MakeBelieve Arts is always looking for opportunities to work with young entrepreneurs, so when Enterprise Day came calling, we jumped at the chance be part of it!
In March, Christ the King Sixth Form College and South East London Enterprise Learning Partnership played host to 300 primary and secondary school children from Lewisham, Greenwich, Bexley and Bromley.
Knowing that these budding business movers-and-shakers would keep us on our toes, MakeBelieve Arts devised a Social Enterprise Scavenger Hunt based around the tiers of social enterprise: People, Planet and Profit. Each clue led the young entrepreneurs to the booths of different businesses participating on the day, including Costains, Urbantopia books, the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, and Young Enterprise, just to name a few.
The event was topped off by MakeBelieve Arts leading a percussion activity with the participants present on the days from schools such as St Joseph's RC Primary, All Saints CE Primary, and Myatt Garden Primary. Imagine the roar and rumble of over 300 voices, hands, and feet sounding out for Social Enterprise: People, Planet, Profit. It was an innovative end to an enterprising day.
If this is anything to go by, we've got a lot to be excited about. The business leaders and social enterprise innovators of the future are off to a great start!
