This was a great and inspiring event to attend. We look forward to more collaborations in the future.
Over the years, many of us have been on a journey to support the development of our communities in Lewisham collectively, and as individual change-makers.
The event brought together and reignited connections between people and organisations in the spirit of collaboration, and celebrated our Black leaders and Trailblazers young and old. On behalf of KINARAA and the Lewisham Young Mayors Team, we would like to say thank you for attending and making the event such a success and being part of the important conversations started that evening.
We would also like to say thanks to Pat and Pinky’s who provided the amazing food and to the Irie Dance company for treating us all to a sample of the amazing spectacle Groundation - Dancing From the Archives which ended the evening in splendour and celebration. - Barbara, Kinaraa
“It was a great to sit and be in a space where those of us including our elders and parents created an audience to listen to young people share their vision and experience of Leadership
I was moved hearing Louis's journey and words of affirmation. I found it also powerful listening to our Young Mayor and Deputy Young Mayor give their thoughts on Lewisham and who inspires them. I am excited to see sparks of conversations which will inspire our wider community going forward.”
- Jacob, Young Mayors Team
