The Hornbeam Cafe and Art Catcher Ltd are looking forward to their WMAG Fundraiser Gig No. III, presenting musical artists from the UK and worldwide, with songs reflecting on the societal and political state of their countries and the world.
We are happy to welcome singer-songwriter Juli Szatmari from Hungary (now lives in Bielefeld, Germany), whose songs are increasingly deeply concerned with the state of the world and attitudes she observes in European countries including her own. Juli creates a great rapport with the audience and will leave you feel like she has sung this concert just for you! Do have a listen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=09KJ0VWaThA
Juli’s concert will be preceded by some percussion by Alex Nikolakakis, requiring a bit of audience participation! As usual, 50% of the evening’s proceeds go to the work of Walthamstow Migrants Action Group. £6 advance, £7 on the door. Buy your advance ticket at https://ticketlab.co.uk/event/id/2722
As a brief summary, to deliver our classes, we typically partner with schools, children’s centres and other community organisations. Our partners provide the space and recruit the learners (and receive £120 per learner that attends 50% of the course), and we provide a trained volunteer to deliver the classes.
We are now looking for new partners in Waltham Forest and want to make sure we’re complimenting and adding to existing provision. For further information about the project Contact Calley: firstname.lastname@example.org

Connecting Communities is a new programme soon launching across the borough. It aims to improve the life chances of residents by making our communities feel safer and more connected. We want people in Waltham Forest to be proud of their different backgrounds, cultures and faiths, while feeling part of the bigger community.
What are the networks? To help the council and community work better together, we have formed four local networks in Walthamstow, Chingford, Leyton and Leytonstone. At the first round of network meetings in December, residents shared what they see are the key challenges for their area and mapped some of the valuable work that’s already happening across the borough. It was a chance for people to get to know others and share ideas.
What now? Following your feedback, we would like to join all networks together at one big meeting. As well as having the chance to network with others beyond your local area, attendees will also be involved in shaping some ideas which will become pilots in the borough over the coming months.
