We had some great acts again last night at the Open Mic night… which went well despite being Mic-less at the start! Today at the Cafe you can find out more about squatting (as in occupying empty buildings) in our practical squatting workshop, and we also have the autonomous learning zone and a workshop on sustainable food systems;
1-5pm Autonomous Learning Zone – a new radical learning project
Come along to explore different ways of learning together….. The autonomous learning zone is about bringing people together to create a space for informal learning, and to allow projects and ideas to grow faster. At the start of each session everyone who comes decides what we are going to do that day, and you can also just along and do your own thing if you like getting on with your work / project / knitting with other people around.. Examples of what we have done previously include: researching the changes in squatting law, vegan Danish pastries, film production, bike maintenance… We decide what we want to learn, then we do it! Simple… come join!
5-6pm Revolutionising the food system – practical steps to create a more sustainable food system in Greater Manchester
Kindling group will show their sustainable food film (10 mins) then a presentation of the projects they’re working on in Greater Manchester (with some nice photos) that people can get involved (Land Army, Big Dig, feedingmanchester, Manchester Veg People) & time for questions and thoughts.
8:30-10pm Practical Squatting workshop
The ins and outs of squatting, how it works practically & legally including update on the recent changes in the law. Come along to learn, share experiences of squatting, meet others interested in squatting & learn practical skills that will help you do it!
