Groundswell

Groundswell is undertaking research to understand the impacts of COVID-19 on the lives of people experiencing homelessness. The project aims to understand how COVID-19 and the response to it is affecting the lives of people who are homeless and include the voices of people experiencing homelessness in the national and local decision-making processes.

Impact Hub Bradford

At the heart of Impact Hub Bradford is a platform for social experimentation, our “Civic Collaboratory”; an organisational form that encompasses social processes, collaboration, co-design, formal and informal communication and consensus on principles and values. As both learners and facilitators at the intersection of various key sectors – public, private, voluntary, academic, entrepreneurial, NGOs and academia – the collaboratory is a hub that convenes and creates dialogue across unconnected disciplines.

Jo Chalkblack

As a social-practice artist, Jo Chalkblack initiates processes of authentic connection in every day places (schools, urban green spaces, graveyards, city through-routes). Whilst also using site specific, temporary processes to connect with hinterland spaces (woodland, wild spaces, vacant buildings) to enable individuals and communities to navigate through ‘crossroads of change’ and to mark that transition together. She approaches her work collaboratively; moving away from human-centric ideas of what this means and understanding how dynamics of power, language and history affect people’s choices and ability to engage together in moments change.

Lockdown Gardening

During the recent Covid 19 crisis, small community growing groups in Northern Ireland diversified their activities, providing food delivery to the vulnerable and isolated, checking in on neighbours through phone-round schemes, and later on in lockdown encouraging their neighbours to grow at home, so that fresh food is still being provided locally.

May Project Gardens

May Project Gardens is an award-winning CIC, working across South London to address poverty, disempowerment, access to resources and influence. We work with marginalised groups, mostly young people, people of colour and refugees, using what we consider universally connecting tools – nature, food and creative arts – for social change.

Radical Herbalism Gathering & Network

As a collective of medical herbalists, healthcare activists, bodyworkers and designers we have organised Radical Herbalism gatherings for the past eight years. We’re currently offering information and resources through our website, addressing the COVID-19 crisis through the lens of healthcare inequality and race-based and other injustices, with solidarity and support for people and communities experiencing the pandemic and its effects disproportionately.

RADMIN

The project and concept of RADMIN emerged out of an email conversation about
laminating at Bristol’s Cube Cinema. It has since taken on a life of its own.
Its radical yet delicate proposal is to reconsider administration not just as an infernal condition of life but also a site for action and intervention, dark
arts, wild experiments and meaningful work.
