In the words of their MD Sam Roberts, part of making things better is to ensure BTP - "has a positive societal impact and uses the talent in our teams and customers to make a real difference in the communities in which we serve” -… enter Good For Nothing.
We're going to explore how a physical cafe space, with its network of customers and the local community can connect to develop a strong Good for Nothing vibe in the city.
For now, we are focussing on four cities - Bath, Bristol, Exeter and Birmingham.
So here's the rub, to make this happen we need *you. *
We're inviting Birmingham folks to come and join us for an evening where you will hear how GFN works, then we'll share the different ways to activate the chapter with BTP, then we'll challenge you to design the chapter model you want to launch, the issues and projects you want to support, when you will run gigs and then we'll offer everyone a role in the chapter crew to make it happen.
So in three hours, you'll have designed, formed and launched the Birmingham chapter of Good for Nothing in partnership with Boston Tea Party.
We want to bring together existing GFN'ers, new curious folks, local social innovators and change makers, together with BTP team and interested customers and anyone up for gifting some of their creativity to people trying to make beautiful change in the city of Birmingham.
It's going to be epic, there'll be drinks, snacks, music and loads of possibility..
So please sign up here to confirm your place.
And if you have a point of view on social and environmental issues in the city that you think need help, or social innovators and change makers doing epic work who need some creative energy then please share them here, we'll be playing these back at the launch.
Spread the word about the bird and see you then.
Starts at 7pm
Finishes at 9pm
At Boston Tea Party at 190 Corporation St, Birmingham, B4 6QD
