Event description

Description

Up for a changing game?

Join us for a collaborative afternoon creating, sharing, experiencing and adapting creative approaches to facilitate and drive social change. Bring along some ideas/games or just come with a blank notebook and open mind, this is your workshop!

What is ChangeGamers? And why does it exist?

Change agents need inner resilience, stronger networks, creative approaches, versatile tools, patience and a large dollop of humour to help transform & build cultures, mindsets and power relations.

ChangeGamers brings together creative facilitators and front-line change agents, like you, to develop and promote new ways to enhance positive outcomes around inequality, injustice and exclusion.

Why playing for a change?

Play helps drive change because it enables us to step away from the markers of our identity which reinforce the sense of difference. In this new space, we start to make connections with people we used to see as “other”. Play breaks down barriers and builds bridges.

Objectives:

  • Sharing and examining professional contexts, dilemmas and ideas

  • Creating, adapting, exploring and testing creative facilitation tools

  • Experiencing a work-in-progress

  • Engaging with like-minded practitioners

  • Ending the week in a fun, creative and constructive way

Who is this for?

Change Agents and creative Global Citizens who are working to achieve positive change in any sphere, particularly in support of the More in Common and Hope Not Hate movements.

Process and Hosts

We believe in the principle of collaboration for co-creation and shared learning.

Our objective is to run monthly meetings. The host (Chief Playtagnonist :)) is Lesley Adams (see more on Lesley's background below), gamely supported by playologists - Toby, Carol, Anita, Jon and Gaynor - ChangeGamers active in many areas of social change and justice, and by equal number of creative artists and therapists. A truly amazing mix!
