School of Activism

Enabling Active Citizenship
with workshops, events and activities

The School of Activism is a series of affordable workshops, events, exhibitions and talks designed to empower and galvanise people to make positive change in their local communities, and in the wider world.

We define activism as active citizenship; at the School of Activism special guests will run affordable sessions covering all our favourite topics of art, activism, community, music making, history, protest, spoken word and more.

School of Activism coordinator Lisa Furness explains: “The School of Activism celebrates the creative power that we have as citizens to influence and change our society. Bristol is a city filled with inspirational change-makers and activists, and the SOA offers a platform to share their stories of battles won and techniques developed.”

While the School of Activism is now occasional events spread out through the year, we’ve previously run it as a two week long syllabus over the Easter holidays. Check out what we got up to…

This project is founded on the ethos of community inclusion and empowerment, so we offer pay-what-you-can solidarity pricing with no-one turned away through lack of funds. Your donation makes it possible for us keep the School of Activism affordable to all!
We are open to co-hosting events or workshops that fit the remit for the School of Activism! We’d love to hear what you wanna do, and when – email email hidden; JavaScript is required with your ideas and we’ll go from there.
