Speed Friending


Team member: Ashley Kwon

Speed Friending is a project to plan three inclusive community events to provide a platform for community members to interact with one another, and make friends. Participants will complete speed rounds of meeting and connecting with each other through a series of activities and conversations. Speed Friending will create new and interesting connections between individuals for the purpose of addressing social isolation, and improving intergenerational connection in the Central City area of Surrey.
