Friday 24th January 6 to 9pm
Clare Gage, local businesswomen and Fellow of the Royal Society of Art has been leading Create Change Chesterfield. For the first event of 2020, Clare has organised an evening of inspiration for creating change in our world.
We will be joined by Alex Barker from Be More Pirate who will inspire us with a talk on the radical ideas we can learn from pirates...are we ready to start rewriting some rules?
We’ll also be joined by local folk band Jig For A Kiss who will be providing the music to entertain us as we bring our evening to a close.
Throughout the evening we will be reaching out to hear YOUR ideas on future Create Change Chesterfield events. There will also be opportunities to connect with local community groups who are involved in action throughout our town.
This is a family-friendly event with food and drink provided, so join us for your tea and stay to get inspired for action in 2020! This is a free event, open to everyone.
