Campaigns & Speakers’ Forum

campaigns-kidThe Campaigns Field is the centre of politics and protest at the Gathering – bringing together activists and academics, and raising awareness around diverse social and environmental justice issues. Every day is jam packed with discussions and workshops, with up to six sessions happening at once.

The Speakers’ Forum & Radical Cinema occupy a corner of the field, offering in-depth info, inspiration and debate.

In 2018 the field hosted a Workshop Dome with packed programme, a Women’s Tent, Travellerspace, ‘Make Things Out Of Stuff’ with the Campaign For Real Events, South West Against Nuclear (SWAN), Earth First!, Radical Parenting and a variety of campaign stalls.

Cal’s Garden, the recycling-upcycling-waste-minimising Resourcing Centre and Veggies Catering Campaign (with the BEST veggie burgers!) were also based here.

The evenings are owned by the solar-powered Radical Wales DIY open mic stage: come along, have a go!
