Here To… thank you for attending the launch event!

Here To Islington launched on Saturday at Platform and what a day it was! Thank you very much to all the local residents and local organisations who came along to find out more about Here To Islington and celebrates its launch with us.

We had a fabulous dance performance by CocoJam, workshops by UnLtd, VAI, and the Estorick Collection and lots of older Islington residents dancing the afternoon away in a Yarn Dance (thanks to All Change, Cubitt and Age UK Islington).

The Here To team (looking lovely in their grey Here To Islington t-shirts) were able to show many people the website, and even managed to create some new projects and opportunities there and then – check out the latest opportunity on the site – ‘Centre in the Park’.

Cllr Barbara Sidnell said as part of her speech ‘it will attract people who might never have been interested before’, and that is exactly our aim! If you are one of these people, then please do check out the website or drop us a line at and tell us what we can help you with.

Lots of lovely photos were taken at the launch event and you can find them all by clicking here.

Here To Islington is running a workshop in partnership with Creative Islington tomorrow (30th January) at Lift on White Lion Street (near Angel) – if you want to find out more about Here To please do come along. Full details can be found here.
