The Spark is a month of free workshops, discussion, art, music and more on building positive change in our lives and the world around us.
Are you unhappy with your housing situation?… How does the criminal justice system effect you?…What educational alternatives are out there? How will we eat and procure food in the future? Who is resisting corporate and political power? Is it working? How could we build safe, caring, communities? Where can you express yourself fully?
So many questions but together we have the answers!
The Spark is a series of community-based creative, informative, practical and exploratory workshops and activities. The Spark 2016 ran over June, July and August, see the programme here>>
We’re just beginning to make plans for what the next steps are for the Spark.
All events are wheelchair accessible, and kids space is available.
Who are we? The Spark organising group is made up of individuals involved in a range of social-justice groups. It is supported by the Economic Justice Project.
The Spark hosts poetry, arts, music, performance and more. And, if you’re an aspiring poet, musician or artist, there’s plenty of opportunities to learn how.
- The Spark aims to bring people together who care about social justice, but wouldn’t normally meet each other to share ideas, stories and tactics for social justice, to imagine the world differently, to discuss key issues, differences and opportunities, and to build new friendships and networks.
- It will offer space for activities that cover ideas, action, practical and creative skills for social justice and we will also try to offer flexible space for your meetings and workshops.
- It will aim to be a fun, nourishing experience.
- We will aim for the Spark to take a decolonial and intersectional approach. Don’t know what these words mean yet? No problem, see below for more on intersectionality, or come along to a workshop at the Spark…
