Event Description

This summer London will have its very own Permaculture festival. Sunday 22nd August. See http://www.LondonPermaculture.com for the full updated programme.

The festival aims to bring together all groups directly or indirectly related to Permaculture and Transition in & around London to share news, information & skills: connecting together green-minded people in the city, for the first time.

The London Permaculture Festival aims to inspire and inform. Packed throughout the day with back to back engaging workshops, inspiring films, interactive practical demonstrations, expert talks, and relaxed networking. Helping Londoners to engage with their local activist projects, community gardens & Transition Town groups throughout the city.

The beautiful Arts & Crafts building of Cecil Sharp House near Camden Town, home of the London folk scene, will host this non-profit grassroots event organized solely by volunteers- aiming to unite green London and create a positive critical mass of awareness around DIY culture, reshaping & reconnecting our capital city in this time of resurgence.

I will be doing the Video Activist workshop. Come to the workshop to learn how to make fast-turnaround video news reports. Please bring the items of portable recording equipment you have - video camera, stills camera, mobile phone, laptop computer and connectors. We will use them during the workshop.
