Shared Assets will be attending Timber Festival for the first time to talk about land to a new audience. Timber Festival is is a not-for-profit family festival gathering artists, activists and musicians to engage with the natural environment.

We will be holding two workshops, one on land storytelling with poet Chloe Tenesha Giles, and the other on land for reconnection with Rachael Milliner who is a coordinator for London’s Right to Roam. The workshops will give people the opportunity to get creative with words to tell stories about how land affects us, and dig into how we can reconnect to land and each other. Come and find us if you are going to be there! 

Land for Reconnection

4-5.30pm on Friday 5th July @ Fire in the Belly

Our land and our bodies. What does it mean to have roots in place? To feel connected to Land? What structures are stopping this from happening? In this workshop, Shared Assets and Right to Roam London ground us in a conversation on land justice. We will share ways we relate to land, and build collective intentions for how we can make the land system just.

Land Storytelling

6-7.30pm on Friday 5th July @ Fire in the Belly

Join Jamaican-English poet Chloe Tenesha Giles and land justice activists from Shared Assets in this session where we will use storytelling and poetry to reflect on land, place, and belonging. This session will be a lighthearted writing and spoken word session, where we look at the connection between people and places through concepts, characters, and worldbuilding.
