ROAM: Where sustainability, business and culture meet
ROAM is a series of meetups arranged by Creative People and jelly arts with support from RSA Fellowship, taking place in a variety of different venues with a guest speaker and a chance to meet, discuss, debate, hear new stories, and develop ideas.
Sustainability and business
Pineapple is bringing together social entrepreneurs, large organisations, finance providers, incubators, accelerators and academics to create more social purpose businesses. We believe that by working together we have the ability to deliver the transformation needed to solve global issues, like the ones identified in the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
Reading-on-Thames Festival 2018
Anna hopes this will be THE festival for Reading, with the town being a big part of the celebration. The festival will use rivers as a backdrop and inspiration for an arts and cultural festival, bringing national arts organisations to Reading and providing a platform for local arts and community organisations to showcase their talent.
Great Places Scheme
Reading has been awarded a £550,000 Great Places Scheme grant to put arts, culture and heritage at the heart of the town. The award will support the development of a range of cultural projects across Reading to improve the health, well-being and quality of life of communities and boost economic success. Lara and her team are keen to identify ways to help vulnerable groups, such as the homeless.
