Together We Act: A Cultural Assembly with the Southbank Centre

Sunday 3rd September, 2pm at the Royal Festival Hall, London

Save the date: The Southbank Centre is Declaring a Climate Emergency, and we’re collaborating with them this September to hold a Cultural Assembly to mark the announcement!

The Clore Ballroom in the Royal Festival Hall, London, will be transformed into a town hall for conversation and community-building, spurring action and change. Everyone is invited to join this day filled with creative inspiration from guest speakers, live music and readings of Letters to the Earth. The day will also include provocations from Clare Farrell (co-founder of Extinction Rebellion), Moussa Amine Sylla (Cost of Living Alliance), Clara Paillard (Unite the Union), Ashish Ghadiali (Radical Ecology) and others.

Cultural Assemblies draw inspiration from People’s Assemblies. It’s a space where all voices are invited to participate in making a change: your voice is needed!

The event is part of The Southbank Centre’s Planet Summer focussing on care, hope, connection and activism in a season of talks, performances, music and family events responding to the climate emergency, and Culture Declares are delighted to support in bringing a Cultural Assembly to this programme.

These times of Earth crisis require us all to be artists. So whether you’re a cultural worker or a lover of the arts, everyone is invited to bring their radical imagination and ideas, to meet with others and explore the future we want to create!

It’s free to attend and no registration needed. For details on how to get there, head over to the listing on The Southbank Centre’s website here.
