I’m organising and contributing an imagination station to this.

This lively workshop – or creative assembly – led by artists invites people from across the social, environmental and cultural sectors to generate ideas for how we can learn, work, eat and be well in the future. Bringing the key principle of Doughnut Economics – building a social foundation for everyone in ways that don’t harm the environment – there will be five imagination stations each led by a local artist or creative organisation. Participants can rotate around them to reimagine…

  • How we can learn and develop capacities for resilience when younger people are anxious about the future of the planet
  • How we can create opportunities for work and revive our high streets when environmental conditions and inequalities affect the economy
  • How we can source, produce and consume food, with rising food insecurity
  • How we can improve physical and mental health outcomes, in an uncertain climate and polluted environment?
  • And a space for creative expression and to voice the power of arts for change.

We will then pool all the ideas – including for other sectors – into a future Doughnut portrait of Norwich.

Arts groups include Climate Museum UK, Hocus Pocus Theatre, SYSTA and Edible East. A collaboration between Culture Declares East with Norwich Doughnut Group.

Generously hosted by Norwich Theatre Stage Two (in Studio One, which is an accessible venue)
This is one of several assemblies around the UK celebrating Culture Declares’ 5 years of existence.
