a short discussion document, towards an upcoming (soon!) past tense social and discussion:
where do we want Past Tense to go?
“I Understand But I Don’t See It”
Past Tense has existed for some 14 years now… In that time we have published about 50 pamphlets, 4 books, and a handful of posters, maps, postcards, leaflets and a songsheet… We have, if you add in the work of the associated South London Radical History Group and other offshoots/contributors, variously also organised a number of talks, discussions, the occasional action, 20 (give or take) radical history walks, taken part also in some mapping exhibitions and film showings… Along the way we have helped to inspire some other groups (some of which have become hugely impressive projects, way outstripping us in size, scope and vision). We have had some fun, as well as, we hope, making ourselves useful.
Every now and again you need to have a good hard look at what you’re doing.
Contributions and suggestions welcome…
