Co-Creating Change: Let’s Talk About It.
Over the last few months the Co-Creating Change Network has hosted a series of informal conversations with brilliant people from across the country exploring ideas around co-creation: what works and just as importantly what doesn’t.
This February we’re continuing the conversation and we’d love for you to join us.
The link to the Eventbrite page is here. This event is now SOLD OUT. If you would still like to come please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be put on a waiting list.
Learning Conversation: Digital Co-Creation in an era of Covid
Tuesday 23rd February, 10am – 11:30am
The sheer physicality of how we work in the creative industries has been dramatically curbed over the last year due to Covid. The implications of this on co-created work is massive where interpersonal interactions and collaboration are key to making work, where ‘touch’ is so important and where being together in a space is the starting point for so much of what we do.
In this conversation we’ll be exploring what the shift to remote and digital delivery has taught us. We’ll be thinking about these questions:
- What aspects of delivering differently will we hold on to?
- What will a hybrid model of delivery look like and feel like for co-creators?
- What new skills, insights and learning could, and should we carry forward?
- How can we ensure the ‘new normal’ benefits from all we’ve explored, rather than discards it?
- Aurora Trinity Collective
- Co-creators on What If from Hunt & Darton and WasteNotWantNot
- Company Three
The panel will be chaired by Sarah Blowers, Interim Co-Creating Change Director, with contributions from Susanne Burns, Co-Creating Change Evaluator.
Susanne Burns has written an article, ”We are not in the room” Co-Creation in a Digital World: A Provocation. You may want to read this prior to the event to get a more in-depth idea of why we want to hold this Learning Conversation.
Based upon feedback from previous Learning Conversations, we want to provide more opportunity for discussion to take place between guests. As well as hearing from our panellists, part of this event will also involve splitting up into breakout rooms to chat about the questions above. There’ll be no pressure to participate in this if what you prefer to do is just listen. If you have any access needs we’ll do our best to accommodate them. There will be a live captioner on the day.
