A natter over a campfire with Maff Potts

The Camerados ‘When Life is Pants’ Tour is coming to Wolverhampton at the Gatis Community Space on Sunday 10th October!

Find out the story of Camerados in Wolverhampton…

Life has been pants lately, so what got you through it? The Camerados movement believes we can get through tough times better by looking out for each other in a particular and more human way. 

Come along to the first stop on the Camerados “When Life Is Pants” tour on Sunday. Have a chat with Camerados founder Maff Potts and find out more. You may be surprised how easy it is and how little you have to do to make a big difference for yourself and your neighbourhood. (And you can keep your pants on!)

Maff Potts is a custard cream fan and founded Camerados in his bedroom 6 years ago after 20 years running charities for people with very tough lives, advising the Government and even turning the Millenium Dome into a homeless shelter. 

This is a conversation about all the mistakes and hilarious things that happened when creating Camerados’ public living rooms from Baltimore to Blackpool, from NHS hospitals to the Brooklyn Bridge and some massive light bulb ideas that you can use too.

This isn’t the first time Camerados have been in Wolverhampton, back in August Camerados from Wolverhampton and from afar, came together to hang out on the streets, dance, chat and look out for each other as one of many locations of Camerados On The Streets activity

After finding out about the movement on the streets, a Wolverhampton local, got in touch with other local camerados and together, by September, they’d set up their first Pop-Up Public Living Room at Gatis Community Space!

Maria is a camerado living in Wolverhampton who was part of the Gatis Public Living Room. “I first came across Camerados through my work with Wolverhampton For Everyone and just totally loved the principles, they really resonated with me. So now I’ve experienced a Public Living Room I’m really delighted to be able to bring one to my community, we all need to be a bit more human!”

Now in October, Camerados founder, Maff Potts is making the first stop on his “When Life Is Pants” tour to have a natter with the good people of Wolverhampton.

Now more than ever, we all need to be camerados to each other. In a world which is so divided, we know that we’re stronger together and that places like this are needed. Spaces where everyone is welcome, and which are free from agenda and judgement.

Local camerados are setting up Public Living Rooms all over the world as spaces for folk from all walks of life to chat and connect, and it changes and saves lives. 

Pop along to the Gatis Community Space between 11am – 4pm on Sunday 10th October for the “When Life Is Pants” tour and find out more about the growing Camerados movement
