NR3 - Magdalen Street Celebration - 21 July

The Transition Norwich NR3 group decided they needed a focus for their group; we discovered we all had an interest in the arts and considered ourselves creative in one way or the other. It occurred to us that we should be using these skills to make a positive difference to the area; so over tea and biscuits the idea to organise a celebration of Magdalen Street and the surrounding area (Norwich's "Creative Quarter") was formed.

A first meeting was arranged and a really good turnout formed the committee of several motivated and enthusiastic individuals. The event has now been given the name “Magdalen Street Celebration” and the date is set for 2 October 2010. We have recently become part of the “Festival of Five” which is a Rethink initiative that runs from 25 September to 9 October. The “Festival of Five” is a celebration of the five ways to wellbeing: Connect – Be active – Keep Learning – Give – Take notice. These five ways complemented beautifully the general ethos we were hoping to generate through the event.

We want as much as possible to uncover local talent and skills and generally celebrate and promote the diversity of the area. If you would like to be involved, there are a wide range of opportunities to assist on the day, we are also looking for local artists/traders/craft people/ performers/musicians to come forward and take part (Karen Steadman).

For more information or to get involved either contact Karen on artoftheordinary@googlemail.com or come along to our next meeting: 7–9pm Wednesday 21 July, at 27 St. Augustin's Street. Follow http://www.magdalenstreet.blogspot.com/ for latest updates!
