Life before Death: A Feast for the Common Dead
Join Molly Conisbee and Ruth Potts of bread, print & roses and special guests Rupert and Claire Callender of the Green Funeral Company for supper as we explore changing cultural attitudes to death, the rituals (or lack of) that surround it and why transforming our attitude to death might not only be the key to a good life, but a healthy economy too.
Walking with Death
Join us for a stroll through Totnes’ darkest places as we uncover how attitudes to death have changed, and how learning to die well might be the key to a good life and a healthy local economy.
From industry to arcadia: walking, talking and edible activism
Join us for a journey through the backstreets of Bath; exploring the city’s varied history, and the mutual and co-operative enterprises that have thrived in its margins. From the age of Industrial Bath we will explore the divided history of the city and uncover the dynamic range of innovative projects flourishing in Bath today. As we walk, and over supper we will ask: what lessons can we take from the past that could accelerate ecological and social revival today?
6pm – 9pm, Friday 13th September 2013;
Ending with a pop-up radical supper in City Farm’s newly restored barn
Reserve your place - £15 covers the cost of the walk, talk and supper.
Walkers are ‘practitioners of the city,’ for the city is made to be walked. A city is a language, a repository of possibilities, and walking is the act of speaking that language, of selecting from those possibilities.
A Walk Through Bristol’s Future: book a place on our walk
As part of Bristol’s Green Week, we’re leading a walk through the city’s radical past, exploring what lies beneath our streets, and what inspiration we might find for a more sustainable, equitable and vibrant future.
We are often told that there is no alternative. The reality is both very different and much more interesting. One way of organising society may dominate, but on the margins and in the liminal spaces the sleeping architecture of a vibrant, diverse and more equitable new world already exists and is constantly evolving.
All over Bristol, and throughout history, people have refused to accept the world as it is and have carved out communities, spaces and practices that enable people to flourish. Join us for an inspirational journey through the hidden, the spaces in between, and the potential for all our futures.
The walk is free, but numbers are limited. Sign up here, to reserve your place.
