Summat is a biennial festival in Leeds that brings non-academic, non-activist audiences together with social movements, for a day of workshops, talks, activities, and performances. To explore this years theme of ‘creative alternative futures’, we will be learning from concrete examples of how communities are carving out new ways to regain control and democratic ownership of our resources, services and institutions, creatively resisting destructive capitalism and challenging the different types of borders that divide us. We will come away with new alliances, the courage to dream visions of what we are fighting for, and the skills to build fairer and more sustainable futures. Summat else is possible!
