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.

Sewing Café Lancaster

Run by Victoria Frausin, Sewing Café Lancaster is a grassroots project that advocates for an ethical textile industry and sustainable textile practices. We draw on ideas of conviviality in actualizing “the eight ‘Rs’” – revalue, reconceptualize, restructure, relocate, redistribute, reduce, reuse and recycle in relation to clothes and textile production and consumption.

Shieldfield Art Works

Shieldfield Art Works (or ‘SAW’) is an arts organisation based in Shieldfield, Newcastle upon Tyne. SAW is an artist-led organisation committed to creativity, theological critique and community engagement. Through making art, growing, cooking, discussion and learning, we seek positive change for the welfare of the city, in order to seek out ways of supporting and enabling social transformation.

Sounding The Voices

Sounding The Voices scores collaborative exchanges between six women with lived experience of challenging histories. How might we ‘sound’ the space between our pasts and presents, personally and collectively, to shape futures resisting complacency and despair, and in doing so, offering a ‘being, otherwise’?

St Werburghs City Farm

The local and global picture has vastly changed since the Farm emerged in 1980. We need to radically rethink how we engage with our communities, with the land and with our food whilst addressing the Climate Emergency; the importance of equitable access and connection to nature; and dismantling the barriers to engagement faced by people that experience racism. Ultimately, we wish to redefine our vision so that it is fit for a future we want to be part of; an inclusive, accessible and regenerative urban agricultural space.

Street Goat

Street Goat’s mission is to develop a network of small community projects in which local people collectively manage and care for livestock in urban areas, to produce milk and meat. We aim to increase access to sustainable and healthy animal food products reared locally on overgrown and unusable urban land.

Talia Randall

Raised on a London council estate, Talia Randall began her artistic career began as a ‘participant’ in various community schemes. She’s now a writer-performer who has been building a growing following with her variety shows, one-woman plays and podcasts.

The Birch Collective

We are a new collective formed in response to the current context. We developed ‘Nature Connection Tools for Resilience;’ an online course for 18-25 yr olds which will run alongside Rites of Passage camps. Both explore ways young people can deepen their relationship to the natural world, themselves and each other and so begin a journey of inspired and engaged adulthood.
