RSA Breakfast Club is a weekly opportunity to meet other Fellows and start the day with a purposeful conversation.
Grab yourself some breakfast and coffee to fuel an informal conversation around the Fellowship table discsussing a social challenge, an idea or a project. The perfect antidote to the mid-week slump - breakfast with a side of enlightenment.
If there is a conversation you'd like to start, please get in touch with Alice, Rawthmells Events and Programme Manager, with a short description of your topic as well as some dates that work for you.
Location: Dr Cross room, Rawthmells Coffeehouse, RSA House, 8 John Adam Street, WC2N 6EZ
Upcoming Breakfast Club conversations:
Wednesday 29th May
- Join Alice Sewell, Rawthmells Events and Programme Manager to explore how you can engage with the RSA. Come along with a social change idea, project or challenge you'd like to discuss, or just bring an open mind for coffee and conversation over breakfast at the Fellowship table.
Wednesday 5th June
- Medellín’s Comuna 13, once known as a dangerous district in a dangerous city, was transformed by community participation in arts and culture. “We discovered you can really change people’s lives with culture. Not by giving them culture, but by getting them involved in it. We don’t stage a concert, we give people the tools to stage their own.” Said Daniel Carvalho, the Urban Planner and mastermind of the project. In Torbay, a highly deprived area of South-West England, with residents facing huge challenges such as homelessness and substance abuse, Torbay Tattoo Tales saw local stories told through ink. “It does exactly what a civic arts institution should do: tell powerful stories that engage local hearts and minds. By making local people the source of the art they were both celebrated and other visitors benefitted from learning about their stories” – Samira Ahmed, journalist, writer and broadcaster. Arts and culture can have this powerful effect on communities and individuals. At breakfast Cassandra Chadderton FRSA will ask; could it be part of a prescription for our divided society today? What would we need to make this happen?
