  • Community and place-based action
  • Social innovation

Every month, join us online over a Friday lunchtime to discover changemakers from across the South East region, be inspired and learn from each other. 

Echoing the RSA’s origin as an enlightenment coffeehouse over 250 years ago, our regular South East Coffeehouse series offers an interactive space to share, spark and develop ideas for social change.  

Each Friday, we feature one South East changemaker, giving them the floor to share their work or facilitate a discussion. We invite you to connect with local changemakers, be inspired by innovative Fellow-led projects, share insights and learn from each other. 

The themes and conversations vary month-to-month, fostering unique conversations in each session. So come along, and start your weekend with a spark of inspiration!  

Coming up in 2024, we'll hear from:

16 February: SareeNaSorry Funshops (Poppy Jaman FRSA, Brighton)

Launched in May 2023 at Brighton's Riot Crrrl, these vibrant events promote saree draping as an art form, fostering respect and understanding of its social context. Explore identity, mental health, and textile knowledge while addressing fast fashion's environmental impact.  

Supported by the RSA South East Grant, these Funshops extend collaboration to the LGBTQ+ Ledward Centre. At the upcoming lunch and learn, Poppy Jaman will delve into her colorful project's creation, lessons learned, and collaborative efforts with local businesses and community organizations. Don't miss this enriching experience! 

More guest speakers to be announced soon. Get in touch if you want to take part, and share the impact and learnings from your own work.
