Time to Act, to Speak, to Create, Time to Engage with our Community
Time to Act was a community development project that spanned over 6 months involving different communities in Lewisham. StoneCrabs worked in collaboration with Lewisham Time Bank Project Coordinator to develop and run a series of drama based workshops to be delivered to residents of Milton Court Estate.
Its main objective was to stimulate and engage the residents of Milton Court estate in a process of community building. It was a site specific project, tailored to the concerns of the Milton Court community. The workshops provided members with a safe space to meet and engage in discussions on multiculturalism and the development of positive attitudes in the process of building a more tolerant, peaceful and respectful community.
The end of the project was celebrated with a community fun day held at the Woodpecker Centre on the Milton Court Estate in Deptford. As a result of the project local residents were inspired to join forces to create their own Residents’ Association.
