Kirkstall Valley Grants Award Ceremony @ Open Source Arts
We invite you to join Kirkstall Valley Grants to hear about and to help shape the projects improving the lives and the environment in the Kirkstall Valley.
 
This is the third Kirkstall Valley Grants awards event, with 11 brilliant projects already taken place in Armley, Bramley, Kirkstall, including building hedgehog homes workshops, creating edible beds, and planting fruit trees with neighbours.
These projects have really shown the fantastic things that are made possible when a community gets together to collaborate for the climate with a little financial help.
 
We would love you to help support and shape the ideas for the next projects. You are invited to join a table and find out more about the project ideas – you might offer yourself as a mentor, know someone else who would be interested in helping, have ideas about where to look for practical help, or be able to offer words of support to people who might never have done anything like this before!
 
You will also meet the awardees of the previous round, and find out how their project went, learning from each other, and sharing tips and skills.
 
At this award event, we will be awarding micro-grants to four deserving projects! Come along to see applications at the final stage present their projects, and meet with people with great ideas!
 
Free to attend, and free food provided.
