What do each of us really want to be doing, working, and playing?
What do we want our culture to look like in the years ahead?
What new cultural forms can support the transition to sustainable ways of life?
This summer, Toronto-based musician, song writer, and activist Michael Holt is embarking on a “Transition Culture Tour” of house concerts and other grassroots, participatory gatherings in support of the inspiring Transition approach to sustainability.
Holt puts on an improvised, theatrical, one-man variety show using multiple instruments, musical styles, moods, and characters. After visiting Transition Initiatives across continental europe throughout June, his first UK stop will be at Transition Heathrow this Tuesday 3rd July.
We will be welcoming Michael to our home at Grow Heathrow, where he will be performing in our newly refurbished cabin. After a shared meal together, we’ll be treated to a diverse and theatrical concert in our living space, followed by a participatory conversation about how Transition Heathrow is involving itself in the Heathrow Villages. The event will be based on the tradition of house concert-salons, popular 100 years ago in the days before electronic communication and globalization, and will be a small-scale, powered-down, dialogue-stimulating, and community-building cultural format.
Bring food to share and an open mind.
