Social Innovation Pitch Day Mifriendly Cities

The MiFriendly Cities initiative has made £5,000 of funding available for migrant-led community projects in Birmingham, Coventry and Wolverhampton over the next year. Successful projects will be led by migrants to the benefit of everyone in their community, drawing on the untapped resources of migrants’ skills and ideas across the region, and letting migrants decide how their skills are put to use. Join us on Saturday 30th March for Pitch Day, when 18 different groups will present their ideas and pitch for funding. There will be free live music and refreshments, as well as the chance to network and learn more about migrant-led community initiatives in the West Midlands. Attendees at the event will be able to cast their 'vote' on their favourite projects. This will be taken into consideration by the panel of 'fluffy dragons'; although the panel members will have the final say.  Our panel members include: Dipali Chandra Secretary West Midlands Funders Network Cllr John Cotton Birmingham City Council Cllr Balvinder Kaur Coventry City Council Arten Llazari Chief Executive Refugee and Migrant Centre Piotr Wolkowinski UIA expert See you there.

MiFriendly Cities is a 3-year initiative that aims to develop innovative, community-led and sustainable approaches to enhancing the contribution of refugees and migrants across the West Midlands, specifically Birmingham, Coventry and Wolverhampton.
