East Marshian Chronicles Podcast: What’s Next? Bryn Phillips, Community Organiser

Find podcast here:

Community Organiser Bryn Phillips talks to Jack and Billy from the East Marshian Chronicles Podcast.

Bryn talks about bringing organisations together to build civic power – including here in Grimsby. He speaks of the important issue of where the money comes from in terms of a self-determining group of citizens. In particular, Bryn discusses crucial issues around power in community organising – “Power is at the heart of what we do” – and people coming together to determine their interests shared in common.

In particular, Bryn reinforces the idea that social relations are everything and references Aristotle’s dictum: “Whosoever is delighted in solitude is either a wild beast or a god.” We’re all connected folks, and we need each other – and that’s both beautiful and liberating!
