Recharge is not an event about organising or exchanging tactics. It won’t include presentations or talks. Instead, we will have informal activities, workshops and other things to do which are intended to be nourishing and healing.

Aderonke Apata, Trustee of Museum of Homelessness will kick off our event and introduce the day. Aderonke is a Human Rights Activist, legal professional and the founder of African Rainbow Family. Aderonke’s incredible victory after a 13-year battle is the stuff of legend. She will share tips around creativity, resistance and joy in the face of adversity.

Throughout the day there will be creative activities, a lovely picnic lunch provided by Akara bakery and relaxation. The event will be facilitated by Museum of Homelessness crew members Benji Lain, Jess Turtle and Matt Turtle.

As a key part of the event MoH collaborator Jacob V. Joyce will share their spaceship. The spaceship is a huge mobile fabric mural which is activated through games, grounding rituals and the embodied gestures of systemically marginalised activists. The spaceship was created by many voices and invites people to consider the ways we can resist alienation together and create new ways of moving forward together: cruising beyond the isolating grip of oppressive state violence.

This is one of our “take part” events this Summer!
