Future Shed Friday – Revisiting Our Ideas Board

September 9 @ 09:30 - 13:30

Free

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

We launched in April 2021 with an Ideas Board that gathered 250 ideas from the community to address climate and health in Frome. We have been working on food, textile reuse and wellbeing so far. What else was on the Ideas Board? Join us to find out, or bring along your own idea for a green / health project or enterprise.

Occasionally we update our events and activities. Please always check the Eventbrite listing for the latest information.

Future Shed is about:

Ideas and connections, collectives and enterprise – we are cooking up ideas and ventures to make real change around climate and wellbeing. This is a space to meet up, connect and build relationships to effect change. Come with your own idea, or join someone else’s. It doesn’t matter what stage you’re at, whether you’re already in the thick of a venture or just toying with an idea, or you’re passionate about making a difference but not sure where to start? Everyone’s welcome.

Future Shed timings:

9.30am – 1.30pm : Open for co-working and connecting – Future Shed Lead (Sue Palmer) available to connect with you about ideas and opportunities.

10am -11am: Meet Up – 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 in with this – continue co-working if you like). Come at 10am to find out what Future Shed is about and connect.

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

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 Sue via sue@edventurefrome.org / 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).
