"I want to do more" : towards effective protest and action

Thank you for participating in our call out and expressing your want to do more for your communities and world. 

This project is taking place as part of the My Body My Space festival online during February 2021. 

Protest exists because we want to see some level of change in our communities. It is possible that we all could spare an extra few hours a month and we all have skills and knowledge to share that can create positive impacts for areas in need of change. The key is working together. 

We see this project as an opportunity for you to call like minded people to you, to open up a conversation that will help us discover mutual exchanges that create real positive impact, short or long term.

A community can be defined by geography (communities who live together) as well as identity (communities who identify with the same attitudes and interests). In creating space for these connections, we invite you to think about spaces of expertise, interests, knowledge and skill that could help bring about positive impact, systemic problem spaces that you feel passionate about bringing change to as well as geographic spaces that are in need of change and support. 

We hope that this project will connect and support people who will be able to more easily create considered mutual positive impact together. If you want to do more, this is to give you a place to START.
