More about this event

Participants will learn how to manage and deliver different scales of co-creation projects through practical activities, discussions and by exploring case study examples.  This one-day course will improve your practise and grow your confidence in delivering authentic co-created projects. The training day will focus on how you root beneficiaries voice, wants and needs across two key approaches to co-creation:

Artistic Co-Creation: Exploring project conception and commissioning processes, as well as embedding the agency and autonomy of everyone involved.

Operational Co-Creation: The governance approach to managing organisational steering groups, volunteer programmesm recruitment and strategic planning activities.

By the end of the day the group will have a number of applicable models and frameworks to apply to their own work with children, young people and community co-creation projects.
