About this event

We are delighted to be welcoming Jonny Baker and Gavin Mart to Sheffield as part of the Pioneer Practice tour and we’ll be hosting them for an afternoon workshop 2-4pm on 28th June at St.Mark's Church, Broomhill, focused on pioneering new initiatives and dreaming new possibilities. It’ll be an afternoon of stories, sharing and music aiming to inspire you in your pioneering and social enterprise and to encourage others too.

Jonny has been running training and resources for faith-based pioneers and social entrepreneurs in Oxford since 2009 and before that pioneered and supported pioneers in a number of creative ventures. Projects birthed from CMS’s support and training include mental health focused brewing, an ethical cleaning company in the city, community-based efforts in a number housing estate in Leicestershire and a heap more. Space to Breathe was also helped along the way by their work.

Gavin is a serial-entrepreneur from North Wales. He’s birthed a brewery and comedy/arts venue, outdoor festivals, a horse-box mobile bar and lots more. Gavin is also a musician and poet and recently launched his new collection of poems called ’The Dream Stealer.'

The workshop will explore the idea that imaginative pioneering starts with seeing something - a possibility, an idea, a way that things could be better or different. It will then take a look at how we make something happen out of what we see. Gerald Arbuckle said that Pioneers are “dreamers who do” and this workshop will look at that.

Expect:

+ stories and inspiration

+ music and creativity

+ a chance to dream, conspire and inspire.

Whatever kind of social enterprise, project dreaming or new idea you have we reckon they’ll be loads to gain from attending this event. Our main focus is on faith-based settings but Jonny and Gavin also have experience of the world outside faith too so they'll be lots for everyone to explore. If you’re interested in making and doing good in the world through your big idea then this workshop is for you.

Tickets are £10.

Copies of the book Pioneer Practice will be available on the day.

Pioneer Practice is a fantastic book, published last year, with stacks of stories, ideas and creative reflections on imaginative pioneering.

Pioneer Practice is pitched very practically to encourage people with ideas for starting pioneer projects or communities. It contains stories and examples, articles, interviews and conversations. It is full colour and you can dip in where you like. The themes cover things like team, money, soulwork, time, dealing with the powers that be. See getsidetracked.co for some sample pages.

Do come along and invite your friends.
