At Leicester Interchange we believe in great conversations being the bedrock of powerful collaborations, and this is why we have added the Changemaker Social to our offer. The idea behind it is to bring together social entrepreneurs and innovators to come along and share their thoughts and plans for the future with others whilst we provide them with cake, beer, coffee and tea. We know that making a difference, especially when trying to do it differently, can be hard and even lonely at times; so we want a to create a space where people can have fun, relax and connect with others.
Our first Changemaker Social took place on 4th October 2018 and it was great to see so many new faces. From budding entrepreneurs, to project leaders and funding advisors, there was a great mix of people - many of them meeting for the first time - to share their experiences with each other and think about how they can develop their work to make even greater impact across Leicester’s communities.
A huge thank you to our hosts for the evening, the wonderful Gail and Aaron at the Leicester Coffee House on Granby Street, a brand new social enterprise designed to support young people in the city in increasing their employability skills. We wish you guys the best of luck!
Details of our next Changemaker Social will be coming out soon. We’re planning for a December event, so keep an eye across our social media channels (we’re now on Instagram too) for more information as it’s released.
