Disney Princesses as Event Coordination Roles

18 January 2016 - 11:00am

Take a look at these Disney Princesses as Event Coordination roles…


DF event coordination teams are made up of lots of roles, each with their own particular skills and responsibilities. So if the Disney Princesses were on a coordination team, who’d do what?

Co-ordinator: Mulan

If she can lead an army, she can lead a coordination team. On bigger events, sometimes you need an overall coordinator to generally keep an eye on things, and Mulan certainly has the confidence, charisma and leadership skills to keep a coordination team on track.


Admin: Belle

Studious and sensible, Belle makes a great admin. She has both the patience to check the membership database and the creative flair to make a gorgeous info pack.


Daytime programme: Ariel

Ariel has the curiosity and bright thinking to come up with an interesting and varied daytime programme, the sensitivity to consider things everyone will like and the determination to keep emailing people to get them to come.


Evening programme: Jasmine

As a princess, Jasmine has been to plenty of parties in her time, so she knows what makes a good one. She’s great at finding bands and performers to get the good times going when the sun goes down – but has a sensitive side that knows that noisy nights are not for everyone, and so makes sure there’s chill evening programme too.


Decoration: Rapunzel

With her artistic flair, Rapunzel is a natural choice for decoration. She knows exactly how to make a place look beautiful. 


Equipment: Merida

Outdoorsy and practical, Merida is perfect for the equipment job. She could work out how to put anything together, and her feisty personality and no-nonsense attitude means she could easily deal with marquee companies (and probably negotiate a free bell tent while she’s at it).


KP: Tiana

This one’s obvious, isn’t it? Tiana is an incredible cook with a passion for food, and knows how to live on a budget. With her as KP, you’d be sure to get an interesting and tasty menu – and she’d still have money to spare!


KP: Esmeralda

But KPing isn’t just about being an excellent chef. It takes a powerful personality to rally clans to action and keep a motivated atmosphere in the kitchen, and that’s where Esmeralda comes in. With Esmerelda in charge, no one will get away with ditching clan and meals will certainly be on time.


KE: Cinderella

As someone who has spent a large part of her life tidying, Cinderella knows how to get stains out of anything. Of course, it wouldn’t be fair to make Cinderella clean up after an entire camp – she’s had enough scrubbing for a lifetime  – but remember the KE isn’t actually the one doing the cleaning, it’s all about delegating to clans. Plus, her kind, patient nature means she can explain exactly how to sort the recycling and clean the toilets to everyone else.


Honorable mention

Events: Snow White  

She’s naturally organised and can delegate to others (look at how she convinced those woodland creatures to do her cleaning and tidying) and she can keep her head in her crisis (see convincing the 7 dwarves to let her stay despite her breaking in). Snow White is clearly Events Rep material.

7 Reasons You Should Coordinate A DF Event

17 January 2016 - 7:50pm

No. 3 may surprise you…

DF events are amazing. But they can’t happen without the coordination teams, who work on the event and for months beforehand to book sites, organise food, email bands and DJs, keep the place clean and tidy and make sure everything runs smoothly. Now, I’m not saying coordinating an event is easy: it can be a lot of work. But it’s definitely worth the effort. Nothing can match the feeling of satisfaction when the event goes to plan. Not convinced? Here’s 7 more reasons why you should consider coordinating a DF event.

1. Making new friends
Working as part of a coordination team means you’ll get to know other DFs from different parts of the country who you might never have spoken to before. And new friends is always a good thing.

2. Getting involved
Committee, First Aid, MEST-UP… there are loads of ways to get more involved with DFs on a national level and coordinating an event is one of them. Unlike the others, though, it’s a more short-term commitment, which can be great if you only like planning a few months ahead.

3. Giving back
Personally, DFs has given me a lot – incredible memories, fantastic friends and utterly unique experiences. If you feel the same and want to give back, and help the movement run so other people can enjoy these benefits, you could coordinate a DF event.

4. Boosting your CV
Event coordination gives you amazing skills to strengthen your CV. Team work, organisation, working to deadlines… Plus, not many other teenagers can say they have done catering for over 100 people! Event experience can make you really stand out when you’re applying for a job/course.

5. Developing your skills
Event coordination makes you try things you might never have done before and gives you skills you can adapt to your everyday life, as well as the confidence to use them. From my experience, KPing an event made me so much more confident in the kitchen and has helped me learn how to cook well on a tiny budget (very useful for university…), while making doctor’s appointments is so much easier after having called up site managers and silent disco headphone providers.

6. Challenging yourself
Love cooking at home but want to step it up? Organised a birthday party and want to try something bigger? Coordinating an event is something completely new to a lot of people and can be a really great way to stretch your skills and test out your abilities.

7. Using your ideas
Maybe you’ve had a great idea for a theme and want a chance to put it into action. Or perhaps you saw a great band you think would be perfect for Spring Awakening. If you’re coordinating an event, you can make it how you want it and use your own ideas and inspiration to make the event you’ve always dreamed of.

You don’t need experience – the Events and Shadow Events rep are here to help. If you’re enthusiastic and have some time to spare, you’re perfect for the job. Interested in coordinating an event? Still have questions? Watch these handy videos about what each of the roles does, and email

Direct Action 101

13 January 2016 - 4:00pm

The image of an activist will often be someone on the street, holding a banner or blocking the road. However, there is a lot of work done to help people do more effective protest and most of it is not visible. It is important to acknowledge the people who make it all happen and to acknowledge that activism is bigger than someone chanting outside a building.

There are so many roles to play, and everyone involved is an activist, from working all day at a laptop to running a creche. It’s also important to show that there’s lots of different ways of being involved in protest and different levels of commitment. Many people are unable to take part in a march or a blockade because they can be inaccessible; disabilities/impairments, mental health issues, concerns over the possibility of arrest, not having enough free time, not having anyone to go with, living far away, etc. but hopefully everyone can find an option that suits them.



First off, DFs could not have gone to Paris without the amazing support from people who donated to or advertised the crowdfunder. THANK YOU!



At big camps and protests, you might find kitchen teams working all day to provide delicious hot food to activists, paid for in donations or free for those who can’t afford it. There are lots of kitchen collectives about- in Paris they formed a wider network and there was food in different locations across the city. Having affordable food saves people time, money and stress which means they are free to use their energy in other ways.



Work needs to be done to communicate the message of the campaign to the public this can involve contacting the press ahead of an action, creating your own media, using social media, leafleting, etc. Lots also needs to be done to communicate with activists well, to advertise how to take part.




In Paris, there was an art space full of resources, where people could drop in and make banners or props for actions they were doing. Banner-making is also a good DF night activity!


Arrestee Support

If you are arrested, the arrestee support team can contact the right solicitor and when you are released, they can meet you from the station, perhaps with some tea and nice food. They could also contact friends or family for you to let people close to you know what is going on.


Legal Observer

Legal Observers are trained to know protest rights and they provide advice to activists, by handing out leaflets on your rights and what to do if you are arrested. They will try to hold the police accountable by documenting their actions and finding witnesses.

Green and Black Cross provide legal support to people on protests and afterwards. They have a 24/7 hotline and run Legal Observer training and Know Your Rights workshops throughout the year.

Upcoming Legal Observer training:

London on the 16th January, 10.30 – 16. 00

Leeds on the 31st January, 11.00 – 16.30



There are groups, like this one, set up to support people with their mental health. Some people struggle to cope with trauma experienced on protests or find themselves “burning out” (essentially losing motvation and disengaging from activism). Aside from listening to people one-on-one, they provide tips and resources on how to cope with things, like avoiding burn-out.



On protests, tensions with police can escalate situations. Some people work to de-escalate tension and to lighten the mood. Clowning works really well and looks fun. In Paris, there were people dressed as Angels who played a de-escalating role. Samba bands are really good because a) music is great and gives people energy, b) it is really easy to participate in and c) makes it harder for the media to demonise protesters as violent, especially if the samba band has dance moves and is dressed entirely in pink.


First Aid

First Aiders are always useful! There are Action Medics who attend bigger protests, with training focused on protest-associated risks.



Make tea for people who are locked on, make tea for people who are arrested, make tea for people in a kettle, make tea for the people tanding next to you. It helps keep you warm and is good for morale. A cycling team in Newcastle delivered cake and tea to people on picket lines and it’s a good way to show your solidarity.


Other roles include facilitating discussion, translating, organising social events, doing fundraisers, helping look after kids, and loads more cool, creative, important things.

(I’ve been talking about these roles in context of an event but it is worth bearing in mind that a lot of the most effective protest comes from long-term campaigns rather than one off days of action).

There is always something to do. Get involved + bring your friends!

DFs on D12

15 December 2015 - 11:47am

Saturday the 12th December was D12, the day of action for climate justice at the end of the COP21 negotiations, in order to have the last word on the deal.

Here are some photos to give you a little impression of what the day was like for us.

The Indigenous Ceremony leaving Notre Dame


The theme of red lines for the action is to show the lines that cannot be crossed in order to have a liveable planet. A represntative at this ceremony spoke on the bridge about how Indigenous people have survived and resisted so long and they will continue to survive and resist.


Cyclists around the Arc de Triomphe. The Arc de Triomphe is a monument to remember the unknown dead of war. This location was chosen to remember the unknown dead of climate change and to warn about how climate change fuels further conflict.


Capitalism enables continued forms of colonialism. COP21 is regarded as finding false solutions to climate change that deny people of their rights and their land. Earlier in the week, we learned about how resource-grabbing and displacement of peoples is justified as conservation.

Playing with the inflatable cobblestones


State of Climate Emergency: the protest ban due to the French state of emergency was defied by 15,000 people


Marching, chanting, singing, dancing and spooning under the Eiffel Tower



Expect more posts to follow, thankyous to everyone involved, our experiences of action, Woodcraft’s relationship with Indigenous peoples and a breakdown of the official COP21 agreement.

DFs at COP21

4 December 2015 - 9:52pm


Hi there my names Josie. I’m a semi competent waitress/not quite proper art student. The point I’m trying to make is I spend so much of my time feeling like I don’t have a clue. Least of all have a clue about mobilising a bunch of young people to the capital of a foreign country to carry out something similar to protest activity (actual protest activity banned during the state of emergency). And yet tomorrow I leave the cold and rainy city of Bradford for the I’m told equally cold and rainy city of Paris. After endless grant applications, the astounding generosity of the woodcraft membership and general public’s donations, more emails then I could possibly count, and a lot of packing, it’s finally here. I’d like to thank everyone that made it possible including the wonderful young people who are going, it’s mad that this is happening, and even madder that we made it happen.

I can’t shake the feeling I’ve forgotten something really important… I’ll let you know what it is when we get there because you can watch this space for more updates about what we’re up to.



one cancelled and two delayed trains later and we’re on the coach to Paris


Disoriented and tired we stumbled out of the coach and onto the streets of Paris. Said goodbye to our friends from the coach an hello to some new ones on the coach from London, who were staying in the same place as us. we arrive at our accommodation at 1ish. It is stunning. A disused hospital converted into homes and community spaces. I can’t believe the kindness of the people here. Despite how late it is we still manage to stay up talking climate politics for some time before retiring to the tents, which are luxurious. Photos to follow when em cons phone starts wanting to do that.

today we went to watch the indigenous rising action of taking canoes down a river, the banks of which are scattered with green washing bull from edf sponsored by evil corporations.

that afternoon we headed to the Artivism centre at the Jardin d’alice which is a fabulous hub full of creativity in lead up to COP21 actions. We found out about many creative actions designed to bypass the laws now in place due to the state of emergency. A ‘pay as you feel’ cafe is churning out great vegan food to feed the masses as they create and organised which had been greatly appreciate do.

There was also a meeting of youth delegations from around the globe working together to plan an action especially for youth. Discussions for a message they wanted to base the action on wasn’t easy with so many groups and opinions but it was great to see young people cooperating and trying to build youth participation and empowerment in the climate movement.

When the centre closed for the night we travelled back to our tent village and spent the evening with our new friends from People and Planet before getting some well earned kip.


we woke up feeling drowsy – environments like this can be very exhausting amidst all the excitement. We were happy to help ourselves to coffee upon arriving once again at the Artivism centre. Today’s big creation is a 100 metre long banner reading ‘it’s up to us to keep it in the ground’ which will be used later this week at D12.

its great to be in a space where we can support people with their projects and make good use of our time here. We’re slowly meeting more like minded people and it’s feeling very empowering to be part of the movement at this crucial time in history.

We’ve leant our hands, which are now covered in red paint from the start to the end of the creation of the humongous banner. I’ve really enjoyed seeing the project being managed by the fantastic artists here, who are so good at coordinating lots of volunteers and are great at sharing their skills and getting people involved.

(Pictures to follow when the Internet is good enough!)



Are you a woman who has worn trousers? Have you ever used contraception or been on strike? Taken a weekend off work or worshiped on your own terms? What unites us all is the rights we enjoy because at some point in history people broke the law in order to secure those rights. We have the right to a just and liveable planet. As D12 approaches we consider this in deciding what we do and who we support.



Today we went to the Louvre (ooh fancy) to take part in an action highlighting the sponsorship of the arts by climate criminals, such as Total and Eni. This sponsorship allows these companies to present a socially responsible image, whilst continuing their destructive industries. This PR move is called “greenwashing” and many companies are using this tactic, especially in the run up to the conference.

Inside the Louvre a group of activists left oily footprints through the gallery. Outside, people danced with black umbrellas, cheered on by your fave woodies. There were also people dressed as Climate Angels.


  • What do we mean by Climate Justice?

Climate justice is the goal of a liveable planet that has not only avoided catastrophic climate change  but has radically shifted global power structures. Most power currently lies in the hands of big businesses and governments, whose economic survival depends on their reckless exploitation of resources in the short term. Climate change will ultimately affect us all directly but we cannot to afford to think about climate change as abstract and  in the future, since it is already affecting lots of people all over the world.
Disproportionately impacted are people in high-risk areas, especially those in poverty, who are less able to protect their societies and infrastructure or to respond effectively after an event, by rebuilding or migrating, for example.  So existing inequalities only worsen a crisis. Climate change is not caused by the people who it is hitting first and hardest which is an injustice.

Climate justice as a concept applies an intersectional perspective on climate change, looking at who is responsible
and who is affected in what degrees. This analysis exposes power structures who profit from inequality. Fighting for  climate justice means we are not satisfied simply with halting climate change. It is important to redress power imbalances that allow corporations and governments to exploit resources and people.



Once upon a time, DFs went along to a weird corporate playground on the outskirts of Paris, We got lost in a maze of skyscrapers and then found are way to Total HQ.Total are a french company who are mining tar sands in Alberta, Canada. This is a process of extracting oil which devastates huge areas of land. Much of this land is the land of indigenous people, whose rights over the land and increasingly eroded as governments and companies scramble for resources.

Indigenous groups gathered outside the HQ with their banners for speeches and photos. Emotions were running high as yesterday we saw the first draft of the agreement exclude indigenous rights. You can listen to there words of inspiration and catch a fez glances of yours truly holding   check out this video for info


The DF Musical was a spontaneous action on the metro.

We made a friend who told us he was a superstar. Some people (the author included) were sceptical. This story is one of changing attitudes and emotional growth.

In respect to french culture, DFs purchased some beautifully cheap wine and wandered to the metro. It is not known who sang the first note, but what happened next was inspiring. We sang “Dancing Queen” followed by “The Final Countdown” followed by “Take A Chance” because it turns out, DFs are quite predictable. Some Parisian youths joined in and wow, how nice.

The dilemma stage of the story must come next, as we know. The superstar drifted from the DF group and joined the Parisian singers, arguably better. This shocking betrayal of trust is unprecedented and calls into question the very concept of loyalty.

In somewhat of a sulk, DFs started to sing the Diggers Song. Nice harmonies. Went to a party through a park with a dragon in it.

Then they lived happily ever after and stopped climate change.

How-to Wear an Instructional Lid

23 October 2015 - 9:09am

Minecraft is actually a family friendly title that’s all youngsters buzzing about people and its fun gameplay. With other goods inside the model area of shops that are important along with many games, Minecraft is really a recreation that is said to be enjoyed by participants of most ages. With having said that, a household welcoming machine is also anticipated each time a youthful participant gets on to benefit from the game. Jessemoforice, Reddit person, considered it’d be lovely to decide on a really offensive title, since he couldn’t record into his consideration, when he was angry. Using the title MojangSucksD*ck a couple of years before, he’s been using it until this week, without troubles. He believed this was pretty, as opposed to calling Mojang, which an endeavor isn’t mentioned inside the reports, is completely horrible to these people who’ve kids that play around the machines. If they captured his account title the creator was said to have now been examining a harassment problem. Once the charged signed into his account, he pointed out that the nasty title not met him he played and developed under for many years. In the place of seeing: “Welcome: MojangSucksD*ck” (which we censored due to its strong immaturity), it now suggests, “Welcome: NoWeDont”.

Appendices follow the bibliography or works cited websites.

The happening was, explained by Mojang developer Watson on Reddit. I was basically seeking [brands with the terms] %sucksd*ck, due to an unrelated record of harassment. Often we permit servers manage all moderation nevertheless it was a guardian and a child, and properly, I only covered some facets. I never did discover the login they noted (they couldnt recall the actual punctuation), but I did so discover this jewel. Happy OP was an excellent hobby about this. The awareness of Mojang was got by Jessemoforice in a lighting that was negative and, as opposed to being uncomfortable, he was content – go figure. Thus a few years before once I signed up for Minecraft, I attempted recording into a free account that presently endured, but could not go into it. For some reason I got irritated for this at Mojang and created a new account termed MojangSucksDick, that is what I’ve been using ever since.

For selling other sites or your locations remarks aren’t.

Yep… So anyhow I loggedon nowadays to find out my new name, try the bottom right. I considered it was comical because I truly appreciate Minecraft a lot and I do not also mind. Modify: here it’s Since a number of people want evidence: He also included another change that reported, “Woke up to get that my article had inflated, also to see Marc_IRL had commented about it! I seriously believed reddit will be pissed for this at me, therefore this was an awesome shock!” Thankyou for cleaning after the immature teen. Today, let’s just hope his parents observe what otherwise he is performing online. This really is assuming it is a young child or youngster because we would expect a grown-up might have treated it and called Mojang or simply created another user name, such as the rest of the typical populace.

Types of Union Part 2 – Sector Specific Unions

4 October 2015 - 10:45pm

Sector specific unions (not sure if that’s the right technical term but it describes what they are pretty well) are for those in jobs within specific industries, professions and even specific companies! Of course they come in all shapes and sizes…

Fairly general

A good example of this is Unison, the second biggest union in the UK. It is solely for public sector workers. Although not hugely militant, it is often present at demos and is (unsurprisingly) great at specific rights within the public sector.


Another fairly similar one is PCS, the Public and Commercial Services union. It largely consists of civil service and private sector workers.  With around 220,000 members it’s another biggie!


Fairly Specific

One of our affiliates among unions is CWU! As their name (Communication Workers’ Union) suggests, their members are in the communications industries such as post and telecoms, but also in the financial sector. They are incredibly cool, for example they are currently running a campaign “People’s Post” about retaining public control of the post service. If you look on their website you’ll see links to specific industry related issues which exist to a much lesser extent in the more general unions.

The RMT are an example of a militant sector specific union. They are public transport workers and so you can thank them for tube and rail strikes! (which are great because those workers are often treated terribly). Another very militant union is the FBU, Fire Brigade’s Union, who go on strike loads and are really cool!

Many public sector professions have quite specific unions, for example teachers (NUT and NASUWT being the main ones), college and university lecturers in UCU, and midwives in the RCM (they had their first ever strike in 2014). However, medical workers’ unions are often one and the same with the body they have to be a member of in order to practise the profession (Equity for actors works in the same way, weirdly).

The list goes on! There are unions for practically every profession, the TUC’s list of unions is a good place to start looking if you wanna find one for you.


Super Specific

Some companies have a union just for their workers; these are mainly banks and financial organisations, but worth looking up to see if there’s one relevant to you.


Unions have strong links to Woodcraft Folk as an organisation, and in DFs we’re trying to work to rebuild that relationship with our own age group. So this article is part of a month long celebration of unions in the build up to “DFs join a union” week, 12th-18th October. Last week’s was about general unions, and these two articles would be a great place to start when you look to join a union next week!
