A couple of friends and I have decided to organise a rather last-minute stunt to raise awareness about the Copenhagen talks on 6-18th Dec and The Wave march on Saturday 5th Dec.
We're calling on all buskers / musicians / street performers / out of work actors / photographers to take to streets in the lead-up, and instead of busking for money, to provide passers-by with entertainment and flyers to raise awareness. Hence the (borrowed) name, "Keep your coins, we want change!"
The aim is to try and inspire a decentralised thing where people can just go and do it in whichever town or city they live on whatever day they're free. However, we also want to gather a group of people in London on the weekend of 28/29 November and spend an hour or so busking and spreading the word.
Although we are particularly looking for musicians, we also need flyerers and photographers. So noone is free from the invite. ;-)
If you are interested in helping, here are a few things you can do:
Sign up to the Facebook event
Follow us on Twitter
Add to our collaborative Spotify playlist of busking songs
Let me know if you can make it on the 28th/29th Nov
Spread the word!
As you may have guessed, this is a bit of an experiment. However, it also feels like something that could just spark an interest in the wider public, something that The Wave, and climate discussions drastically needs.
So, if you wanna get on board, get in touch, or forward this to all your friends!
