#TinyRevolutions – doorstep connections
from Sarah Dickenson, writer & dramaturg
Front Doorstep Teas
People who live on streets or have neighbours along a balcony, arrange a front doorstep cuppa on a daily basis at a certain time (eg 3.30pm) to have a chat and see one another face to face.
Other variations (remember strict handwashing before leaving objects for others!)
Non self-isolating neighbours leave cakes on the doorstep for others to take or a different treat every day.
Daily street poetry/book readings: neighbours on their doorsteps read something they’ve enjoyed that day/ that they love.
Inspired by Italy, a daily sing-a-long. We make some song sheets and find some karaoke tracks we can play from the windows and have a street sing along.
A dance off, exercise-off, sing-off.
