We are holding Creative Climate Conversations with groups in Lewisham and invite you to chat to us if you’re interested in a workshop
“Thank you for the Creative Climate Conversations workshop last Sunday. We found it inspiring and uplifting. Really appreciate the experiences of a range of ways to catalyse (sometimes difficult) conversations.” Shelagh Doonan
We are a new mobile and digital museum, based in Lewisham, stirring and collecting responses to the Climate and Ecological Emergency. As a team of artists and educators, we make and collect creative activities, games, artworks and books and use these in workshops and pop-up experiences. These activities help people explore how they feel about the changes to the environment, to think about what is causing them, and to imagine ways we might live differently.
We have received funding from Lewisham Local (the Launchpad programme) to offer workshops free of charge for community, youth and school groups in the borough. These can take place in Zoom or in person in your setting, when safe to do so, and could be indoors or outdoors. They last around 2 hours and include talking, making art, using games or activity kits, and discussing ideas for action. Each one is facilitated by two of our team, including Bridget McKenzie, Beckie Leach, Victoria Burns, Lucy Carruthers, Alara Adali and James Aldridge.
We are all experienced educators with creative skills and deep knowledge of environmental issues. We can provide our policies on Equality & Diversity, Health & Safety and Safeguarding, and can share DBS certificates. The sessions are well suited for secondary school and FE groups, youth activist groups, community forums, or climate action and conservation groups.
To chat about a Creative Climate Conversation for your group, to happen some time this year or early in 2021, please get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org
We would also be really grateful for help to spread the word locally. You can download a Word document about this if you would like to share this with any groups you know, or print it out to display.
