Creative and digital events organiser, Creative Kitchen, aims to help others with their next Made Here event on November 19th.
This month’s event has a focus on ‘Tech for Good’, with keynote speakers FACT, So-Mo and The Fresh Group. The event is led by the Alder Hey Children’s Foundation NHS Trust, whose Fresh CAMHS project works to address the subject of mental health with young people.
As part of this month’s event, the Creative Kitchen team have partnered with homeless support charity The Whitechapel Centre, to raise awareness for support offered to the city’s homeless community and ways we too can help.
On November 19th, the Creative Kitchen team would like members of the creative, digital and business community to donate old coats, clothes, towels, food, sleeping bags and more to be used in their city centre shelter.
All donations will be welcome throughout the day from 9am. The event venue, Launch22 at the Tempest Building on Tithebarn Street will welcome donations and delegates can also donate during the Made Here event at 5.30pm.
Creative Kitchen curator Gavin Sherratt commented:
“With our focus on tech for good at this month’s Made Here event we thought that we would encourage the creative and digital community to support a good cause.
“Given the growing issues related to homelessness, we thought of the good work carried out by The Whitechapel Centre and the need to support them in collecting much needed supplies of coats and clothes.
“As well as donations, we want to help them raise awareness of their No Second Night Out campaign – 0300 123 2041 is the number to call in order to help their support team be more aware of the location of rough sleepers in the city.
“Our sector is amazing at naturally supporting good causes and hopefully with our Made Here donations campaign we can help the Whitechapel Centre to support others with their good work during the cold winter months.
“I would encourage all of the region’s business community to support our donations campaign on November 19th.”
The Creative Kitchen Made Here concept has been designed to showcase Liverpool’s creative and digital talent, an promote the impact the sector has on the regions economic growth.
Previous events have seen award winning agencies such as Apposing, Uniform and Well Made enlighten the Creative Kitchen audience with insights to projects and the innovative ways they have developed their businesses.
