The legacy of the Incredible Festival of Ideas.
A short film about the changes the Festival brought to the community and to the people involved.
A CELEBRATION OF CREATIVITY, KINDNESS AND
COMMUNITY ACROSS THE UPPER CALDER VALLEY
From Todmorden to Halifax,
Join us on the summer solstice weekend,
Thursday 21 to Sunday 24 June 2018
as we mark the first decade of Incredible Edible Todmorden
with our wonderful and unique Incredible Festival of Ideas.
FROM JUST ONE IDEA
TO A GLOBAL MOVEMENT….
Ten years ago, a small group of Todmorden folk had the radical idea of cultivating disused land around Todmorden, growing vegetables and herbs that anyone could harvest on small patches of unused land. And so Incredible Edible was born. The idea took root – pardon the pun – and a global movement was born, building community through growing and sharing food.
WHAT WILL BE
THE NEXT BIG IDEA?
Prepare to be inspired as you join us for our Festival of Ideas in our unique valley.
Dare to dream about a different future for the places that we call home.
Explore radical ideas in action including urban agriculture, community asset transfer, and much, much more.
And above all, imagine a society with kindness at its heart.
Placemaking conference curator Charles Campion of JTP, talk about making places that work for real people not just architects. Communities live, work and play in close proximity so it all has to right for them to thrive, because after all, whose place is it anyway?
The Incredible Festival of Ideas is brought to you live and kicking by a great team of volunteers and with the support from:
