One Year On - Challenges and Opportunities with the Poplar Works Community

10:00 am at Online

After a year of ups and downs, Poplar Works businesses share the lessons they learnt since joining and what 2021 holds in store.

Opening against a backdrop of lockdowns and business in decline during the crisis, Poplar Works has focused its efforts on supporting local fashion, making and creative communities to survive and thrive over the last year.

To celebrate its first birthday, we bring together members from a range of different industries to share the opportunities and challenges they have faced over the last year in a live panel discussion.
