School of Activism

3 – 22 April 2019

This Easter, the Peoples Republic of Stokes Croft invites everyone to a programme of workshops, events and activities designed to empower and inspire. From making a zine to building with eco-bricks; creating a photo story to planning a flash mob, the School of Activism will help you develop the tools to change the world.

Activists, broadcasters, journalists and comedians, photographers, campaigners and street artists will be sharing their secrets at the School of Activism. PRSC has teamed up with Extinction Rebellion, ReSpace Projects, Bricking-It Bristol and the Bristol Learning Co-op to create a programme of activities for all ages from 8 to 98.

Since 2007, the People’s Republic of Stokes Croft – PRSC – has worked tirelessly to promote civil liberty with a particular focus on public space. Sweeping, painting and speaking out are part of their resistance to zealous overregulation of independent initiative. Their lead has arguably encouraged others to do the same and, as a result, Stokes Croft remains a hub of confident and creative dissent.
