You, Me, The World and Tower Hamlets

01 November — 01 October

The Yard has joined forces once again with take stock exchange to bring conversations and stories to another part of London. This time Tower Hamlets. We will be working in the Weavers; St Peter’s; Bethnal Green; Spitalfields and Banglatown wards. Over the next year we will be working with a range of groups across economic, cultural, ethnic, religious and age barriers. From mosques to schools to gardening groups, we’ll be meeting a wonderful variety of people, aiming to foster empathy and build understanding.
