The School of Activism (SOA): 03-18 April 2021 from The People's of Stokes Croft (PRSC)

Due to Covid 19 restrictions this is an on-line event.

An essential three weeks of workshops, events and activities designed to galvanise and empower every age group. In doing so, we can foster our own future – and make it something we’re all proud to be a part of.

PRSC define activism as ‘Active Citizenship’: the process of taking care of - and taking part in - your community. You are not a victim of circumstance, so change it.

The tools of transformation are already in your hands – and The School Of Activism is here to show you how you can start forging a new future. We’ll let you in on a badly kept secret: Activism is a doing word (although strictly speaking, it’s a noun). We can change things, we can make them better. And after all, knowledge is power – so, let’s share it.

Lisa Furness, School of Activism coordinator states the event is “designed to enable the people of Bristol and beyond to gain skills, confidence and practical tools to address the issues that concern them, whether that be campaigning for greater equality or fighting against land injustice”.

Positive change is not created with one-size-fits all solutions, and we have an eclectic mix of artists, activists, academics sharing their secrets to reflect that. Topics are just as varied as our inspiring change-makers: we’re covering everything from policy change, to radical history, housing rights, to art as a tool for transformation. We’re even running a workshop called ‘Philosophy for Kids’.

Regardless of age, background, ethnicity or income everyone can be a change-maker. That’s why we’re donation based, and have a pay-what-you-can model. We’re confirming more activities every day – and will hope to see you in the Easter holidays.

You can book your place on all the sessions through Headfirst Bristol
