videos, events, statements and pictures related to these areas. After receiving your feed on findings and pitch, they will still have a week to refine their analysis and outputs.

Bellow is the schedule for the day:

10.00-10.30 - Group 1:  Unstructured Play
10.30-11.00 - Group 2: Collective Sports
11.00-11.20 - Break
11.20-11.50 - Group 3: Cultivating Spaces
11.50-12.20 - Group 4: Creative Arts Expression
12.20-13.00 - General Discussion
13.00-14.00 - Lunch
14.00-14.30 - Group 5: Being with Nature
14.30-15.00 - Group 6: Moving through Nature
15.00-16.00 - Discussion and Wrap-up

*The Exhibition:*
Also we are already preparing for an exhibition at some point in February (probably also at the Wally Foster Community Centre) where we hope we could have a day of discussions and interaction among community members engaged on the use and appropriation of public/green spaces in Hackney. It would be great to get the various community groups interested to have stands/spaces to present their work or/and run activities/workshops during the day of the exhibition. From the UCL side, we would like to present the interactive map in this event and explain to the wider community how it works.

Please let us know if you will be able to attend the events and, in the case of the exhibition, if you are interested in having a space in the hall. We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you there!

Best wishes,
