Thanks to everyone who came to the "co-production: social change in action" event last night. I enjoyed it loads (and people have said that they did too, so that's cool.)

Just a quick note to say that due to timings (and having to invent a screen to project onto), we didn't get a chance to chat about potential new projects at the end, so we're going to get together to chat about it on Monday (this coming Monday - 1st July).
Where: at mine, 15 Janet Street, Splott, CF24 2BD
When: from 7pm
There may even be cake, and juice, and there will always be lots of fancy teas.

There are a couple of things in the pipeline -

1. The IDEO + acumen free 5-week course "human-centered design for social change" (http://plusacumen.org/courses/hcd-for-social-innovation/) - we're getting together a Cardiff team, deadline to register is Wednesday 3rd July.

2. The People's Health Trust has got £50k funding over 2 years for active communities. (http://www.peopleshealthtrust.org.uk/apply-for-funding/active-communitie...) Could we do something with that? Deadline for application is mid July.

3. At last night's event one of the groups started talking about issues affecting Splott, including the (existence and) implantation of heavy industry, and how this affects the neighbourhoods. This may be something to explore within 1. and 2. ...

4. Finally, I'm up for setting up a Cardiff Good For Nothing chapter (http://www.goodfornothing.com/good-in-your-hood) and so if there's a chance to talk about that and see if anyone else is interested, that would be good. I see it as an opportunity to build bridges with other existing groups in Cardiff and come together as a loose collective of organisations - not reinventing the wheel. I mean ARK is doing pretty good right?! Thoughts and ideas welcome.

See you all around.
