Generation Rebellion: the power of intergenerational activism. A film screening and workshop with East London women

Generation Rebellion is an intergenerational exploration of climate activism.

“I would like to tell all the young people: have hope!” (Older participant)

Join us to explore how it feels to be an activist and what it means to take action. Navigate the everyday feelings and challenges of climate activism and encounter fresh perspectives with a dynamic, intergenerational group of female panellists and creators.

For those wondering what happens when you run out of ideas – a dose of encouragement

For those feeling weighed down – an injection of energy

Since January 2020, Magic Me has worked with younger and older women from East London to explore what climate activism means to them. We now present an informal workshop, film screening and Q&A with the women aged 12 – 80+ behind the film.

Come along to meet the group via live video link and explore the challenges we face as climate activists of all ages. Take part in an activity and discussion facilitated by theatre-maker Sue Mayo and climate activist Maz Morris and help us in our quest to discover solutions, drawing wisdom from each other and from the wide-ranging perspectives of this group of women from East London. We aren’t experts, and we can’t solve this crisis alone, but we do know how important it is to work together!

Generation Rebellion is run by Magic Me; an arts charity uniting generations to build stronger communities by pioneering intergenerational arts practices that disrupt perceptions of ageing. Generation Rebellion is in partnership with Mulberry School for Girls, and builds on our long history of projects reflecting on women’s history, lives and futures.
