Don’t stop believing
We’re really excited to finally take the dustsheets off our brand spanking new podcast and show you what we’ve been working on. So welcome to Somewhere To Believe In. After all, you can’t come to us this summer, so we thought… maybe we could come to you?
Each week we’ll meet brilliant guests and chat to them about their life and work, using extracts from our talks archive to spark ideas and great conversation. Hosted by Paul and Katherine from our festival team, Somewhere To Believe In will bring you timely, provocative and funny dollops of hopefulness, to keep us all going in these strange times. The first episode will be available from all good podcast establishments this Friday 10th July.
We’ll also be digging into our love of fields, festivals and communal gatherings – remember those? – and sharing some of the behind-the-scenes Greenbelt stuff. There will be plenty for Greenbelters to get your teeth into, from looks back to plans for the future. Importantly, too, we want to hear from you, whether you’ve danced in a field with us recently or not. We’d love to hear what you’ll miss this summer at Boughton. Get in touch and let us know what else you’d like us to talk about.
We’ve always been about making spaces where the arts, activism and belief can come together from around the world, and (hopefully) change it for the better. While the festival is the main space where this happens, it’s not the only one. Greenbelt’s always been more than just four days in a field. It’s a way of seeing – and living in – the world. A podcast seems like a chance to bring some of this to you this summer.
Our plan is to release this first series of eight episodes this summer – with a new episode coming out each Friday in July and August, leading up to our festival weekend (see below for more news on that).
Alternatively, just search for ‘Somewhere to Believe in podcast’ wherever you get your podcasts from and you should find us. Remember to subscribe, so you don’t miss an episode.
We’ve called it ‘Somewhere to Believe in’, because as ever (maybe more than ever) we all need that right now.
We really hope you enjoy it.
