Location

Situation

According to the respondents of Lambeth Residents Survey Stockwell is the area with the lowest level of community cohesion in the borough. There is a great need for initiatives promoting integration and inclusion. Since the area is very diverse it is essential to bring the different communities living in Stockwell together. Therefore, an enjoyable event promoting Stockwell in all its richness would be a great step towards building a sense of belonging among the residents.

Solution

The Festival is a chance to celebrate the unique creativity, energy and diversity of Stockwell. The event gathers thousands of local residents in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. It is an opportunity to make new contacts, find out more about the neighborhood and get involved in the community. Local businesses, artists and charities are provided with a unique opportunity to promote themselves among the local residents. Since the event's aim is to promote social inclusion, it is free of charge.
