Outside the box

Jamming in Derby


Top three:
1. Out of the Box – Derby Circles
'Derby Circles' could be considered an umbrella organisation, which enables people who find themselves alone for varying reasons to meet others who feel at a loose-end, viz: recently moved to a new city, bereaved, divorced, elderly etc. The purpose of the organisation is to provide a non threatening venue where someone on their own can meet up with others (potential friends). This could be a open café area, back of a pub, a room at QUAD and so on. The biggest hurdle to be got over is the initial “getting out and meeting others”. Activities can then be organised by members for themselves and other members according to their interests.

2. Upcycling packaging/junk mail

3. Memory box
