Notes from the New Declarer Breakfast: 30/3/2022

Culture Declares Emergency South West launches on the Bristol Harbourside, 2020 (Gaby Solly)

Thank you so much for joining us for this Breakfast. We hope you found it a useful and friendly introduction to Culture Declares. The details we all shared with each other about our practice etc. are at the bottom of the page.

The next Breakfast is an All Declarer Breakfast at the end of May – there will be more details shared about it soon on the website/newsletter/SM so please keep your eyes peeled.

By updating our Declarations we can now share more about our Declarer journeys, our practice and regional location, to enable better collaborative opportunities within the movement. You should be able to create a login in and update details by searching for your existing profile on the website – there are instructions at the bottom of your profile page and in FAQs, these should answer all your questions – but email if you are still experiencing problems.

Associated projects that are ongoing and have open invitations to get involved include:

  • Letters to the Earth – a participative project that resonates with our grief, love and hope at this time.
  • Paint the Land – a project initiated by Writers Rebel connecting writers with artists to create words in the landscape that highlight the CEE such as On The Shore.

  • Emerging multi-disciplinary artist in Bristol, and on the Declarer Support working group.
  • I am also working with other Declarers in the South West to start seeding small hubs around the region – please check out our FB page and email if you’d like to join the mailing list.  I’d love to help make something happen here in Bristol but am clear that it needs to start from an authentically diverse base if we are to find and employ our true creative power.
