Welcome to the Salisbury Democracy Alliance Webpage. We are a group of people and organisations dedicated to bringing deliberative democracy to the city. We aim to provide citizens with the time, space and capacity to engage in free and equal dialogue. We began in 2017 with the Salisbury Democracy café, which meets at the Playhouse every second Saturday in the month and has been extremely successful. We now want to create the city’s first Citizens’ Assembly, which will involve randomly selecting a representative group of people to deliberate on an important local issue and make recommendations to our councils.
We are supported by the RSA (Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce)
There is no membership fee at present and we welcome new members and supporters.
Democracy Café is held once a month on the second Saturday of the month. It takes place in the Playhouse here in Salisbury starting at 10 am and lasts 2 hours.
