We had a great time at the Marvellous Marketplace at Merchants Hall.
In the summer time we were awarded funding for Summa Flava (our Hip Hop Summer School) by the Women's Fund, and we were invited to come and have a stall to explain our project at the Marvellous Marketplace Event.
We met lots of interesting people, and learned loads about other projects that have also received funding. We got to talk, not only about Summa Flava, but also about the projects we are planning for the future, including Queen 16 (watch out for more details soon).
The support and encouragement that we receive from these kind of events is essential. Funding becomes more and more difficult to obtain, so having a platform to engage with people about our past projects and our hopes for the future was a great opportunity. On this note we'd like to thank the Women's Fund and Foundation Scotland for the invitation, and hope to remain in touch with all the people we connected with.
