#ReclaimOurSpaces was a collaborative event held on Saturday 25th of June at Conway Hall. The Ubele Initiative, Just Space and Spark were the main organisers who offered participants an opportunity for community organisations to come together and discuss how communities can influence government policy and secure community spaces.
On Wednesday 4th April, we drove six hours north of Johannesburg to the town of Tzaneen ( in the Limpopo Province of South Africa), to attend an ‘unveiling ceremony ‘ in one of the local villages. This is a ceremony whereby the family of a person who has passed formally unveils their headstone and celebrates their life.
In October 2011, Ubele contributed to an event hosted by LSx called Not Putting the Lid Back On. Londoners from all walks of life have played their part in prevention and clean-up of the August riots. Now there is an appetite from people across the city to address what needs to be done to ensure something similar doesn’t occur again.
