Sew Ready is launching their ‘Fashion for Good’ programme on Friday 29th Sept – a fashion lead, art-based youth programme for 13-20yr olds for young people from across Northern Ireland.

This event will bring creative individuals together for an initial overview of the 6 month project allowing everyone to get a better understanding of what will be covered and suggest any unique ideas.

Together with fashion tutors and staff they will learn:

  • Pattern making skills
  • Garment construction methods
  • How to use a sewing machine & overlocker
  • Develop fashion illustrations & technical drawings
  • Develop colour board, mood board, consumer boards
  • Create capsule collection

Everyone will deliver their creative ideas throughout the project, resulting in a full portfolio and have an original fashion collection ready for a runway show in April 2024. At Sew Ready our vision is to create a successful, inclusive society where every stitch matters and every maker is equally valued.

Northern Lights

Northern Lights music event is included in the Shared Housing Programme which originates from the Northern Ireland Executive Together: Building a United Community Strategy.  The Strategy reflects the Executive’s commitment to improving community relations and continuing the journey towards a more united and shared society. 12 Housing Associations are involved in this event.

Community Connected Together Information Poster

Community Connected Together

Eden Project Communities invite you to celebrate Good Relations Week with us because we believe  we need strong, connected communities to support each other and protect our planet.

Through The Big Lunch, our Network, and community activity, we’re on a mission to create happier and healthier communities who are better equipped to face life’s challenges.

This event celebrates our network members’ progress and recognises all the people who hosted #TheBigLunch events to bring neighbours together.

It is timed as part of Good Relations Week to recognise the huge difference we all make when we come together and celebrate our culture and commonality.

Join us for a bite to eat and take the time to meet other people from across Northern Ireland taking positive community action.

What ever your area of focus, come along and enjoy lunch and the opportunity to connect.

The event is open to everyone.

A vegetarian buffet lunch will be available at 1pm followed by a very short presentation by Grainne McCloskey Eden Project Communities and plenty of time to chat and network, something we don’t take enough time for these days!

Feel free to bring along a colleague or community volunteer (please book a ticket per person attending).

Looking forward seeing you there!
