Where would you want to meet your community?
From the project research team at IVAR
Last week we ran a session at the Co Ltd conference for community organising where the theme was building, bridging and bonding. We wanted to talk about the things community work can do to improve lives with a bunch of people who have loads of experience and an ear to the ground. Various events recently have made us think about how you bring groups together - particularly in diverse communities with different views - to tackle difficult problems and make sure people are heard. So we asked the Community Organisers what sort of spaces are needed for convening and how you might make those spaces inclusive.
