CreateROSS in Ross on Wye

Street Wisdom - we still have a baker in town

by Caroline Utting A group of people arranged to meet at Ross Market Place 10am on a chilly Saturday in March. Only one of them really understood what they would be doing. The others had come with an open mind and a willingness to participate. They had been persuaded that it was worth dedicating a few ...

A Joy To Be Involved. A Joy To Help Out.

RSA Street Wisdom March17

There is something very special about taking part in a Street Wisdom and it is even more pleasurable to have the privilege to lead an event. It never fails to have an impact in some way on everyone involved and sometimes that impact can be profound. It is incredibly rewarding to have the opportunity to ...

Street Enlightenment with the RSA

RSA Street Wisdom Sept 2015

The extendable fire ladder was dreamed up there in the 18th century. And the life boat. They were the first to champion education for girls in Britain and (as early as 1770) the control of air pollution. The RSA - or to give it its full and wonderfully wordy name, The Royal Society for the ...

Riccardo’s story Carnaby Street July 6 2015

Street Wisdom London July 2015 © stephen cotterell photography 13136

My experience with Street Wisdom was enchanting. As a student just entering second year, full of unresolved commitments and ambitions, my venture down Carnaby Street taught me the importance of clarifying the next action to every project. Beyond this, Street Wisdom offered me an entirely refreshing perspective of my surroundings, causing me to be more observant of ...

Victoria Fenton – Street Wizard, Covent Garden, 6th May

Shaun the Sheep in Covent Garden

My journey with Street Wisdom began with a childish giggle when I arrived in Covent Garden on Wednesday 6 May to be greeted by a giant, luminous pink Shaun the Sheep statue, covered in painted confectionery. Though my day ended with me shivering, damp and buffeted by the Great British weather, the time between these two ...

Ian Cooper – Soho Square 26th March 2015

I’d have to put myself forward as one of those people who is somewhat sceptical about some (most) of those ‘out there’ concepts and techniques. My wife’s best friend had been a Bowen Therapist for quite some years before I would let her near me despite a catalogue of niggles, aches and pains. I eventually ...

Maggie Butcher from St James’s Piccadilly

Jermyn Street

Although I had some idea of what might be involved, I found the experience, under David’s sensitive and kindly tutelage, both more enjoyable and certainly more profound than I expected. Told to ‘go towards what attracts you’ on Jermyn Street seemed like hedonistic licence, and I did indeed wander into a well-known emporium for a spot ...

Lyme Vegas January 9th 2015

Lyme Regis Street Wisdom

We were 7 people and one leader - Chris Baréz Brown, one of Street Wisdom's uber inspiring founders. Rhik Samadder from The Guardian, ...

Street Wisdom features in The Sunday Times

When Street Wisdom was conceived, we realised very quickly that its success was only possible if those that participated shared their enthusiasm for it both by facilitating their own events and also by talking about it afterwards. We see Street Wisdom as a 'movement' and, as with any political or social movement, we need people ...

Trafalgar Square, May 23rd 2014

The Street Wisdom crew gather in Trafalgar Square

Our BIG Street Wisdom event to mark the climax of "Wisdom Spring" was amazing.   Huge thanks to Georgina and of course our generous, Street Wiz volunteers who guided the groups through their experience.    A crowd of new-comers showed up as well as past 'grads' who were returning to go deeper and further.   As usual there were ...

London street inspiration

'When can I go away again?' For many of us, that’s the first question we ask as soon as we arrive home from vacation. Holidays are important to us. So important our national investment in holidays continued virtually unchanged right through the recent financial crisis. So in case ...
