Angela Fell has her feet in the soil of Wigan, UK. She is on the ground working with her neighbours and fellow citizens to re-member and reclaim community power. Uplifting people’s gifts, passions, skills, and knowledge is yielding new life and regeneration. Exploring new forms of partnership between citizens and our institutions is a next step already underway.
In this straight-talking conversation between Angela and Peter Pula, they name the disconnect from real life and community they see in the patterns and behaviour of our ‘democratic’ systems and the institutions, large and small, that reinforce those patterns to the detriment of individual, community, and ecological health.
What Angela shares is gritty, down-to-earth, and practical. Her story shows the way to climbing together out of poverty and injustice, how to look after the planet, the ground, and each other while having loads of fun doing it.
