Another great week at Wur Bradford, regulars and new visitors coming to the stall to get creative and chat. This week many people responded to these fantastic screenprinted posters by Newcastle artist and activist Theresa Easton which invite people to leave messages for our politicians.<
The posters prompted lots of conversation – people sharing personal stories of how they were bring affected by the government cuts and austerity measures, and talking about ways we might be able to get through the next five years. There was as a fair bit of laughing and fun too.
By making and talking together, maybe we can find ways to resist, survive, befriend and support each other through austerity which is affecting so many of us.
We would love for more people to get involved in doing things in the space – to help grow these connections between people in Bradford, make us stronger together?
So.. Do you have knowledge or a skill you want to share with others? Do you have an activity you want to try out, a campaign you want to run, or an event you’d like to put on? Do you need a place to meet? The Wur market stall is a great public space in Kirkgate Market to create, share, meet and talk. Get in touch if you would have an idea for something you’d like to do in the space – you can comment below, get in touch on our facebook page, email at email@example.com, or pop down and see us – open Tuesdays and Thursdays 10am – 4pm.
