Event description

Description

Join us at the Creative Sharing Summit to explore how sharing resources – our space, skills and stuff – can empower communities to work together to become more than the sum of their parts, providing more opportunities for people to connect with each other, culture and the arts, and become more resilient and dynamic.


Keynote Speech:

Rachel Laurence: New Economics Foundation


Case Studies:

Homebaked Community Land Trust

...

Neighbourhoods That Work

Norwich City Council's Community Enabling Team

Further information about case studies below...


Workshops:

An afternoon of workshops will connect people to explore how we can work together to share resources that will help improve the places we live in. The workshops will be facilitated by a range of people with knowledge and expertise in different areas, who can provide advise and support as ideas flow.


Market Place:

Displays by local organisations already using a sharing approach will show their work and enable conversations to help us all learn more.


Aims:

  • To discover the benefits of sharing
  • To share practical case-study experiences for inspiration
  • To bring people together to share ideas and make connections for real-life actions

This event is a follow up to the Creative Workspace Summit of 2018 and the Creative Centres Summit of 2019 and will be of interest to:
local residents, artists, creatives, students, budding entrepreneurs, and anyone interested in creating vibrant and dynamic town centres and high streets.



Keynote Speech:

Rachel Laurence from the New Economics Foundation will introduce ways of approaching community-led economic development, starting from the basis that social, environmental and economic outcomes are equally important.
