Fancy some Street Wisdom? What is it?
Well, Street Wisdom is an enjoyable, powerful and free way of using the streets to learn something new. It’s also a way of getting out and about and walking around our town.
You get a chance to meet new people, build confidence in travelling around the town on foot and learn something into the bargain.
Check out the TEDx video all about the concept of Street Wisdom.
How does it work?
The brainchild of David Pearl and Chris Barez-Brown, it’s a simple idea, based on the proposition that the environment and people around us are full of wisdom we largely overlook or ignore. Street Wisdom allows us to tune into the rich stimulus and learn. As our strap line says – answers are everywhere – you just have to ask.
Who is it for?
It’s for anyone who has questions about their life and/or work and wants some fresh answers. It is relevant if you’re tackling a challenge in your working life, figuring out what’s next, struggling with the day-to-day stuff or seeking that inspirational breakthrough.
What’s the format?
Street Wisdom is a three hour experience structured in the three one hour sessions, TUNE, ASK and SHARE. First our Street guides help you tune up your senses so you can pick up far richer information from the environment that you would normally. Then you’re off on a journey by yourself – your street quest – where you ask your question and see what answers present themselves. In the final 60 minute session everyone gathers to share what happened.
What does it cost?
There is no charge for street wisdom. At a time when education is becoming increasingly commercialised we want to offer a powerful form of learning which is completely free. We like to say it’s a place you don’t pay fees, you pay attention. We’ll restrict numbers to around sixteen people so if you sign up to come along, please let us know in advance if you can’t make it, so someone else can take your space.
Who are the organisers?
