The Brockley Festival of Ideas for Change 2017, November 19


Lewisham Southwark College, Lewisham Way, SE4 1UT.  

The festival is back for its second year, with speakers including nailed-on new Lewisham Mayor Damian Egan, Andrew Mitchell from outstanding local homeless charity 999 Club, Battle of Lewisham academic Dr John Price, food futurist Rosie Boycott, boxing coach Jon McKenna, agricultural economist James Skinner and reparations scholar / activist Esther Stanford-Xosei.
Organisers BrocSoc explain:

Last year’s very successful event had 250 people attending, almost all local. We have planned this year’s event to enable more time for discussion by continuing the sessions in break-out rooms. We will also have films and audio recordings in another room and an Ideas Cafe for informal discussions. We have five themes:
  • Battle of Lewisham - 40 years later
  • Housing, Homelessness and Inequality
  • Debt, Money and Exploitation
  • Food and the Environment
  • From Ideas to Action
The agenda will be on our website this weekend, as soon as we have finalised our exciting range of nearly 30 speakers. Please register online to reserve your FREE place: or directly from 

We will welcome donations from those who can afford it as the event is self-funded. Tea and coffee will free, with affordable food at lunchtime, or you can bring your own. 

Doors open at 9.30am for registration and coffee before the 10am start. 

We look forward to welcoming you to this stimulating event which we believe will contribute to actions for change.
