Rebels with their hands in the air

Working groups

In light of Coronavirus almost all XR meetings in Bristol are now held online. Learn more about how to join here.


Actions

Actions can take many forms, from creative displays to rebelling on the streets. Our Actions Working Group works on the ideas and logistics behind the scenes. We’re looking for all kinds of different people to join the group and help us plan ahead.

Affinity Group Support

Affinity Groups (AGs) are small, motivated groups of rebels who team up to support each other on actions. The Affinity Group Support team helps AGs form and provides info and support to AGs. We’re a small and newly formed team, so could always do with more hands on deck!

Arts

The Arts Working Group communicates XR’s identity and articulates our messaging through banners, flags, block printing, street painting and much more. If you’re a muralist, street artist or graphic designer we’d love to hear from you.

Communities & Outreach

We build communities within XR Bristol as well as reaching out to local communities to work alongside other groups. The best way to engage people is to get out there and have a conversation, so we’re looking for friendly people to join the team!

Fundraising

We collaborate with other Working Groups to fundraise for their projects. By facilitating more spending across XR Bristol, Fundraising enables more action. We’re looking for people with creative fundraising ideas and the motivation to make them happen.

Hosting

The Hosting Working Group is all about making XR Bristol meetings happen. Where do they take place? How? What goes on in them? Hosting gets all this sorted. We’re always looking for more hosts, and people to run workshops and give talks in meetings.

Integration

Our main aim is to get people more involved in XR Bristol, in a way that suits them. We want to improve rebels’ journeys from their first meeting to truly feeling part of XR Bristol. If you’re interested in getting involved we’d love to hear from you.

Media & Messaging

We work on what we’re saying as XR Bristol, who to, where, why and how. We look after XR Bristol’s social media, newsletter, website and relationships with local press. There’s always more to do, so if you have flair for communications, we have a space for you!

Political

We focus on building working relationships and influencing our local authorities, particularly with the Bristol Mayor and Bristol City Council. We’re always looking for people with time, energy and organisational skills, as well as those with political insight.

Production & Design

We build 3D structures for rebellions, manage stages, sound and power kits, provide food and endless cups of tea and sort out logistics. We need people with hands-on, technical skills as well as organised people with a love of lists.

Regenerative Culture & Wellbeing (Regen)

We’re focused on wellbeing within the movement. During actions, Regen looks after rebels, making sure those on the frontline receive the support they need. We always welcome more members to the group – no specific skills or experience required.
