When: Sat 27th Feb - all day
Where: Online – book via Eventbrite
Homebaked CLT is pleased to be contributing four events to the Breaking Ground Festival on Saturday 27th February. Each event is rooted in the values at the heart of our terrace and community, discussing the right to housing, the future of our high streets, sustainability in practice and our creative DNA. National and international friends join us to share their stories to inspire and explore the possible for Anfield, Everton & beyond.
The neighbourhood as incubator
With stories from Liverpool, Oslo and Plymouth we’re looking at the neighbourhood as places of encounter and empowerment and asking what ownership means, and how we might build our own economies to best serve our community.
In this session we will hear about citizens taking matters into their own hands regarding the right to housing and how these kind of collective struggles can create momentum for local people to shape and govern their places in more equitable and democratic ways.
Local responses to climate change
In this session we’ll explore some of the challenges facing neighbourhoods in the context of climate change – not abstract notions of things happening in far off lands and seas, but impacts that can be felt here and now, and how the shift to ‘zero carbon’ might affect our lives . We’ll discuss how we might respond to these challenges at a range of scales – through changes to the physical infrastructure of our buildings and streets, and the role of communities in shaping these practices and building resilience.
Arts as DNA
The session is rooted in a long standing practice of using the arts in the process of imagining and manifesting more just, equitable and caring neighbourhoods. This work weaves through the development of Homebaked and many other durational practices that sustain communities who fight for the right to live well.
