Every One Every Day will be growing a network of projects and businesses across Barking and Dagenham over the next 5 years, launching in the borough in October and November 2017. It is a very ambitious project that aims to work with all the creativity and energy that already exists in the borough. Every One Every Day will invite people to suggest ideas for projects and businesses they would like to create together, providing the support needed to bring hundreds of these ideas to life quickly and without any complicated processes.
Every One Every Day will open 5 high street shops (starting with two in the first year) and a central warehouse. From these core spaces the team will work with people to create projects, arrange insurances and health and safety, facilitate the use of smaller functional spaces for the projects (kitchens, workshops, storage spaces etc), set up websites, produce newspapers, hold festivals, workshops and business development incubator programmes.
The aim of all this activity is to enable people to work together more easily to improve every day life for everyone living in the borough, ensuring it's an exciting, vibrant place to live and work, to grow up in and to grow older in.
As the initiative grows and develops we will be working with new local partners and industry to create more and more opportunities for apprenticeships, training and work experience. These might include opportunities to learn about practical business develop, re-training or self-employment ... or ways to learn new skills in research, social innovation or design.
