What Is Your Activism?July 8, 2015

WEB What Is Your Activism? Flyer

Coming up this July, we’re collaborating with Bad Mouth on a series of workshops discussing activism and personal politics.

Over the course of five workshops, participants will discuss their ideas of what activism is, what kind of activism they are personally involved / interested in and what their personal politics are – whether it’s simply buying organic food as and when they can or chaining themselves to railings at protests every weekend!

The sessions will involve group discussion, talks from guest activists and artists, arts and crafts workshops, a trip to a radical political zine archive and research into local political history, amongst other things.

As a group we will be thinking about collective work and action and what we can learn from each other.

There will be an introductory session on Wednesday 15th July; where we will discuss the issues that are most important to us. We will then programme the following sessions based on the interests of the group.

If you would like to attend, please drop lydia@theboileroom.net an email. If possible, please include some information on why you are interested in attending, and your particular areas of interest within activism.

Spaces are limited so please book in early to avoid missing out!
