New Fables Collective

New Fables Collective

New Fables Collective

We are a collective of dreamers, deep thinkers and change makers, coming together within a reflective, restorative and regenerative space to explore our collective experiences, energies and intuition as racially-minoritised people. We channel our experiences to envision new ways of being that can be passed onto future generations.

We orientate towards three objectives:

Collective being

Holding space for care, being critical friends and feeding into our collective wisdom, experiences and perspectives, deepening connections, building trust and togetherness.

Collective sense-making

Exploring what we see, think and feel, and reflecting on our practice, learning and strengths we embody. Surfacing synergies together and delving into questions.

Collective envisioning

Co-creating ideas, exploring new ways of being and envisioning futures together. Driven by our hopes, immersed in our shared energy, and led by our intuition.

We look forward to sharing our stories with you on our blog, The Fireplace.

    The fonts used in the template are: PS Fournier: Light Reason New: Regular and Medium You’ll need to add these fonts to a new web project in your Adobe Typekit account and paste the Unique ID into the code below.

    If you don’t have a Typekit account you can rely on the chosen Google Webfonts as a fallback instead. They’re a pretty good match, here’s the difference:

4. Make sure you’ve done these things before you go live

Go live checklist
Change all links in the footer database
Check the favicon, update if necessary in the snippet code
Amend the meta description in the snippet code
Update the share image in the snippet code
Check that the Show or hide page properties option in Super settings is set to ‘Show’
Check that all navigation labels and links are correct and that they point to the right pages. Note, they do not automatically update when you amend page names or add new pages.
Add pretty links for your pages, projects, and articles into Super’s pretty URL settings. By default you’ll need to use projects/ and writing/, you can amend these if you want but you’ll need to add CSS overrides.

Our emerging themes

In Autumn 2020, we set up a series of discursive sessions to explore what we felt we needed from our new space and what excited us by coming together. Below are some of the themes that emerged from those conversations.
