Join us on Thursday afternoon to learn how to access the urban environment and find fresh answers to your personal or work-related questions with Street Wisdom: a powerful, three-hour guided experience that uses the streets as an invisible university. This inspirational tool has been adopted by corporations, coaches and social groups across the globe – with profound results.
We’ll meet in Camden Passage, a picturesque car-free street in Islington (Angel Tube) filled with vintage and contemporary shops and cafes. It’s steps away from the main street and near a park, too, making it the perfect environs to help you discover your own Street Wisdom! After we’re done we’ll gather at a local pub/cafe to share our experiences.
What is it? At the centre of Street Wisdom lies the idea that every moment is extraordinary and every street is full of inspiration – that there’s no such thing as an ordinary street, just ordinary thinking. Few of us give ourselves time or permission to really focus on the signs and signals that we normally ignore, rich stimulus that can help us learn something new.
In just three hours of walking and wandering, participants have resolved problems that have dogged them for years, found new business ideas, changed careers, discovered new directions, and learned how to deal differently with life and love.
Invented by creative maestro David Pearl in 2013 and developed with the help of business beatnik and fellow author Chris Baréz-Brown, Street Wisdom has rapidly grown into a global movement. Our mission is to make every street in every city a free source of inspiration for everyone, every single day.
Who is it for? It is relevant for anyone struggling with the day-to-day personal stuff, tackling a challenge in the workplace, figuring out what’s next, or seeking a creative breakthrough. Once experienced, it can be easily replicated on a personal basis, or taken into the workplace and used to inspire teams and colleagues.
What do you bring? An open mind, good walking shoes and clothes for all weather. A question you’d like answered: not too big (‘What is the meaning of life?’), not too small (‘What shall I have for lunch?’) but somewhere in the middle – a burning issue to which you’d like fresh answers.
Please watch the short video below and reserve your place so we can keep you updated – if you are unable to come at the last minute, you must contact the organiser so they may give someone else the chance to take part.
