Women Together - ESOL English Conversation

/wp-content/uploads/women-together-212x300.jpg Make new friends, learn new skills & practice your English!

If you are a woman in Forest Fields and would like to meet other women from your neighbourhood, come along & join us.

This group is mainly aimed at women who want to improve their English language skills, but it's open to all - doesn't matter the language you speak!

We offer different free activities, ranging from excursions and visits to craft and creative workshops.

Children are welcome at our conversation group, although we are all volunteers so unfortunately we cannot guarantee that there is an adequate number of childminders at each session (more volunteers are always welcome!).

The get together runs for two hours a week, usually on Wednesday mornings, from 10 to 12, at Sumac Centre, but some activities might happen at different locations and days, eg 29th April: Outdoor education with Wild Things Collective - meet at 9.15am - back at 3pm.

Sumac Art Space

/img/arc/sumac-art-space.jpg Enjoy doing art but never seem to find the time? Or 'not arty' but like making things or designing tattoos?

Art Space is the opportunity to express yourself, feed your imagination and play with visual art materials in a relaxed, supportive and non-judgemental environment. Art Space focuses on enjoying the creative process rather than on learning techniques. There are no set activities so you have the freedom to explore your own creative ideas whilst being part of a group and meeting new people.

Art Materials will be provided but if you want to do anything specialized then feel free to bring your own
materials. This is a drop-in event and is open between 7-9pm.

Art Space runs on the 4th Wednesday of every month at Sumac and at Lee Rosy's Tea on 2nd Wednesdays.

Full details at Event Web Site.

Remembering David Lane

http://www.veggies.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/david.jpg On Sunday June 7th at the Sumac Centre there will be an informal memorial meeting for our late supporter, life-long peace activist, conscientious objector and vegan, David Lane [1934 2014].

David's friend & follow campaigner, Bruce Kent, honorary vice-president of CND, will join us, as will a number of people who worked alongside David in the book trade and on many campaign trails over the years.

Vegan catering will be provided Veggies Catering Campaign, whose very existence, let alone 30 years of campaigning, came about through David's constant support.

Open Mic @ The Sumac Centre

/wp-content/uploads/openmic-212x300.jpg Note that Due to not wanting to clash with charity event for Nepal at Bar Duex on May 8th there will be no open mic at Sumac.

On the Second Friday of each month (not every 2nd Friday!) is an acoustic open mic night at the Sumac.

This compliments the Punk 4 The Homeless gig on the last Friday of each month, in support of Casa Alianza UK - to help and defend street children across Latin America.

Community Circle

http://inclusive-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/wall.jpg

In Nottingham we have a quiet revolution going on.

We have MakerSpaces, community focussed markets and gardens, food collectives, small shops, skills exchanges, fix-it stalls and swapshops. Alongside them we have the rise of homegrown slow food, baked bread made from organic flour from our windmill, bicycles and walking. Operating on a human scale together we are creating an earth-friendly economy and becoming the heart of healthy neighbourhood. These are direct challenges to the consumer society in its expansive earth damaging form.

NGcircle is part of this challenge. Together we demonstrate how magic can happen when we start talking, listening and trusting each other.
