Declarers’ Breakfasts

A regular series of delicious and nutritious online events. Each breakfast has a different focus, and everyone is warmly welcomed.

Our friendly Breakfast gatherings run from 9-10.30 am (UK time), on the last Wednesday of every other month, via zoom. The last half hour is left free for unplanned discussion and connection, with a breakout space provided to introduce new Declarers to our network. They are an informal space for individual Declarers and representatives of Declarer Organisations to meet, network, learn and inspire – come along and help make our collective, creative voice even louder! See what we have coming up below.

Please get in touch with our Declarer Support team with any ideas for fantastic projects that we might focus on, during 2023’s Breakfasts – or if you would like to share some of your practice at any of the sessions. You can email Laura at:

Next Breakfast: Wednesday 29th November 2023
, 9-10.30am GMT

Tell Truths Through Art and Education


Our November breakfast will be focussed on the Pathway to Action: Tell Truths, and how we can achieve this through Art and Education.

Creative education programmes can help to nurture forgiveness, by enabling truth-telling and dialogue between people with different experiences. This educational work needs to be designed to develop people’s ecological capacities, in multiple ways.

We are delighted to be joined by Deborah Curtis from The Great Imagining

Writer and illustrator Deborah Curtis is the founder and creative director of young person’s arts charity The House of Fairy Tales. She has spent the last 25 years devising and producing creative learning adventures for children, young people and their communities, and for the last 5 years has been developing the ideas and philosophy underpinning The Great Imagining: a future literacy platform for people and communities of all ages, experiences and abilities to imagine and take action towards a greener, fairer, wiser future. During this phase of research and development, she has been active in the facilitation of coalitions such as Culture Declares Emergency and Our Shared World as well as other activist networks. 

How to take part
