A video from our volunteers and supporters

In Winter 2016/17 in conjunction with the Outreach Community Living Room project funded by Near Neighbours, a group of volunteers and supporters of Significant Seams created a video to share their feelings and the impacts of our work, and particularly the space we created with them. Sadly, due to funding realities, our headquarters space – the original Community Living Room, had to close in the Spring of 2017. However, what became clear was that the space, whilst an important mechanism, was not, IS not the community. Neither is Significant Seams the subject. This remarkable group – eclectic, caring, and talented – have become a community. Many continue to meet up regularly. Some still volunteer with us. Most are in some level of contact. In Walthamstow, we strengthened the seams of community for five and a bit years… and the people we worked with are continuing the work.
