Over 350 members of the community helped us celebrate our jam-packed Open Week recently, taking part in a wide variety of free wellbeing, cultural and educational workshops and activities.
EVI was able to reopen to the public this year after partial closure during the pandemic, due to funding from the UK Government*. To celebrate, we put on an eclectic Open Week full of free activities for the community. From digital skills training, wellbeing classes and a Paul Robeson exhibition, to family crafting and educational workshops, providing free healthy children’s lunches in the summer holidays, and a chance to socialise at Afternoon Tea – the week had activities and sessions for everyone. Take a look at what we had going on and our pictures from the week;
Our Open Week was funded by the UK Government through the UK Community Renewal Fund*
*The UK Community Renewal Fund is a UK Government programme for 2021/22. This aims to support people and communities most in need across the UK to pilot programmes and new approaches to prepare for the UK Shared Prosperity Fund. It invests in skills, community and place, local business, and supporting people into employment.
