Make:Shift is your chance to put forward your views about how to 'Change the City of Wolverhampton with an idea.' No idea is too big or too small as long as you're prepared to own it and drive it forward.

This year's event will be held on Saturday 11 November, 2017 10am to 4pm, at the Bob Jones Community Hub, Bromley Street, Blakenhall, Wolverhampton. WV2 3AS and will also unveil an amazing initiative set to transform Wolverhampton.

You can participate in workshops and get behind the ideas set to make Wolverhampton an even better place to live.

Make:Shift is the place to be for inspiration, collaboration and support, and as well as the day itself, we've got lots of other activities going on in the months leading up to it:

  • Make:Inspiration - pop in to Wildbytes Café on Darlington Street from 12pm on any of the these Thursdays - 14 September, 12 October and 9 November. Order some lunch or a coffee (or bring your own). Eat your lunch over an inspiring TED talk, with an opportunity for a follow-up discussion with like-minded folk! Leave when you want to.
  • Make:Ready - visit inspirational venues in the city that are already changing Wolverhampton with an idea. Network over coffee and cake, take part in skill sharing activities and leave feeling inspired. The first of these is at Gatis Community Space starting at 5pm on 17 August for a couple of hours.
  • Make:Soup - We will be launching Wolverhampton's first SOUP at the Make:Shift event. For a small donation you receive a light lunch and a vote. You get to listen to pitches from 4  projects, network with other people and vote on the project you think will benefit the city most. The winner goes away with money to kick-start their project, although everyone's a winner as relationships are forged and ideas are shared.
