Love Grangetown 2020 goes digital
7 January 2021
Every year since 2015, Community Gateway has held Love Grangetown as an annual partnership event, bringing together existing and new partners in Grangetown and Cardiff University to strengthen and develop collaborative projects.
Unable to deliver the traditional celebration in the Grange Pavilion due to Covid-19, this year the project went online, bringing together over 50 university and community partners to share ideas and commit to collaborating.
Love Grangetown 2020, run in collaboration with Creative Cardiff, was launched with spoken word from Hanan Issa, celebrating the richness of cultural diversity in Grangetown and Wales, and ended with a call to action from Ali Abdi, Community Gateway Partnerships Manager.
The Love Grangetown 2020 survey received over 150 responses, representing Grangetown’s multiple communities. Survey participants identified Clean Streets and Green Spaces, Safe Grangetown, and Provision for Young People as priority areas for 2020-21, and conversations at Love Grangetown explored ways in which existing and new partnership projects could support these aims.
Community Gateway will continue the conversations throughout January 2021 in a series of smaller, informal online sessions hosted by team members. If you would like to meet us online in January, and meet other Grangetown and Cardiff University partners developing projects together, or if you have an idea for a partnership project to develop with us, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
