Paper Airplanes are taking flight once again. This time they’re sending out the message “Knowledge is Power” at Islington’s local Cally Festival along Caledonian Road!
Cally Festival marks the area’s diversity, culture and trade. Local businesses and organisations will be celebrating together whilst exhibiting their different trades.
This year we will be having our very own “Knowledge is Power” wishtree at our stall funded by City’s Future Fund. Visitors can speak to us about their ambitions and things they wish to learn from flying a kite to learning a language. They can then decorate their own wishtag, writing on it their wishes which will be added to the tree. The wishtree is limitless and has no boundaries on learning – reflecting how our ambitions for learning should be: never-ending.
Once we have collected lots of wishes on the tree we will take a look at them and offer advice for each wish on our blog page which visitors can take a look at. We want to provide a little guidance and direction to motivate people to believe they can achieve and learn anything.
The link to the website will be given on paper airplanes for them to take away and remember why we should continue to strive and learn. As Mahatma Gandhi said: “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”
If you want to be part of the latest paper airplane project and help recognise and push people’s inner ambitions contact: email@example.com
We’re looking for people to assist in setting up the tree, talk to community and capture the day through camera and video.
Cally Festival has proven to be a lively event with a great atmosphere and we’d love for as many people to part of this rewarding project so get in touch!
