The Ideas Test welcomed community catalysts and their friends to a fun filled evening of ‘Ideas Testing’ at The Oast House Community Centre recently.
For a damp and dark Wednesday evening, it was a great turnout, with a goodly proportion of new people amongst the catalysts. In a lovely, collaborative atmosphere, everyone enjoyed themselves immensely and came up with some top notch ideas for Swale and Medway.
We enjoyed meeting everyone and hope they in turn met some interesting people, had useful conversations and of course, had lots of fun playing ‘Art Monopoly’ and ‘Creative Consequences’. A big ‘thank you’ also, to Missy Maybe, Sophie Williams, Tendei and Thomas Kelly for entertaining us all so beautifully with comedy and music.
The ideas and enthusiasm were fantastic and we’ve been busy collating all of the feedback and comments – the Wordle above shows the things they told us they like to do.
Creative Enabler, Steph Fuller, said: “This event was so valuable for us, helping to shape and inform our plans, with the ideas feeding into next year’s planning for new projects. We’ll shortly be releasing more in depth information of what we’ve learned so far – watch this space!”
