About The Cost of Living

Change doesn't trickle down.
Change rises up.

We all know that a better world is possible. We all know that a better world is not inevitable.

We don’t know which way it is going to go. We don’t know if we can make a difference, but it’s our world and we need to start somewhere.

The Cost of Living is about how to be part of the change you want to see in the world. It’s about joining and being part of something larger than yourself - the optimistic, dogged and relentless task of making the world we want to live in. Wales is a nation of changemakers: organisers, thinkers, activists, connectors, planners, do-ers. This is our time.


A three-part experience taking place over an afternoon and evening. You can choose to join us for some of it, or all of it.

Part 1: Counting the Cost of Living

Join us for conversations with our guests and speakers to navigate and dissect the ideas behind the cost of living at our Dinner for Change experience, prepared by experts of themselves.

Part 2: Joseph K and the Cost of Living

Our production of Joseph K and the Cost of Living; a reimagining of Franz Kafka’s The Trial.

Part 3: F**k the Cost of Living

Raise your voices and join us to sing about the change that is coming, the change that we are making and hoping to make.
