Z2K Celebration Event

On Thursday 16th January 2020 6pm-8pm, Z2K are excited to be hosting our first ever celebration event at St Anne’s Church in Soho. It is the first opportunity we have had to bring all that are involved with Z2K, from funders to volunteers to clients, to see our achievements from 2019.

This will also be an opportunity for us to showcase two of our most in demand workshops from 2019:

  1. James Hopkirk Photography Workshop
  2. Ice & Fire Theatre Production Workshop

Both are part of our Stepping Stones project, in partnership with South West London Law Centre and funded by the Big Lottery. Stepping Stones partnered with established photographer, James Hopkirk, and delivered a two day workshop using photography to enable people to tell their personal stories and experiences of accessing benefits and services. This work will be showcased during the event.

Moreover, the Ice & Fire Production is a participatory theatre group, using arts and creative activism to explore human rights stories through performance. We worked with Ice & Fire to help people to tell their stories using participatory models and multiple art forms. Four clients will be performing some of their work during the event.

As you can see, we will be starting by showing our first ever about Z2K video

A huge thank you to Theo Delaney, Tony Briggs, Ruth Barrett and Datshiane Navanayagam for their hard work, time and commitment to making this video for Z2K on a pro bono basis. We really are truly thankful and very excited to show all of our funders the results!

Staying true to the mission of our founder Reverend Paul Nicolson

Last Saturday, I was privileged to attend a memorial service for Z2K’s founder – the Reverend Paul Nicolson. It was a deeply moving occasion, with wonderful stories of Paul’s life from his children and tributes from colleagues in the many campaigns he was involved in. My kids will testify I’m not much of a singer, but even I got swept up in the rousing rendition of the Battle Hymn of the Republic – aka “Mine eyes have seen the glory”. Thankfully, the congregation of Tottenham’s St Paul the Apostle church was on hand to sing it the way it’s meant to be sung!

The Government has the evidence, they are choosing not to listen.

For years, the Government has had reams of evidence handed to them showing not only why the disability benefits assessments processes are simply not working – but also how they’re actively harming people. For too many who apply for health and disability benefits, they are met with barriers, hostility, and stigma, and are denied the income they’re entitled to.
