You are warmly invited to come along to the Old Custom House, Bideford on Thursday 6th Sept at 11am to find out more about creating participatory politics in Torridge and explore being part of co-creating a Peoples Constitution.
Jamie Kelsey Fry will be opening the event with a talk and discussion on the new and emerging participatory politics.
Jamie is a contributing editor to the New Internationalist and a leading authority on the global movement for ordinary people to reclaim power through participatory and digital democracy practices. He has worked with the Spanish municipalist movement who have regained power over twenty of their cities and towns including Madrid and Barcelona. He has also worked with the Danish Alternative party, the Icelandic pirate party (who facilitated the world’s first crowd sourced constitution) the VT aiwan movement and the independent party of Frome who have run their town since 2013.
This should be great. Don’t miss it!
