Project three
Diverse Movement
Diverse Movement would be an event for people, from all different back grounds to showcase their talent. My vision is to have a wide range of talented people in one venue to bring them together, so they can network with each other. This could hopefully fuse and create a new diverse generation of performers. The age rating for this showcase would before all age group (For performers and the audience).
People who can get involved with the showcase:Performers:- Musicians Dancers Actors Magicians
Others:- Directors Fashion Designers Investors Athletes Artists
Musicians, Actors, Dancers & Magicians
To get onto the showcase each act would have to audition. This would be a small audition process that a panel within the industry judge. Out of the audition process 10 acts will be chosen to perform. The outcome to this would be a possible recognition by someone within the industry and to have fun and to network with others who have a similar outcome in life. The reason for all the different acts is to show that this is not a typical showcase. It’s to show that there is a wide range of talent within all genres.
Inventors, Athletes, Artist, Fashion Designers
These will be set up at the main entrance of the venue and will all have a stand where they can promote their products and offer opportunities. People coming to the show could be into athletics, fashion ETC so therefore could be offered an opportunity such as audition dates for a sports club. This is also a way to network with others

A BRAND NEW COMMUNITY FOOD-GROWING PROJECT IN VICTORIA PARK

Update: For October 2009 - February 2010

LONDON BOROUGH OF TOWER HAMLETS HAVE SAID YES TO DIGFOOD AS PREFERRED PROJECT PARTNER

WE ARE ON OUR WAY. WE WOULD LOVE YOU TO GET DUG IN AND HELP PUT 'YOUR' PARK PROJECT ON THE MAP!

Contact details: digfood1@aol.com or call Tony on 07984 127788

DigFood@VictoriaPark is a new local community group. We are aiming to develop a vibrant education-based food-growing project, open to all. We aim to provide an opportunity for all in our community to learn more about the many benefits of growing and using fresh and local food.

How you can work with DigFood now!

A CALL FOR VOLUNTEER INPUT…..........can you spare a couple of hours a week? Less? - More?!! We know your time is precious, but together we can put our time to great use and get DigFood diggin.

We would be very happy to hear from anyone interested in working with us in the following areas:

- FUNDRAISING EVENTS ORGANISER & ASSISTANT(s) This is a great opportunity to help get our community together and raise funds in a variety of ways…….We would love one person to step forward to be our events organiser.
We are also sure that many of you among the 500 or so on our mailing list will have great ideas and local contacts to help kick-start an event......Please get in touch with those ideas!
Perhaps you are involved in a local band/club/venue/sports activity/whatever and would like to help? Perhaps you can suggest suitable venues? We hope to work-up a number of fundraising events over the spring/summer, so lets hear from you soon.

- BUSINESS PLAN DEVELOPMENT…….Back in 2008, when we first launched our plans, LBTH felt it was not possible to include our community project in their Heritage Lottery Bid for the redevelopment of Victoria Park. Therefore, we sought appropriate food project funding avenues ourselves. We were thrilled to have our intial stage 1 funding application for 300,000 pounds approved in January 2009. It was not possible to progress our Stage 2 application until LBTH had confirmed us as the preferred partner for our project. With that status proudly in place, we have regrouped and continued to work on the necessary steps to make our 2nd stage funding application succeed. We are about ready to put our plans together and we would welcome input over the next 8-10 weeks (to April 2010) from 1 or 2 people who have business plan development skills and can dedicate a few days work to this key DigFood deliverable. Call or mail us now!

- WEBSITE DESIGN………… We aim to be a registered Charity very soon and really do need a website! It would be great to hear from someone who could work with us and design an exciting DigFood@VictoriaPark website…..could that be you? Go on, get in touch and give us your much-needed skill and creative input!

- PUBLIC RELATIONS……... assisting our Steering Group in liaison with the wider community food-Growing community (locally and nationally), run our press-release strategy , organise local events and expand our key-contact list.

- PUBLICITY MATERIAL, DESIGN AND PRODUCTION
Helping us with poster and flyer design and production. To-date we have relied on basic publicity material and flyer-design. We would love to hear from someone with creative flair who can help design and produce great DigFood flyers and promotional information.
Perhaps you have the 'technology' to help us produce a series of information-boards for our DigFood promtional stall, so we can look our best at local fairs etc over the coming months...We hope to hear from you!!

- 2012 OLYMPIC LIASON……..developing contacts in relation to community involvement in the 2012 Olympiad......We want DigFood@VictoriaPark on the map and feeding athletes and visitors in 2012!...we need somebody now to help us tap into the 2012 global party....come forward and take on a great job........the 1st objective will be to come up with ideas and find us a 2012 Olympic Patron.

PLUS!!............A JOB FOR EVERYONE! - Think of local friends and contacts that may not yet be aware of our project and pass this update on to them:

People you know who want to grow food.

Those keen to get involved in what promises to be a great local community hub.

Those who want to teach children about where food comes from; how eating local seasonal food helps the environment and how eating fresh food is a healthy way forward for us all.

People you know who may ultimately be interested in a job at DigFood. We budget in our plans for 4 full-time and 4 part-time posts.
