What Is Take a Stanza?
This is a creative petition, calling for a transformation to the money system based on debt. The concept is to create long reams of heart shaped bunting. Each bunting heart will have a message/poem written on it, by a member of the public, expressing a desire for a transformed banking sector.
This bunting will then be strung together on crime scene tape. The final plan is to wrap up the entire city square mile in this bun*ng in a symbolic action to encourage real positive change.
Wrap up the banks, or Rap up the banks…You can get involved in the campaign by:
- Wrapping up the banks:
You/your group can fill in your own petition bunting hearts and also sign up to the campaign database to get updates on all the creative activities we are planning.
- Rapping up the banks:
We are calling poets/artists/artist groups to get involved in the campaign. We ‘re asking artists to record their own creative messages, calling for a just banking system. We would also love for you to join us on the Action where we wrap the banking sector up in the bunting and have a festival as a demonstration.
**If you write or rhyme anything about a specific bank or banker then please insert a disclaimer to your piece.
