Discussion and drawing/collage social focused around positive change in the world.

Come along to an informal chance to hear about direct change and chat with a speaker invited to come and share their stories of steps towards change in a very relaxed round table setting.

This discussion will be followed by a chance to experiment with making collage/drawn posters, zines and leaflets focused around instigating positive changes in the world. which we will reproduce on our risograph printer for you to take away into the world and influence people.

Helen Redfern is co-founder of Green Heart Collective, a fresh social enterprise on a mission to reduce waste to landfill by selling preloved clothing, yoga equipment, books and other items online and in their showcase in Team Valley, Gateshead. With a passion for people and planet, Helen is also a committed climate activist in the region with many stories to share of protests, rebellion, roadblocks and much more.

Would anybody reading this like to come and talk about their own experiences of working towards changing the world for better?
