Introducing the Mayor’s Crowdfund London Workshops 2017

Crowdfund London gives you the opportunity to pitch your ideas, big and small, for projects which will make your local area even better.

Communities across London are coming together to imagine, fund and create local places that people love – from a community garden in the heart of the city, re-establishing a historic market or the creative use of forgotten spaces to ambitious plans to construct elevated parks and uncover forgotten lidos.

Now it’s your chance to play a part in transforming where you live. If you have an idea which will make your local area special, celebrates local character and brings people together then the Mayor of London could help you make it happen.

City Hall are looking for innovative ideas that benefit the whole neighbourhood and show community support through a spirited crowdfunding campaign. The best could attract a pledge of up to £50,000 from the Mayor to help you hit your target and bring your idea to life.

About the Author:

From teaching in the Tanzanian mountains to the digital universe of Spacehive, Aaron has stopped off in a few places along the way. After receiving an MA in Publishing from Oxford Brookes University, she worked for big internationals including Oxford University Press and the International Labour Organization, small but interesting types including Pambazuka Press and Internet Retailing Magazine before heading up the award-winning eSeller.net. Looking for her next big adventure she joined Spacehive as their Content Marketing Manager. Here she works the words whether describing the awesome potential of a civic crowdfunded future or outlining the many dazzling features of our grant-making software. She gets to meet the project creators and share their stories as well as working with our partners to ensure they have the material they need to make impact. Outside of work she mentors with The Girls’ Network, solves mysteries and once made jam from the blackberries in her garden of which she is inordinately proud.
