A women’s street art group that runs out of Baggator. Exclusively for women over 16, the sessions aim to teach street art skills, encourage creativity, and also brighten up the courtyard with beautiful visuals and positive messages to inspire and empower people.
Super Supper Club/BaggaBites
Every week we collect ‘waste’ food from supermarkets, sort and prep it. We add to this from donations of ingredients from local shops. Then every Weds evening we cook it all up into a delicious 3 course meal for our community, providing meals for people who need them. BaggaBites is our weekly free hot evening meal for young people – who we call Young Citizens. From 5:30 – 6:30 on Thursdays, the Young Citizens can socialise with others and use the space for entertainment while enjoying their meal.
Atamai Tutor Centre
This is a volunteer-run tutoring centre set up as a response to inequalities in education, which have been exacerbated and amplified by the current pandemic. Atamai tutors help school-aged children with any areas they need support with.
Women-only Keep Fit and Girls Creative Dance
These sessions are aimed at women who haven’t had access to fitness classes before and may not feel confident enough to try out exercising. They involve stretching, light exercises and relaxation techniques. The free sessions are an opportunity to practice general fitness in a supportive and nurturing environment. Creative Dance is a weekly session for young girls (8-16 years old) to encourage and empower each other and work effectively as a group. This is a space for dancing, choreographic own styles, playing with art material and more. It’s a safe, supportive and fun environment for the young girls to play.
Set up by local women to help support other women, particularly those who may face religious or cultural barriers, to learn how to cycle. It started with a conversation about getting back in to cycling and encouraging other women to cycle too. The response from Muslim women has been overwhelming but all women are welcome, irrespective of belief or colour.
