What's happening in October?

1–31 October

Do you love to draw, or think you can't? The Big Draw Festival is your opportunity to join a global community in celebrating the universal language of drawing. So get a pencil in hand and join in some experimental drawing activities in your area!

5 October

From small things to big things, make someone's day by doing something nice: compliment a busy shop assistant or buy someone a coffee. You're guaranteed to put a smile on their face.

Online Video Making Workshop

3 October

Making (and sharing) videos can be scary. But it doesn’t have to be! We carry in our pockets a tool which can be incredibly powerful if used in the right way. Join our free online workshop to learn the tips and tricks which will help start making your own videos which look good, have a clear purpose, and get results.

Email plefort@edenproject.com for the link to the workshop.

Fun Palaces is an ongoing campaign supporting culture at the heart of every community, with an annual weekend of arts and science action created by, for and with local people

10 October 

A day to think about mental health and how you could mobilise others to do the same.

Make a Difference Day

27 October

Originally an American tradition, this day encourages volunteering in the community to do something that makes a difference to someone.  

11 October, Derry/Londonderry

We work hard to make connections within our communities but couldn't we be better connected with other projects? Join us for an afternoon of community conversation designed for volunteers and community organisers. Share your local insights and get the inside word on Grow Wild funding. Find out how to amplify your community ideas, get connected with The Big Lunch and people across Northern Ireland, bringing people together and making good things happen where they live.
