This workshop will introduce you to Community Animation, an approach that is useful for anyone involved in clubs, groups or meetings in their community. Community Animation offers tools and ideas to ensure the quietest voices are included in conversations, friendships are formed, and connections are made between people. During this session you will have the opportunity to practice your skills in managing the energy of a group, understand relationships and include those who often get left out.
By the end of this workshop you will have:
• Developed your knowledge of how to support the development of a group, gathering or get-together
• Increased your confidence in managing the energy of groups, ensuring everyone is included
• Understood how to apply Community Animation tools and techniques
This workshop is delivered by Community Animation enthusiasts from across Gloucestershire.

You're Welcome Workshops
You’re Welcome is a ten-year plan set up by Barnwood Trust. It’s all about creating more welcoming and inclusive communities across Gloucestershire to help people do the things they enjoy, and get to know more people where they live. You’re Welcome is for everyone, from all walks of life, and that includes people for whom life can sometimes be tricky.

Join us for one, or a series, of workshops which are all designed to enable you and your community to get better connected with everyone who lives there. The workshops are open to everyone living in Gloucestershire and people working here, and are offered free of charge.
