Friday 11th September 10.00-22.00

Kinder Communities Day @ The Leeds Festival of Kindness Compassion and Wellbeing

Multiple events celebrating the theme of Kinder Communities, part of a range of events making up the week long Festival of Kindness, Compassion and Wellbeing.

Kindness and Compassion form the ground in which personal, public and community wellbeing can flourish.

With the effects of the pandemic, economic uncertainty and the issues raised by Black Lives Matter weighing on us all, there is no better time to come together to share and celebrate the hope that the making acts of kindness, taking place within our city of Leeds in the UK and the wider world, represent.

On Friday 11th September we will be celebrating the theme of Kinder Communities in the broadest sense.  We have a discussion between a group of small local organisations exploring how we can become Kind Connected Communities and there are two opportunities to take part in a Kind Listening Circle   Later on in the day you can join with singer-songwriter Melissa James of Sing4Sane, hear from Mama Na Moto Mother and Baby Project and round off the day by coming together for the wonderful #TwitterDisco!

Reserve your virtual seat today, and do check out our ‘Six Ways to a Kinder World’ in the full events timetable at kinderleeds.org.  Our whole festival week will show how the good people of Leeds are nurturing KINDNESS TO SELF, KINDER RELATIONSHIPS, KINDER BUSINESS, KINDER SPACES, KINDER COMMUNITIES, and being KINDER TO OUR PLANET.

I have a background in performing arts and teaching and have worked in the filed of learning disability for 17 years, initially teaching drama and dance, then working for Mencap and going on to work for a charity in Leeds where I am currently Head of Learning Disability Services (which include a day service and community cafe). I have been involved in many exciting projects over the years ranging from community theatre to helping establish a local farmer’s market. I’m a great believer in what can be achieved by people and communities coming together to make wonderful things happen: like this festival!
