ROADS OR RELATIONSHIPS?

Facilitated by Nick Gardham of Community Organisers and David Robinson of Shift Design

“It is the mission of this government to unite and ‘level up’ across the whole UK” – Boris Johnson, 15 July 2021

There is a big commitment for Government to tackle the disparities between places through the ‘leveling up agenda’. New infrastructure, businesses, and factories to tackle the widening gap between communities. But it is the relationships between people in a place that is just as important as the new industrial developments.

Join us for a conversation about how we make the case for strengthening the social fabric of communities so that leveling up can be just as much about relationships as it is roads.

THE POWER OF STORIES

Facilitated by Alice Toomer-McAlpine

The growing neighbourhood response is fostering a deeper sense of place – new relationships and connections between local people are being formed. Assumed ‘unmet’ need is being addressed as people who previously knew each other and broaden their circles to include neighbours that they previously had not known, hence developing a renewed sense of care and neighbourliness.

But how do we ensure the stories that emerge from these new connections can be told powerfully so that they can be heard and they can be learned from?

Join us to explore how we can look at effective frameworks for storytelling used by those involved in community organising to build bridges between groups, connect people and build power.
