Tuesday 23 October: 6heads and Hackney Tours
Down to Dagenham Dock – Sustainability made real
This is our 3rd collaboration with Simon Cole of Hackney Tours, where we take to the streets of london for an exploration of the unlikely systems, people and places that bring our city to life.
Meet 6.30-6.45pm Liberty Bounds pub, Tower Hill. We’ll leave the pub at 7pm – to head East. We’ll be be back in the London by 9.30pm.
Sustainability can sometimes seem an abstract issue. After launching the Container Cult project, Simon Cole (Hackney Tours) started to explore the often-ignored Thames Estuary – and realised this obscure part of the capital is the capital’s life support system. The scale of the systems we take for granted was revealed and he found a trail that led from the back streets of East London to the other side of the world.
Perhaps if we can see for ourselves where everything goes and how things connect, we can better appreciate the challenge – and better articulate it to others? Come and be immersed in the fundamentals of our modern life. Hear what goes unseen on the edge of cities, from import to export, emissions to excrement.
Wendesday 21 November: 6heads 7th Birthday
The Children’s Fire – In discussion with Mac Macartney – Author, speaker, change-maker and founder of Embercombe
To celebrate 6heads 7th Birthday we are delighted to welcome Mac Macartney as he shares readings from his new book, The Children’s Fire, and leads us through discussion and exploration of our own journeys and the future we long for.
Wednesday 21 November – 6.30 – 9.30pm – central London venue TBC
Mac is an international speaker, writer and change-maker. He is the founder of Embercombe, a social enterprise dedicated to deepening our connection with nature and inspiring people from all walks of life to bravely contribute towards a world that works
The Children’s Fire forges a trail into Britain’s wild and ancient Celtic past. It is a passionate evocation of a generous, inclusive, diverse and spiritually significant world – the world of our longing. It asserts the emergence of a new story; the story of a people coming home to a truth made all the more precious having so painfully broken faith with nature, our deeper humanity, and the paradise we have fouled with such casual disregard. It seeks to reclaim our future and name it beautiful.
The Children’s Fire comes out on the 31st October. You can pre-order your copy here or it will be available on the 21 November
