. 🔊🎶🔋Upcoming training with XRUK Sound and Power.🔋🎶🔊 In Feburary the XRUK Sound and Power team will be delivering a series of 4 training's covering the main areas of what we do. The aim of this is to onboard new members and to skill share with the wider movement. Whether you are a seasoned techy or just interested to learn more about the offerings you are welcome to attend. 👇Check them out below👇 A little about us. The XRUK Sound and Power team initially came together in the build up to the April 2019 Rebellion with the aim to provide the Rebellion with amplified sound at each of the sites and importantly the power to run them using renewable energy. We successfully achieved this and have done the same for every rebellion and many major actions since. Although we are based mainly in London, due to logistics, we have members from around the country that come together at rebellions. In between rebellions we provide support for actions and events, not just for XR but a wide range of social movements including, Fridays for future, BLM, Kill the Bill and Refugee Rights. The training's will take place on Friday afternoons throughout Feb in Clapton, NE London and last approximately 4 hours per session, with a chance to socialise and chat afterwards. Session details are as follows, please sign up to the telegram group for each of the sessions so that we can communicate directly and get an idea of numbers. 📅3/2/23, 1-5pm 🛺🎤Rickshaw and basic soundsystem training 🎤 🛺 https://t.me/+w0Xs5mIp4ZpjMDk0 We currently have 3 electrically assisted rickshaws with a 4th coming soon and are looking for more people to become proficient in their use. 🛺 Thunderbird 1️⃣ is a mobile soundsystem that many will recognise from XR actions. 🛺Thunderbird 2️⃣ is a mobile power platform that can carry sounds, projector or other. 🛺Thunderbird 3️⃣ is a flatbed transport vehicle for emission free logistics. 🛺Thunderbird 4️⃣ is yet to be decided......do you have an idea?
