Finding a Venue.
The first session we set up was a small community cafe, we knew the space well but the kitchen was on a different floor to the preparation space
so it was logistically quite difficult.
The second two sessions that grew
out of this happened in people's
homes – leading to a relaxed
atmosphere, but sometimes feeling
a bit less accessible and with some
element of stress around
opening your home.
Since then, we've run sessions in large,
well-resourced community centres,
and outside on the street - so most
locations are possible!
Things to think about when deciding:
How big is the area, is it too small or too big for the number you have in mind?
Is there a space that's safe and away from any kitchen area for the kids to prep?
Is there an area to the side of where the kids will prep that you can set up as a play area?
If you are paying for the venue, will the money you charge be able to cover the cost of the venue?
Are there enough resources in the venue - if not, do you have the transport to get resources there?
ight is an easy to readt works well on almost every site.
