Social Justice & Systems change
Lou found this from new Marmot Covid review:
"There is an urgent need to do things differently, to build a society based on the principles of social justice; to reduce inequalities of income and wealth; to build a well-being economy that puts achievement of health and well-being at the heart of government strategy, rather than narrow economic goals; to build a society that responds to the climate crisis at the same time as achieving greater health equity"
Today Sapphire is at a virtual conference:
Connecting 1:1 with vulnerable participants to enable, develop and create collaborative projects.

Networking and developing relationships especially in relationship to digital platforms from local to international level.

To have time is a wonderful thing and lockdown can provide that, as can Sapphire's new role in Shallal!
Welcome to Sapphire and we are so looking forward to the wonderful things which will grow from this mutual opportunity.
Thank you to Barbara Santi, Reaching Communities, Rank Foundation and our Trustees for enabling this to happen.
Happy New Year to everyone (despite the challenges and hardships of another lockdown)
We hope we can learn further resilience, adaptability, community and strength and use the time to renew systems for positive change.
So much is going on across Shallal, i had hoped to post our end of term newsletter, compiled by Phoebe, but it's proving challenging, so if anyone would like a copy, please email me or Phoebe: firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
Liskeard group made the move into Zoom provision this term and it was so enjoyable to join in their first session and see friendly faces, dancing outdoors, in care homes and front rooms.
New people join us, as well as old friends.
Friday afternoon Art & Production Zoom hosted our first Film& Video support group ( with Barbara and Lou) and we hope a lot of short experimental work will be supported and enabled from Shallal artists.
