A creative workshop from award-winning author and comic Pete “the Temp” Bearder
How can we communicate heavy issues in a way that brings people in? This workshop is for writers of all abilities and genres who want to develop ninja skills to enchant, provoke and persuade.
Pete (the Temp) Bearder is a spoken word poet, comic and musician whose work has been featured on BBC Radio 4, The World Service and Newsnight. He is the former National Poetry Slam Champion and has performed around the world with organisations such as The British Council. His first collection ‘Numbered Boxes’ was published by Burning Eye Books in 2017, and in 2018 he was awarded The Golden Hammer Award for services to spoken word. This year he released a new book about performance poetics with Out-Spoken Press: ‘Stage Invasion: Poetry, Renewal and the Spoken Word Renaissance’.

The School of Activism 2.0 is a two week programme of workshops, talks and activities brought to you by Peoples Republic of Stokes Croft over the Easter holidays. The workshops are intended to be empowering experiences equipping people with the tools to challenge the status quo, contest power structures and ultimately to change the world.
We learn by doing.
We make our own future.
School of Chativism
If you're feeling hyped about all this educating, and you wanna connect with other SoA students to talk about what you've learnt, and/or discuss the future of ethical social media, then this is for you...
"The School of Chativism is an experimental social media space that will run for the duration of the School of Activism 2.0. This is the place to discuss and share events at SOA2. But it's also a space for questioning what social media currently is, and what it could be, for activists and activism. We can remake it as we go, transform it throughout SOA2.“
