Leeds 17-18th April “Social Centres in a time of Crisis”


A weekend of workshops, discussions and socialising for everyone with an interest in radical autonomous social centres.

How can a new generation of social centres learn from the successes and failures of established ones? What are the ways in which we can best face up to the challenges?

How can we sustain energy and dynamism? Can we stop the daily grind of actually running a social centre from eclipsing the politics and passion behind it?

Is there a way in which we can capitalise on the current widespread disaffection with mainstream politics? What is the role of social centres in a time of crisis?

What is the current situation with your social centre? What’s going right, what’s going wrong, and what support do you need?
