This workshop aims to enable and support the co-production movement in Scotland to become better connected and understood. The idea is that we come together and develop some shared approaches and practices, working towards eventually generating at least 100 stories.
There were great conversations and ideas at the first workshop in November 2016. We want to keep this storytelling momentum going forward.
In the true spirit of co-production we are keen to co-produce this idea with as many people as possible, inviting people and organisations of all scales and from many diverse sectors and communities to join us at this second event. We are seeking those who actively shape co-production and co-design movements (and we appreciate you may not be using those exact terms!), those who have strengths in storytelling, or those who would benefit from being able to see real examples of co-production in practice.
The idea is that we can come together and develop some shared approaches and practices, working towards eventually generating at least 100 stories. This could offer a powerfully convincing set of evidence that could help to strengthen the understanding of a variety of influencers, including the public, politicians and the media. This, in turn, could develop the shape and tone of future local and national conversations about reform, power and other themes, helping the wider public service system to become more courageous in risking opening up, work more transparently and share power with citizens more creatively and more often.
