Event description

Description

Make sure your trouble - stays good !

Have you read Be More Pirate, by Sam Conniff Allende ? Sam found inspiration from the Golden Age of Pirates and together with his Right hand Pirate Alex Barker are helping spread those ideas and energy which appeal to many of us feeling trapped beneath senseless rules and outdated conditions. ( this stuff applies to everyone & everything but my interest areas are improving our health, supporting care, communities & using the well known pirate superpowers of relationships, compassion & empathy)

Beg ,borrow ,steal or as a last resort ,maybe even buy the book, its not too expensive !

The event will be a chance to hear from Sam & Alex , meet others who feel the same , find mini-crews to work with , and we’ll hear from a few people who are running projects or have ‘pirate’ ideas to improve , health & care & more. I'm not cheerleading this for any other reason than that it has helped me and some of the people I really care about, find new ways of constructing challenge and think about stuff that gets in the way of us building something better. As the books popularity and the messy'movement' seems to grow, I suspect some people are beginning to have the marmite reaction & I get that ,i'm usually the most skeptical in the room. However , if you have an idea you want to talk about that feels quite 'pirate' , find out more about joining an informal gathering or just Pi-curious - why not come along ?

There won’t be seats for everyone ; so do let me know if you have access needs or will require a chair reservation & I’ll do my best to sort.

PS - This event is simply a personal interest and has no connections to any organisations I have worked for past or present .

PPS watch out for minor edits to the event , as this stuff develops #Naomi

The Venue

The Old Bank Residency is a twelve-month occupation of a disused bank, allowing a space for creative practices to experiment, collaborate and grow.
