How can community spaces contribute to becoming platforms for systems change? We will be discussing this topic with Immy Kaur who is the founder and director of Impact Hub Birmingham.

Impact Hub Birmingham was founded in 2015 via a £65,000 crowdfunding campaign and has since become a community platform that supports place-based systems change. They are driven by Mission Birmingham to help build a fairer, more equal and just city through people, place and open movements. Impact Hub Birmingham is one of the organizations featured in Nesta’s list of New Radicals 2018.

One of Impact Hub Birmingham’s current projects is the #RadicalChildcare Systems Lab  that seeks to support the radical improvement of outcomes for children and families.
