Wed 10 June 7pm: Mapping Real Treasure at The Art House. How can maps highlight hidden gems, strengthen communities and encourage social change? We will hear examples from within our own community and so please contact us in advance if you are involved in creating beautiful or useful maps. This is a joint event with Maptime Southampton. More details here.
LiberTea @ Southampton’ Speakers Corner on Sunday 14 June at 3pm in Hoglands Park opposite Debenhams
It is the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta, so we are having an afternoon sharing picnic as part of the national LiberTea events. www.liberteas.co.uk
This is a very informal event where we can gather together, share food, celebrate, debate and reflect upon our freedom and rights. Attendees are encouraged to bring food to share, plus perhaps a poem or a football, a craft activity or an idea to talk about. This is not organised as such – it will be a mish mash of whatever people choose to contribute on the day.
Everybody welcome – just turn up. This will be a family friendly event.
Other events that may interest you are shared via Facebook and Twitter, including October Books’ walk and talk with architectural critic Owen Hatherley on 6 June at 5.45pm, and a series of events over the weekend of 13/14 June including the screening of Bikes vs Cars at The Art House (Friday 12th), and the Ethical Film Club’s screening of Bag It in Brockenhurst (Saturday 13th).
Wed 17 June: Mass climate change lobby in Westminster We’ve been working with Transition Southampton holding ‘Climate Cafe Conversations’ as part of the Speak Up for the Love of… campaign. We are collecting feedback from people about climate change issues, which we can then take to Southampton MPs as part of the 17 June mass lobby in Westminster. We are also hoping to have other climate conversations at other community events and encourage others to do so too. You can join this conversation online through this Facebook event page. Or email us your thoughts and we’ll add them to our collaborative book.
