Pay it Forward Project Launch

Pay it Forward - go out do something wonderful and expect nothing back

To mark International Pay It Forward Day on 28 April 2011, a collective of Bristol based arts organisations are joining forces and hosting a week of free activities, to encourage participants to pay the good deed forward.

The expression "pay it forward" - inspiring a novel, a social movement and a film - is used to describe the concept of asking that a good turn be repaid by having it done to others instead, essentially giving forward instead of back.

Trinity Community Arts, The Love of It and Let’s Do Nice Things are organising a programme of free arts and community activities. From 23-30 April, activities will include a free family indoor picnic, workshops and more.

We are also keen to facilitate activities led by local people and groups so please get in touch if you would like to run an activity of your own in this week. Other groups and businesses are invited to join in and provide their own free fun - anyone can submit what they are doing to be included in our Pay It Forward programme and promotional material.

Individuals attending events during the week will be encouraged to pay the good deed forward.

From random acts of kindness and guerrilla gardening, to running a group activity or volunteering - a range of ideas to inspire individuals, schools and groups will be made available online as a resource pack available for download.
