Wonderland cafe at Goldsmiths Community Centre

will you, won't you?
In true Alice in Wonderland style this blog post is topsy turvy.
As part of our ongoing involvement with the Creative Citizens project, Community led design strand, we opened up the time bank as a Wonderland Cafe on Monday 3 March. 

The project began in earnest in March 2013 with an asset mapping workshop at the centre, followed by a co-creation event, a community walk from Grove Park to Downham, and a short trip to the other side of the world (meridian zero, which passes through Boundfield Road near the junction of Scarlet Road).

Using an iPad equipped with a microscope lens, Abigail examines the area at the grass roots level
Some clues
Some characters
Some amazing food
And drinks

With grateful thanks to Dr Alan Outten, Helen Hamlyn Centre, Royal College of Art, for the photos and time lapse video. To Delphine and Indianna from Delicious most Nutritious for their inspired creations. To Liz, Chloe and Tracey for playing their parts so well, and to all who came along and made this event so unique and special.

Whatever next? 

Would you like to join us on our next adventure?

We will be creating a banner at Downham Celebrates, on Saturday 14 June at Downham Health and Leisure Centre, Moorside Road BR1. Please join us to celebrate Creative Citizens in Downham!
