Out of the Mess

Friday 28th September 2018
7.30pm - 9pm

Angry about food banks, injustice and tax evasion?
In despair about plastic in the seas, species loss and (the elephant in the room) climate change?
Join Caro Wilkinson for some brainstorming on Friday 28th September from 7.30pm – 9pm.

Time to stop averting our eyes? It’s just possible that TOGETHER we can begin to turn the tide.

Reference works:
“Active Hope” by Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone
“Out of the Wreckage” by George Monbiot

No need to read these beforehand as there will be handouts

Also take a look on Youtube at Bill McKibben speaking in Concord, USA in January 2018 (he was the founder in 2009 of 350.org)

 

For more information please text Caro on 07743 687883. Caro Wilkinson is a longtime environmentalist.

    Over the course of 2021 Out of the Blue will continue to offer opportunities for artists and members of the community to learn, participate and earn income.

    We use the space we have developed in 6 buildings in Edinburgh for studios, workshops, classes, projects, exhibitions, social enterprises, events, clubs, music making, markets, a cafe and more.

    Our all year round activity helps create the culture of the city, supporting the local economy and having positive social impact for the thousands of individuals and organisations we work with.

    We would humbly accept a financial donation, however small, in support of our work.
