Run by Talk to me London and the RSA’s Connected Communities team, the week will encourage people in the New Cross area to interact more with people they do not already know, in an effort to reduce the feelings of isolation and alienation in the city, and to increase the sense that New Cross is a friendly neighbourhood. The Connected Communities research has revealed strong links between people’s satisfaction with their neighbourhood, and their health, life satisfaction, and wellbeing.
The signature ‘Talk to me SE London’ badge will be available to pick up in many locations around New Cross. Wearing the badge indicates to others that you’re friendly and want to talk. We’re also working with a number of local organisations to organise flagship events – more information and a full listing of events can be found on our website: http://www.talktomelondon.org/
Here are some ideas for ways you can join in:
- pick up a Talk to me SE London badges from locations in New Cross throughout the week eg New Cross Learning, local hostelries.
- be an ambassador. On Sat Oct 26 and Sun Oct 27 the project will be giving out Talk to me SE London badges in New Cross as well as flyers explaining what will be happening during the week! Interested in helping? Email at firstname.lastname@example.org
- participate in the ‘Talk Stop Challenge’. Patricio Forrester will be transforming several bus stops in New Cross and turning them into ‘Talk Stops.’ If you have any creative ideas, email them to email@example.com
- join an event – Talk to me dinner, Talk to me pub quiz and closing party are open to all. See programme.
- organise your own event/activity. The project encourage you to organise your own activities during the week. It could well be something you’re already organising during the week but which would fit under the wider ‘Talk to me’ theme. More ideas here
