Future Shed Friday (Art & Making Focus)

13th May 2022 @ 09:30 - 13:30

Future Shed Fridays – A welcoming, weekly space to help bring green and healthy initiatives to fruition.

The focus for this Future Shed is Art & Making.

Do you work as an artist or maker? This could be in visual art, performance, music or as a social participatory artist, or arts producer. Do you want to explore how you can respond to the health of our planet and ourselves, and be part of a network of others who want to take action?

This is our first Future Shed focused session on art and making. Please come for 10am to connect about art in relation to wellbeing & climate.

Free Marketing Training for Future Shedders with Jenna from Gumption Agency from 11am to 12 noon – great opportunity to focus on social media, marketing and growing your audience. Please select Marketing Training Ticket at checkout – max of 8 places..

Future Shed timings:

9.30am -1.30pm : open for co-working

10am -11am: informal chat around the table to discuss the ideas and connections in the room and any support that can be offered from the Future Shed team. (You don’t have to join for this – continue co-working if you like).

12pm- 12.30pm: break, lunch, hang out

(If a 10am meet up doesn’t work for you to connect, get in touch, and we’ll work out a time to suit).

Future Shed is about:

Ideas and connections: we are cooking up ideas to make real change around climate and wellbeing. This is a space to meet up, connect and build relationships to effect change. It doesn’t matter what stage of a project you’re at, whether you’re already in the thick of it, just toying with an idea or simply passionate about making a difference but not sure how? Everyone’s welcome.

Co-working: use our professional co-working space and our workshop / makerspace and meeting room – for free. Make use of our facilities including fast WiFi, fabulous ethical teas and coffee, and desks with beautiful plants.

We are focusing some Future Sheds on a theme so that people can plan when to come, but you’re welcome to come and find out about Future Shed / cowork / connect whatever your interest

Further support from Future Shed on offer:

🌱 free 121 coaching from a qualified social enterprise coach with a wealth of experience of starting social enterprises and community projects in Frome and beyond.

🌱 free 121 support to access funding from a Frome-based professional fundraiser with 25 years experience of working on both sides of the fundraising fence.

🌱 making connections with others across Frome who are focusing on wellbeing and climate action, who could help you open new doors, learn new skills and move your idea on a step.

If you’d like more information about what the Future Shed offers, contact Hannah and Sue via greenhealth@edventurefrome.org or contact Sue on 07434 898059.

As this is a National Lottery Funded project in partnership with Frome Town Council and Frome Medical Practice, we have criteria we need to meet. Most projects and ideas fit into the offer, but occasionally (especially for projects directly focusing on health) we will need to discuss your idea to ensure it fits! Contact us with any questions you have.

Why ‘Future Shed’?

The ‘shed movement’ is about people meeting up in a space to share skills, helping each other to fix, repair and create. Our ‘shed’ is about the Future – our shed is about ideas, energy, creativity and connection. Our ‘shed’ is about meeting up to build relationships, start ups and growing initiatives . We can also use it as a space for practical making. It is a space where people come together to share ideas and bring green and healthy initiatives to fruition.

Future Shed is a project by Edventure: Frome as part of the Green & Healthy Future for Frome project in partnership with Frome Medical Practice and Frome Town Council. It is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.

Future Shed Friday sessions are hosted by Sue Palmer, Future Shed Lead & Green & Healthy Future for Frome Project Manager.
