Shift and Signal School: Climate Minds Workshop

Wed 16th May 2018

Workshop with Julia Macintosh and Steve Thorp

5 – 6.15pm
The NewBridge Project: Gateshead

FREE | Please book here

Julia Macintosh and Steve Thorp will run a workshop looking at the way we think and feel about climate change and what it means for all of us. The aim of the Climate Minds initiative is to encourage conversations and creative responses to the crisis. This workshop will explore some of the questions and tools needed for this task.

Julia Macintosh is a writer, facilitator and learner who encourages others, especially women, to find voice through perseverance and courage. Steve Thorp is a counsellor, coach, writer, psychotherapist and spiritual companion, whose ‘soul-making’ work supports people in their wellbeing, creativity and activism.

This workshop will be followed at 630pm by the launch of unpsychology magazine 4: Climate Minds. There is no need to book separately for this event.

We will provide paper and pens, but please bring along your own notepad and paper if you wish to.


This workshop is part of the Shift and Signal School, three days of workshops, sharing, live recordings and celebration of our commitment to work together for a flourishing future.

Shift and Signal is a commission by Dr Alex Lockwood, that creates a space in which to imagine how we can go deeper in our adaptations to the crises of the contemporary moment such as social inequality, climate change, and species extinction. The project is an attempt to shift us beyond the usual stuck conversations about how we implement change, and signal towards better ways of living that are now appearing.

The Shift and Signal School is part of Deep Adaptation. An ongoing programme of commissions, talks, events and workshops looking at how current social, civic and economic issues can be understood in relation to climate change.
