Street Life

Street Life, run by Kay Richardson from Space Embrace is a project really close to my heart. It aimed to co-produce two community festivals based around wellbeing with local young people in Homerton and Hackney Wick wards.

The festivals focussed on wellbeing through healthy eating and the 5 to thrive theory, responding to local young people’s demand for themes that addressed mental health issues.

As learning partner on this, I took the opportunity to get as involved as possible; helping to realise the project by running workshops with the collaborative team, engaging local young people as volunteers, designing the feedback process, and suggesting improvements for further activity.
