Inspired by East London's Project Phakama's visit to the Petit Dejeuner 'breakfast' event in Paris, young people from Phakama lead on a new community event lunch which will focus on welcoming new and existing East London communities to come together and share in food donated by local eateries and restaurants.
This lunch is a family-friendly event for local families, refugees and migrants, community groups and young people. The event will be hosted by Phakama's young people, with collaborations alongside young people from Paris Radio station Radio Raptz and dance organisation La Permanence Choregraphique. Come and take part in this Community Lunch with improvised dance creations, music performances and a strong sense of celebrating togetherness. Organisations can contact Phakama directly on any potential groups who would like to attend.
The event will showcase and celebrate ideas around how creativity can positively effect marginalised people and communities. This event is produced alongside researchers from Queen Mary University of London whose research is themed around home, migration and creative practice.
