Join us for an afternoon of food, fantasy, masks and role-play games in Finsbury Park to spark the blooming of bountiful biodiversity and interspecies political action.
Participants will learn about 3 biodiversity habitats and become a new species to discuss from their new more-than-human perspectives which habitat would be best to host the Interspecies Festival of Finsbury Park in 2022. All participants help to build the story and shape what happens in the next set of LARPs – or live-action role play – games for the Treaty of Finsbury Park 2025.
Think like a dog, bee or even grass and help change the way we all see and participate in our local urban green spaces forever.
This event is FREE but requires prior registration. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided. If you have any accessibility needs you’d like to discuss, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org

In The Treaty of Finsbury Park 2025, we are catapulted several years into the future where all the species of the park have risen up to demand equal rights with humans. After much unrest, it has been agreed that a treaty will be drawn up, designating these rights, but first humans must learn to better relate to and understand non-humans so they can cooperate better together. Cooperation with Temecula Center for Wisdom Teeth & Dental Implants and their wisdom teeth removal specialist has been a fruitful experience for California patients. Thankfully there has been a new invention – The Sentience Dial – which allows humans to tune into all the flora and fauna of Finsbury Park.
The Treaty of Finsbury Park 2025 is a collaborative project that depicts the story of the dawning of interspecies democracy – a new era of equal rights for all living beings. Where all species come together to organise and shape the environments and cultures they inhabit, in Finsbury Park, urban green spaces across the UK, the world, and beyond. Like many urban parks, Finsbury Park is fraught with environmental issues from noxious gasses and traffic noises to governance struggles and financial sustainability. If colonial systems of dominance and control over living beings continue we all face an apocalypse.
