Overview

An invitation to contribute to 

Sustainable social change. 

 

A programme for people that want to create lasting change in our lives and communities. 

The programme will help you to contribute to sustainable creative development across the community. 

We will create our own programme with every contribution helping to inspire further development. 

Together, we will explore key questions such as :

  • How can people live creative lives?
  • How can places become enabling environments?

For each question we invite you to contribute your own 

  • Reflections on your own experience
  • Examples that help us explore the question
  • Questions  to help clarify and contribute to our discussions. 
  • Suggestions to build our next steps.
  • Responses to suggest with our next step towards sustainable social change. 

Everything you contribute will help to create: 

  • An ongoing enquiry into how we can realise the creative potential of our communities. 
  • An increase in capability across the community  
  • A growing resource to facilitate sustainable social change.
