In 2020, we are supporting the “Changing Minds In Challenging Times” project by Catalyst in Communities CIC through our Connecting People and Places funding, co-funded by Foundation for FutureLondon and City of London.

“Changing Minds in Challenging Times” is a project based across Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Newham and Waltham Forest.

We awarded “Changing Minds In Challenging Times” project a grant as it meets many of Connecting People and Places’s themes and priorities including creative learning, collaboration, participation, diversity, inclusivity, accessibility, training, engagement, outreach, improved life chances.

The project also focuses on young people and Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) people, some of the marginalised groups of beneficiaries we want to reach.

About the project

“Changing Minds in Challenging Times” is co-created with young people who featured in the acclaimed EastSide Story, an original piece of theatre commissioned by Waltham Forest, London Borough of Culture 2019, to offer creative opportunities to others. “Changing Minds in Challenging Times” uses creative artistic media, performance and coaching to develop a youth-led response to negative stereotypes and social pressures many young people face.

Using Catalyst in Community’s group-work intervention programme alongside master classes and practical hands-on experience, young participants work towards making their own ‘story’ productions and gain positive life skills.
