After a short break, we are delighted to be back in our stall in Kirkgate Market this week to begin a new Season of Change – events, activities and workshops exploring the changes we want to see locally and globally and and how we can work together creatively to try to make these happen.
We have a few things planned, which include our Bradford Slideshow event on Saturday 9th April looking at images of Bradford past and present( and thinking about what the future could be).
We will also be running some more food growing and foraging based activities with our friends The Plot and Grow Bradford, who we worked with in January, to develop our community map of places in Bradford for abundant wild food and recipes.
We are also plotting the start up of a regular Wur Bradford zine which will be a collective self-published pamphlet featuring a mix of writing and images, interviews, reviews and recipes by Bradford people. We are lucky enough to have a photocopier in the space thanks our friends at HowDo? so it will be made and copied in-house.
As always, what we do is responsive to what people bring to Wur Bradford space, and we are always keen support new ideas and activities – so if you have an idea for an event, a workshop, a discussion, a campaign, or a project you would like to try out, or to see happen in the stall, that relates to the theme of change in some way, then we would love to hear from you.
Come along this Thursday 7th April any time between 12 and 3pm to have a chat to see what we are about and/or get involved, and a have free coffee on us from our lovely friends at Home From Home cafe who are at the stall opposite us.
On Thursday from 1-2pm we will also be hosting a discussion and game with local activist Lily McTaggart on the theme of Trident and it’s planned renewal
“What would YOU spend £100 billion of public money on? Come along and discuss the options, how and why you would make the decision in light of the upcoming question of Trident renewal.”
We look forward to seeing you then!
If you want to get involved by can’t make it down, you can email us at Wurbradford@gmail.com.
All at Wur Bradford
