Last year Tynedale Transformed partnered Hexham Debates, who run on line debates on matters to do with peace and social justice. We are continuing this partnership into 2024 and will, once again, be running 3 in person debates between now and June. Please listen to, and participate in, this season’s debates, whether virtual or in real life.

Tynedale Transformed is about re-imagining a fairer and sustainable future and making it happen.
Tynedale Transformed is about pushing the boundaries of what political participation looks like. Strategy games, treasure hunts, reading groups, and theatre workshops, talks, events, walks, lectures…. anything is possible. TT will be based on inclusivity and a shared wish to examine the issues facing our communities and our world, encouraging a politics based on creativity, open mindedness and comradeship. We want to transform the way we live together. We want to start the conversation.
Our aim is to draw on existing networks and connections, locally, regionally and nationally as well as providing a platform for new ideas new groups and individuals.

TT20 was a festival of ideas. Imagining radical change and planning how to make it happen. It’s about doing it together. We platformed local, regional, national and international voices to help tackle issues that affect us all here in Tynedale.
Second Sundays will featured events, workshops, virtual content and a panel discussion.
