Re-imagining Nailsworth - an experiential imaginarium

7.30pm

At Mortimer Rooms GL6 0DU

£5 / £2 concessions

This workshop is an opportunity to bathe in imagining the positive future you’d like to see, and what our town and community could become. The thinking behind this work is to create an irresistible vision of the future that can motivate us to make it happen. 

Whilst it’s important to pay attention to what’s going wrong, and to try and avert catastrophe, there’s a danger that we spend too much time imagining bad outcomes, and this can increase our stress. By contrast, imagining positively increases our well-being, and can be a first step to making it a reality.

Participants will be invited to cultivate a vision of their ideal future, and then to find commonalities that can become a shared vision to work towards.

Facilitated by Bill Roberts and Sue Ryall in collaboration with Nailsworth Climate Action Network; limited to 25 participants.
