New and newsworthy
We asked programme Producer Katherine Goodenough and Creative Director Paul Northup to share the reasons for and stories behind some of this year’s programme bookings.
This year at Greenbelt, Quakers in Britain are running an interactive discussion session called Three Voices. It’s so called because each one starts with three different perspectives. Over three evenings, three different questions are asked, and each time three different voices give deeply personal responses.
Our panels – on debt, asylum and immigration, movement-building, welfare, benefits and Trident are all hosted against a backdrop of austerity. With this as their context, they ask: what are we going to do? Get all cross on social media? Or roll up our sleeves and do something more practical. These panel conversations are designed to foster dreams and visions of an alternative life under the rule of austerity.

What they say
“Greenbelt is an inspiring and fascinating celebration of social justice, breaking down barriers between those of faith and no faith. It’s not only good fun – it lifts the hearts of all of us who believe in a better world.”
“My first trip to Greenbelt revolutionised my view of the vitality of faith in the UK and I have been telling stories ever since. What a remarkable gathering!”
