Cath from Cornerstone is holding an intro to Radical Routes at Cornerstone, 3 days before the Radical Routes gathering in Manchester. I can cycle you there from the Parkinson Steps if you don't know where Sholebroke Av is.
Need space for workshops, meetings, gatherings, classes? Want to be part of a project to build an autonomous, non-hierarchical social centre for Leeds?
Spaces like the Common Place have been hugely valuable to a wide range of groups within Leeds and we’re planning to open a new space within the next year. However, if we want this to happen, we’re going to need your help.
Green Action's made amazing use of Leeds' autonomous spaces (Peanut Gallery and the Common Place), so come help us get the next one rolling.
The plan is to buy a building that will provide free or very cheap meeting, workshop and creative spaces, a venue for socialising and fundraisers, a cheap community cafe and office space for supportive groups, alongside other ideas in the pipeline. We’re busy producing a business plan to apply for a mortgage and searching for buildings. We meet up every month to catch up and think more about what kind of space we’d like.
