Overview

Programme Overview

 

This programme will introduce you to a process of Collaborative Creative Development: a strategic approach that brings together our personal, organisational and community development into one simple process. 

N.B. These programmes are run on demand in groups of six to ten people - please contact Arts in Development if you would like to join a programme or would like a bespoke programme for your group, organisation or community. 

Programme Objective:

To develop effective and inclusive collaborations that enable us all to create lasting change in our lives and communities.

Course detail: 

The programme explores the Arts in Development framework, which uses a basic development process to explore five simple questions. In each session we invite you to:

  1. Reflect - What do you want to achieve?
  2. Present - What are you working on?
  3. Clarify - What are you looking for?
  4. Suggest - What can you offer?
  5. Respond - What will you do next? 

In the first three sessions we use the framework to examine our personal goals, how we can support each other and what we can achieve together.  In the remaining five sessions we will explore each of the questions in more detail so that we can all build our capabilities together.   

Programme outcomes: 

The programme is designed to help us create a context for sustainable change in our lives and communities. 

Together we will build our capabilities in: Personal development; organisational development, community development, projects, networks, tools, research, practice and sustainability. 

The course will help us to create our own:

  1. Development framework
  2. Project
  3. Network
  4. Tools
  5. ‘Next steps’

Programme Duration. 

The programme consists of eight sessions, each taking up to 1½ hours. 

These normally run over an eight month period including a monthly webinar. 

Bespoke programmes are also available on demand - contact Arts in Development for more details.
