Event description
An open day at Selgars Mill: a centre for the democratic economy, climate emergency, and social change.

About this Event

In April 2021, Stir to Action are opening a residential training centre for the democratic economy, climate emergency, and social change right here in Mid Devon.

What will the centre be for?

Our new training centre will be supporting communities to create new responses to a range of crises, from the decline of the high street to the impacts of climate change, from youth unemployment to food insecurity, and from biodiversity loss to pandemia.

To support this work we’ll be hosting and offering a range of events, from short courses to small festivals, retreats to eco-weddings, organisational away days to cultural residentials, and we’d like to collaborate with other community-led initiatives in the South West.

Due to the pandemic we have postponed the opening of the centre, which was due to happen in 2020. In the meantime, we are hosting an online webinar series BeyondHere. To find out more about our current offering visit selgarsmill.co.uk.

Who are we?

Selgars Mill has been set up by a small South West-based organisation called Stir to Action: we've been working regionally and nationally since 2013.

We publish a quarterly magazine of new economic ideas, host the New Economy Programme – a year of one-day workshops in five UK cities, have recently launched BeyondHere – a new travel fellowship, and the Playground for the New Economy, a three-day festival in Frome, Somerset.

You can find out more about Stir to Action here.

Why would I come to the open day?

We would like to meet and engage with local communities in the South West, and we're looking for ideas from local people as you know the local economy better than anyone.

We're also looking to connect with other local businesses who might be interested in becoming our suppliers, or partnering with us to run events, or simply to hire our incredible venue.

We'll run the Open Day as a series of tours of the site. Please book on to a slot for a tour of the site during which we will show you the mill, and its facilities and grounds.

We'll provide some light refreshments - bring your own reusable cup if you can. So if you run a local business, or you're involved in a community group, or you're just keen to see what we've planned, book your tour slot here and we look forward to meeting you on 5 November!

Any questions, get in touch with Lara on hello@selgarsmill.co.uk

Pandemic Precautions

We use the latest Government guidance and will be running the day as a series of tours in small groups of six. We will ask you to wear a face covering indoors and maintain a distance of 1m from other guests. Hand sanitiser will be available and we will use your registration information for Test & Trace.

If the event proves popular we may look into opening up further Open Day tours.
