Happy New Year from the Heads!
We hope you have all had a wonderful break and are feeling refreshed and ready for 2016. We are rested and very excited for the year ahead.
Thank you so much for being part of our community and having made 2015 such a special year.
Here are some of our highlights…
We opened the doors and asked our community what they wanted from us in 2015…
The chance to put your hand up then get it dirty
Then we asked them to get involved too…
We joined our brilliant friend Jo Hunter in her #wearebrilliant campaign and had lots of brilliant faces join us for some much needed self celebration
Earth Hour candlelit dinner at Fairly Square
We tried to host the perfect sustainable dinner party right down to the organic beeswax candles, fairtrade furniture, food and wine. We celebrated earth hour by pledging to do something differently, story telling and a good old fashioned singalong.
We joined a fashion revolution at the Clotho Fashion Hackathon
We joined forces with East London’s hacking community to explore apps to encourage people to vote.

Summer Steps to Sustainability & Poetry of change – Saturday 20th June 2015

James has three wonderful walks lined up for us in 2016 so watch this space!
Our Poetry to Inspire Change Series
Pronoia City Lights and Summer Nights celebration. A magical party led by Tiu De Haan embracing the unknown, making friends with nature and realising that coincidences and serendipity are always on our side, we just need to look at things differently.
August is our favourite time of year… time for exploration into leadership on the flying trapeze. Hup and away…

Revisiting the past and casting our gaze into the future, a company of acrobats, dancers, storytellers, poets, magicians and musicians reimagine stories from Greek mythology to illustrate how we have been struggling with the question of how to live in harmony for as long as we have had minds to think and hearts to grieve.
