Tuesday 7th July – Community Activism
(This event has concluded) Have you brought people together while we’ve been kept apart? What has it meant to you, or your community? Has activism changed forever, and how do you want it to be in future?
Life has changed, work has changed, we have changed. But can we learn from our experiences? How can we use what’s happened to build the future we want to see? What are the lessons from lockdown?
To answer these questions, we’re holding a series of online, facilitated conversations open to those who want to challenge the status quo, learn from each other’s discoveries, and influence what happens next.
Open to all activists out there! We’ll share the ways we’ve kept people around us inspired to act on the causes that matter to them, and how activism can still happen when we’re more restricted than ever.
How will it work?
Through a series of facilitated discussions via Zoom. We’ll start things off with a short presentation for context. We’ll then move on to a series of reflective questions, posed to small groups in facilitated breakout rooms.
What’s in it for me?
Sharing experiences, and listening to those of others, can be both affirming and activating. Our aim is through hearing and telling our collective experiences we bring what is possible into a greater awareness to inspire and create collective action and social change.
We can contribute to a social movement that builds more equal and connected services and communities in Wales. We will be reporting back on the cross-cutting themes that emerge from the Lessons from Lockdown discussions.
When is it?
July 7th, 2020. 1:00pm – 2:30pm.
