We're grassroots Heathrow residents proving that communities less dependent on oil can be more resilient, stronger and happier. We take direct action on climate change and shrinking supplies of cheap energy by transitioning to a post-oil, community-led future for the Heathrow villages.

Harts Residency – A process of Unlearning

You are invited to take part in a creative and nourishing residential experience at community project Grow Heathrow.

Friday 13th – Sunday 22nd of November ** RSVP by Monday 26th October **

What will be involved: Collective living, sharing skills, space to develop personal work, collaborative creativity, inner reflection, long term sustainability, nature, supporting the Grow Heathrow community and surrounding Heathrow villages. The residency will include some workshops, (eg. Permaculture, using art to create social change) morning and evening sessions to share, reflect and develop ideas, a final project in the wider community and space for people to shape the structure themselves.

Food, sleeping space, facilities, workshop space and materials will be provided. There will also be regular integrated but optional wellbeing sessions such as yoga, meditation and massage. Participants will be involved in the tasks that make daily living at Grow Heathrow possible.

From visual art or performance, to social sculpture, or learning the deep art of making perfect compost from our poo, any range of artistic practice is welcomed, as long as it is aligned to the aims of the project.

Participants are asked to make a contribution to help make all of this possible. Suggested donation £20 to £40 for the 10 days but you are invited to pay less or more, depending on what you can afford. Where will the residency be held: The residency will be based at Grow Heathrow, a squatted land project, run off-grid from renewable energy with activities such as food growing, bike mechanics and inner wellbeing.

Grow Heathrow is set up in support of local community, which is heavily impacted by the airport and the threat of its expansion. Participants will sleep in a communal guest cabin, there is also an option of bringing a tent if you prefer.

Although the residency will be based at Grow Heathrow, partiicpants are encouraged to develop ideas that also connect with the wider village and community. When will the residency be held: The residency will last 10 days (13th-22nd Nov) and participants are invited to come for the duration.

If you cannot come for this long, you are welcome to join from Friday 19th to Sunday 22nd November for the final community based project.

If you are interested, RSVP by phone or email, and include an explanation about what you think this experience can bring for you and what you can offer the rest of the group, Grow Heathrow and the wider Heathrow villages, (no longer than half an a4 page). Please express interest by Monday 26th October
