Brixton Playing Fields is an interactive, outdoor arts installation with collaborative play and inclusivity at its heart. “Play should be at the centre of a united community and our aim is to encourage adults and children to engage, talk, build and create together.” Brixton Playing Fields is a headline partner of Brixton Design Trail, one of the districts of London Design Festival.The location for Brixton Playing Fields is at the centre of Brixton, open 24 hours a day, free to enter and open to all. The location is a unique, undeveloped pocket of land enveloped by rapid regeneration. For 9 days, this space will be brought to life with a visually striking installation, a chance to highlight the benefits of public space within our cities. ‘Tools’ will be provided for participants to create their own bespoke games, their own rules and stories in an environment that looks familiar at first, but, on closer investigation isn’t so conventional. What will be created? What will be left behind?Play is where children learn to share and interact with one another and where social boundaries are broken. Adults wriggle from the shackles of socially acceptable grown-up behaviour, and individuals merge for bigger teams where the joint ambition to have fun, to learn or to win overrides anything else.Brixton Playing Fields welcomes everyone. Come out to play…  About the process: Studio HE and Lisa Turner-Wray conceived of Brixton Playing Fields as a reponse to the theme 'Love is Power', they have collaborated with the Remakery to create elements of Brixton Playing Fields. Over a series of workshops held at the Remakery, participants from the community have taken concept ideas and developed them into physical objects that will form part of the event.  Please note that this is an arts installation and caution should be advised when engaging with the items.All children to be supervised by adults at all times.  • Studio HE (http://www.studio-he.com/home/)• London Design Festival 2017 (http://londondesignfestival.com/events/brixton-playing-fields-0)• Lisa Turner-Wray (https://www.lisaturnerwray.com/)• Remakery (http://remakery.org/)

On reaching our hotels, at the end of each day, you will hand over your bike for safe overnight keeping and collect your luggage. Each morning, you will hand over your luggage and collect your bike. Obviously space is limited and hard-sided luggage is not suitable, so it is essential that your kit is packed in a soft sailing bag, rucksack or expedition kit-bag. What insurance will I require?It is a requirement of entry that you have adequate insurance to cover your participation on the event. We will require a copy of valid insurance before travel. We also recommend that you apply for a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), as the NHS will cover most medical care when traveling in Europe. You can apply for an EHIC at your local post office. Is travel, to start of route in London and from end of route in Paris, included?No…you are responsible for your own travel arrangements to the start of the event in London and return travel from Paris back to UK. Chapeau will, however ensure your bike is safely transport to and from the event if required, allowing you the freedom for free time in either fabulous capitals. Perhaps a relaxing spa day in London before you embark on your adventure or exploring the wonderful sights Paris has to offer, the choice is yours.Chapeau events will of course provide advice on best travel options and further accommodation requirements should you require. Will I receive further information?Yes…a full detailed information pack will be issued following signed registration.

The shrine of St Erkenwald was plundered and waves of iconoclasm followed in which shrines and images were destroyed. Paul’s Cross, an outdoor covered pulpit from which proclamations were made and leading prelates expounded, often controversially, on theology and politics became a key platform for pro and anti-Reformation declarations. Marking the 500th Anniversary of  what has become known as the starting point of The Reformation,The publication of Martin Luther's 95 these, this talk will consider how St Paul's Cathedral was affected by the Reformation years and adapted to the new patterns of worship. Dr Mary Morrissey is an Associate Professor at Reading University. Her primary research subject is Reformation literature, particularly from London. She has a particular interest in Paul's Cross, the outdoor preaching platform formerly in St Paul’s Churchyard, the most important public pulpit in sixteenth and seventeenth-century England. She also retains an interest in early modern women writers, with a particular focus on women writers' use of theological arguments.  Admission is free but places are limited and must be booked in advance. Wheelchair access is via a lift in the South Churchyard. Tube: St Paul's, Mansion House; Rail: City Thameslink, Blackfriars; 242,25,4,11

The present was made in the past. Our future is born today. What future are you birthing?  Is it time for change?          We make our futures NOT by what we do tomorrow but…           …by what we do and don’t do today               …by what we say and don’t say today                    …by what we see and feel and think today                         … by what we miss, deny, ignore, distort today This programme is for leaders, coaches, supervisors, health professionals, parents, students - in fact it is for ANYONE committed to doing something to change themselves, their lives, their relationships, their prospects.     What you learn here will equip you to act wisely amidst complexity in all aspects of your life.  You will learn to use the P6 Constellation as a presence-in-action map to assist you in deepening and extending your efficacy and artistry in and with life. Through practice you will become better able to see, adapt, communicate and take coherent, wise action in any circumstances.  You will develop the wherewithal to get unstuck and to liberate yourself into flow.  With practice you will find yourself ever more skilled in navigating the complexities and challenges you face, whatever the context.  For practitioners working with others, you will quite literally find your personal and professional practice increasingly transformed by the insights you gain. Irrespective of your roles in life, this programme will open up new ways of seeing, understanding and being in the world.  It will deliver joys and surprises; it will be challenging and sometimes a bit confusing.  This is the nature of learning.  It will call on each of you to let go of what you think you know in order to discover what is currently beyond sight or reach. Through this process you will find yourselves increasingly liberated from the fictions that bind and blind you - that prevent you being and becoming your full potential. During our time together we will make connections between ancient wisdoms and new sciences - helping you to connect to wider patterns in nature and the wider world.  We will...                                                                                                                         ...dive deep and stretch high                                                                                                        ...reach outwards and touch inwards                                                                                 ...explore what happens within and between us                                                                ...engage lovingly and boldly with our deepest selves                                               ...experiment with ancient wisdom and embodied knowhow                           ...play wholly and wholeheartedly as ourselves, in action together ...connect where the sacred meets the systemic within, between and beyond Throughout our time together, we will share, experience, reflect, play, practice and learn together.  I will introduce you to models, frameworks and theories that can help you make sense of your experiences and insights.  You will engage in solo work, paired practice and whole group activities.  We will take advantage of all our senses and sense-making - using our bodies, minds and spirits, not in isolation but as the integrated whole beings that we are.  FAQs What should I bring?  For INDOORS: Please bring a pair of non-slip slippers or non-slip socks as we will be walking on a floor map or rug!  For OUTSIDE: We will spend some time outdoors.  Please bring suitable outdoor clothing and footwear so you can keep warm and dry.  Where has the P6 Constellation come from? The P6 Constellation has emerged through personal and professional experience over some 30+ years.  It has been proven in practice and is substantiated by my doctoral research.  Can I continue my learning after the event?
