We'd like to leave you for now with some words from Nazir Afzal's expert session on 'the Power of One' that resonate with us and what we're all about:

"To make a difference you've got to act differently.  You can't deal with everything alone, resilience comes from your networks, family and friends.

No tick box has ever saved anyone's life, no bureaucracy has ever changed the world for the better.  If you believe in something, go and do it.  It starts with a conversation and it leads to change"

See you all soon!

"It's not Sunderland it's Wonderland" - (Thanking the team in Sunderland for being so welcoming, warm and supportive in making this event happen.)

"Absolutely cracking end to the event with Eddie and John's lush song.  Dead proud to be able to help showcase this amazing local talent.  Bringing music, art from Sunderland in to the powerhouse.  Thanks so much for getting us involved in People's Powerhouse"

"At this moment of crisis, we need to experiment and collaborate like mad, to help the new emerge"

"Brilliant day at People's Powerhouse This is the North event connecting with so many exciting organisations and projects.  Thought provoking and inspiring!"
