A gathering of neighbours from different walks of life, sharing a meal together
It is the perfect opportunity for people living close together (upstairs, downstairs, or just down the corridor) to get together meaningfully. It hopes to foster closer relationships among neighbours.
A Let’s Makan session could be a small and cosy gathering or potluck session among a few neighbours… as long as everyone makan together!
Organising a Let’s Makan session is easy.
And that’s it! You have a Let’s Makan session going.
Find and invite more neighbours if you feel like expanding your session! We have publicity materials such as posters and invitation cards available for your use. Simply visit our website or request it from us.
Here are some useful downloadable resources that will help you plan and publicise your Let’s Makan session, whether big or small.
Let’s Makan Leaflet
A quick guide to help you plan a session of any scale.
A more comprehensive planning guide, highly recommended for those organising large-scale sessions.
A poster template you can pin up around the neighbourhood. It is meant to help raise awareness of your upcoming session. Simply print as many copies as you need and write the essential event details (e.g. date, time, venue and theme) in the white space at the bottom.
Use these to personally invite guests. Download, print, and write your event details in the yellow banner and more specific information in the white space below, such as instructions on what to bring, dress code (if any) and so on. You may give these out personally or drop them in your neighbours’ letterboxes.
We’re always looking for stories to inspire our materials and to help encourage more people to get involved. If you want to shout about your event, please get in touch via email, social media, snail-mail, or using the form below.
