We have a brand new Good For Nothing chapter in Exeter and we want you to get involved. We are collaborating with Boston Tea Party to run a Good For Nothing experiment in four of their cafes, including our local one in Queen Street, Exeter.

Two questions:
- Are you a local social or environmental project that needs some help?
- Do you live in Exeter and want to do Good in Your Hood by gifting your talent for nothing?
Then come to our Gig!

Are you attending?

Are you attending?

It’s simple: we’re looking for Projects + People in Exeter to come to our first Good For Nothing event.


Are you a local project or organisation in Exeter working on solving a social or environmental challenge? Do you want some Good For Nothing love? Would you like to share what you do and what challenges you face at our Pitch Night on 5th October? Then get in touch using the form below. As a collective we will try to help you overcome barriers you are facing in your project using the talent of the Good For Nothing community in Exeter. Over the course of two hours on 5th October, ten projects will be invited to come and share what they are doing in a fun and engaging way.

What is your project called? What do you do? Who is it for? and What do you need help with? The Good For Nothing Community in Exeter who have listened to your pitch will share connections, provide insight and support and shortlist three projects through to our next round. These three projects will be voted for online and in the cafe for the following four weeks and then get a 3hr Good For Nothing Gig in October/November.

Below you’ll see the format of our three month cycle, a guide to how to pitch, and form to submit your project. What’s the catch?

  • Your pitch needs to be under three minutes. No slides.

  • Your project needs to be Up and Running i.e your concept is proven with an owner/team

  • You have a disruptive approach that is tackling a social and/or environmental issue

  • Are you up for the party? You are willing to open up and let the Good for Nothing crew work freely on their brief from you.


Good For Nothing is a creative generosity network where folks gift their talents to help local social change projects in their city have more impact. Anyone can do Good For Nothing, please come along to our first gig to get involved and find out more.
