Empowering communities and making change happen – 9 March 2016, NCVO, London

Posted on March 8 2016 in Events

We are running a policy seminar with the Department for Communities and Local Government and National Council for Voluntary Organisations, supported by the Economic and Social Research Council.

The aim of the workshop is to share the emerging findings from the Imagine Project and to stimulate thinking, particularly around policy implications and impact. What important insights from particular places and communities could help shape policy approaches to community policy at a national and local level?

Due to limited spaces, this event is by invitation only.

The format of the event will be small-scale conversations with people in communities who have been doing the research.

There will be a series of round table discussions on:

Communities in control or left in the lurch? Facilitator: Sarah Banks

Beyond sink or swim: What are the challenges and potentials of co-production to build resilience from childhood to adulthood and to empower marginalised groups? Facilitators: Angie Hart and Suna Eryigit-Madzwamuse

How can we use culture and history critically and creatively to inform future imaginings and development of communities? Facilitator: Paul Ward
