An invitation to the third Capital C event, Tuesday 10th March 2015 4.00 to 8.00pm

Seven Dials Club, Covent Garden, Central London

Following two successful pilot events in November 2014 and January 2015, Macmillan Cancer Support and Swarm are running a third Capital C event. Here's a super-short film of our first event

The aim of this 3rd event is to collaboratively develop and prototype tangible solutions to opportunities emerging from our first 2 events.

An energetic, diverse and creative community of Londoners affected by cancer is forming around the Capital C project. Together, we have built a detailed understanding of where and how people get their support and services, and what’s currently missing.

We have identified a range of opportunities in helping people manage the immediate and the long-term effects of cancer across all aspects of their lives. We have deliberately looked beyond NHS services to explore where Londoners affected by cancer could get support on their terms - at home, work or even at the supermarket.

The emerging set of challenges is here

Framing the third event challenges

This third event will now shift gears and move from understanding the challenges to developing tangible solutions that can be taken forward. We will be looking to generate practical ideas that use the existing assets, spaces, organisations, communities and energy within London to bring about change.

As before this third event is open to professionals and patients. We are also now keen to invite people with different perspectives and skills to help with developing solutions.

1. larger London-based organisations and employers

2. people affected by cancer in the creative/service design communities
