Interview with upstream
Totnes street games festival
Sunday 23rd April 2017 was the day of the Totnes Street Games Festival. In the recently-renovated Rotherfold square, parents and children gathered to remember, relearn and encounter street games. The square was filled with laughter, children dashing around, skipping ropes, bouncing balls, chalk drawings. In this podcast, I speak to the organisers, children and parents to capture a sense of the day and why it matters.
Totnes futures – Totnes Pound report, 2018
The Totnes Pound was one of the first local currencies in the UK and has inspired similar initiatives across the nation. It was started to help keep money flowing locally and has succeeded in educating and inspiring people from around the world. It has however come to a cross roads: after years of hard work the volunteers who have been carrying it forward are ready to take a step back. Aware of this ‘change or die’ moment, in February this year I offered to research possible ways for the Totnes Pound to be re-envisioned.

“Really enjoyed your talk on Tuesday. So good to hear coherent recognition of truths that many of us schlep around in our hearts as we try to live whole and honest lives in an alien system. Thank you!”
“I enjoyed being encouraged to think out of the box.(…)It has made me feel far more connected not only to my community, but to humanity in general. It has raised my awareness on all sorts of levels.”
“When I first saw the programme I thought it would never work. What I then witnessed was a masterclass in facilitation.”
