Event description

Description

You are warmly invited to take part in the Productive Margins Festival!

Running since 2013, Productive Margins is a 5-year collaboration between English and Welsh community organisations and the Universities of Bristol and Cardiff. Our starting point is that the people and communities that have been excluded from participating in decision-making actually have the expertise, experience and creativity to be politically productive. Productive Margins focuses on co-producing new ways of envisioning regulation that better involves communities at the margins in regulatory processes and practices. Together we shift debates from the regulation of engagement to regulation for engagement.

Productive Margins has been working on some of the big questions that we face collectively: mapping, making and mobilising with young people; Muslim engagement in decision-making; isolation and loneliness among older people; regulation and food habits across diverse communities; and low-income families’ urban experiences of poverty and immigration regulation. We do this through a range of disciplines and approaches from the social sciences through the arts, engaging with policy makers and social enterprise throughout the lifecycles of our projects.

Join us for a full day of events at The Station on Thursday, 14 September! The day will showcase, question, celebrate, inspire and challenge us to think differently about how regulation can both constrain and enable communities. There will be films, performances, information stalls, debates and discussion panels. We’ll share what we’ve done so far, discuss some of the challenging questions that remain, and explore future opportunities and how we might make these a reality.
