Meanwhile Use turns empty spaces and places into opportunities for communities and businesses. It is the temporary use of buildings or land for a socially beneficial purpose until they can be brought back into commercial use. The Meanwhile Use Toolkit provides help for those with an idea for a space in the London Borough of Croydon.
The Croydon Meanwhile Use competition gives winning entries in various categories £700, and runners-up £400 towards their set-up. Finalists also have the possibility of getting one of three bonus prizes of up to £500.
For those with an idea for a Meanwhile Use in Croydon there’s a host of available resources to help you including workshops, and that’s where we come in. We’ve been asked to share our expertise on creating a social media strategy and social media profile set-up at the Marketing Day at Matthews Yard on Weds 26th March.
Lets get some empty spaces in Croydon back in use, creatively too. The winners will be announced at an Awards Ceremony at Matthews Yard on the 30 April, 5.30pm. All are welcome!
