Made in Lambeth

Come and create, design and do - Made in Lambeth

Imagine a council where people play an active role in planning and running key services in their local communities.  

Our challenge is to explore and prototype innovative ways to engage local people in shaping and running key Lambeth services. 

We have three engagement challenges for this first in a series of Made in Lambeth gigs.

The first is improving communications and how we can open up Lambeth's online presence to foster more two way dialogue and engagement to help make it a place where co-operative stuff starts happening.

The second is prototyping ways of engaging Lambeth folk in improving provision of health and social care services across the borough through greater co-operation and more open feedback loops.

And the third is all around finding new ways to get diverse groups of Lambeth folk engaging in re-imagining Lambeth's 60+ parks and green spaces and developing new ways to run and develop them. 

The event will be hectic, creative, full on, fun, and have a great soundtrack. 

What next?

We’re now seeking applications for up to 40 people to come and build something awesome over the weekend- a crew of thinkers, makers and doers.

We need all sorts of diverse experts from different disciplines - web developers, graphic designers, Facebook developers, mobile developers, communicatiors, Lambeth council experts, Lambeth social entrepreneurs, anthropologists, digital UI/UE designers, animators, producers, strategists, social web experts....

There will food, drinks, music and a chance to meet the team from the Lambeth. For all the teams this will be a chance to get involved in making the co-operative council happen
