School of Activism 2.0
We have decided to postpone the School of Activism – due to start April 3rd.
This decision has not been taken lightly, but feels pretty unavoidable in the face of the public health crisis created by Covid19.
Over the next couple of months, we will be making the venue and our resources available to charities or community groups that are dealing with this immediate crisis (eg. providing space for donations to be sorted, or care packages to be distributed) so please get in touch if you need space for such activities.
We define activism as ‘Active Citizenship’.
The process of taking care of and taking part in your community.
Don’t be a victim of circumstances.
PRSC invites you to SoA 2.0 this Easter, starting with the People’s Comedy Friday April 3rd and continuing until Sunday April 19.
The People’s Republic of Stokes Croft invites everyone to a programme of workshops, events and activities designed to empower and inspire. From radical history to cutting stencils, the School of Activism will help you develop tools to change the world.
Activists, influencers, and academics, photographers, poets and painters, campaigners, performers and street artists have come together to share their secrets at the School of Activism.
Topics covered will include social media, radical history, subvertising, technological change, fact checking, labour struggles, poetry, rewilding the city, art for social change and anything and everything else we can think of.
All of the activities are free or low cost and most of them will be aimed at families, or suitable for all ages.
If you want to be involved in this project, please give us a shout!
We try to ensure all activites are as affordable as possible, but we can only do this with your support – please consider making a donation to the School of Activism.
The sessions will also include:
- Rewilding the city: A Practical Session on Seed Bombs and Bird Boxes by PRSC
- Social Media Influencers, the Good the Bad and the Ugly a talk from Colin Moody and other social media influencers
- Regeneration Activism: a talk by A Word From Nature
- Tech workshop: how to make a mini light projector
- A screening of the 10 minute short – Battling for Bristol
- A discussion on: Who Owns the Land? With the Bristol Community Land Trust
