The Peckham Truth Booth is proud to present 'one day : Day One - Resilience // Peckham'.
One day our world will change. Our cities, communities, our organisations and the people we know and love will all be affected by changes to the climate, to business, the economy, technology and society. How can we be more resilient and bounce back quickly from these coming shocks and stresses to our day-to-day lives?
What if today were Day One? What if we could see what the future has in store for us, and learn to bounce back more effectively? How might we act if that future were now? How can we share this resilient-thinking around the world, and learn from each other’s ways of bouncing back to our best?
one day : Day One - Resilience asks these questions by looking at particular resilience challenges faced by different cities, and finds a way to connect and showcase the work being done by individual and organisations to face those challenges. The project creates feedback loops of resilient-thinking - online, at events, and in public spaces - to empower people and organisations to become resilience strategists, for themselves and for the global community.
one day : Day One - Resilience has been created by Sara Zaltash in partnership with the Schumacher Institute in Bristol, UK. The project is currently supported by the 100 Resilient Cities Network, Quartet Community Foundation, Bristol Green Capital Partnership, Bristol City Council, Knowle West Media Centre and the Festival of Ideas.
Throughout this summer across Southwark Adam James in association with MOCA London, The NINES Peckham, Sustrans and Peckham Vision will host a number of artist led events including artist talks, workshops, participatory performances, walks, float-making, Nordic Larps and story-telling exploring themes relating to 'truth' and group engagement as means to unleash collective unconscious. This event is supported through Arts Council England grants for the arts.
