Our Power Is Real

Our Power Is Real: A Festival of Grassroots Social Change is a one day event bringing together a wide range of community and grassroots campaign groups to celebrate 60 years of Peace House (also known as the building Housmans Bookshop is in).

In 2020 we want to create spaces where we can come together to celebrate the achievements of the past and collectively imagine ways forward. Most importantly, we want to do this in an open and welcoming manner that strengthens our collective movements and connects our struggles.

On the day there will be discussions, practical workshops, stalls, books, zines, film screenings, kids activities, andĀ info on a wide range of campaigns and social movements. With so many different campaign groups, grassroots movements, and community organisations present, this is a wonderful chance for anyone with an interest in social change to come along and find out how to get involved.


The event will be open from 10am-4pm, with workshops and discussions throughout the day. There will be a busy central space with stalls and info about all sorts of campaigns, so drop by to have a chat and to find out what people are working on!
