Harlesden Virtual Quiz

This is a relaxed, social engagement event, created to be fun, spark interest and share general knowledge of the canal and surrounding areas. It is an opportunity to further share ideas, learn more about the canal and its history whilst meeting others interested in the canalside project and those on the team behind the design. 

We ask that you bring your friends and create a team of 5, or we can help you to join others and meet new friends, by placing you into a group.

Harlesden Canalside ‘Your Voice Matters’ Webinar

This event focuses on the ideas and feedback collected through engagement so far.  

We have grouped comments into four main themes: Environment, Youth and Legacy, Mending, Making and Meeting - hub purpose, Supporting our Under-represented Community.  

There will be speakers to present these four themes including, a representative from the Canals & River Trust, Dawn Butler MP for Brent Central, Danny Coyle Headteacher of Newman Catholic College,  and an Architect from We Made That with more tbc;  After which, attendees will break out into groups to discuss how your ideas can be used to support them.

Each group will then have an opportunity to discuss with the other participants and this information will feed into the design.

We also hope to identify people willing to form a sounding board who will continue to engage with 3Space, We Made That and OPDC throughout the design and build process.
