When: Saturday 21 September, 1pm – 6pm (lunch from 1-1:30pm)

Where: The Gallery Space, The Island, Bridewell Street, 1st Floor, Bristol, BS1 2LE

Bristol has a rich history of creative campaigning and protest. We are very excited to be returning to the city and to build upon the work we’ve done in the past on food sovereignty and local campaigning.

Over the course of the afternoon you will meet fellow campaigners to discuss activism in Bristol, as well as how to get involved with WDM’s current campaigns around food sovereignty and speculation, facilitated by members of WDM’s activism team, Sarah Reader and Ralph Allen.

We will also be screening a short film, Best Before, which explores issues around the global food system and local, urban action to combat them, as well as a short interview with Shalmali Guttal of Focus on the Global South, which was filmed by WDM at this year’s World Social Forum in Tunisia.

The event is free and you can register your interest at activism@wdm.org.uk or call 0207 820 4900. There will be refreshments from 1pm and we’ll be starting by half past. We have hired The Gallery Space in Broadmead, which is flooded with natural light and will provide an interesting arena for debate.
