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.
Tynedale Transformed 2020

We’ve made a start at Tynedale Transformed 2020

We are continuing with Second Sundays.

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 feature events, workshops, virtual content and a panel discussion.

Post Covid19, What do we want our world to look like?
We’ve begun to shape the vision – the plan is forming and we’re all involved.
