Are you interested in co-creation?

Would you like to learn more about different approaches to the practice of co-creation? Are you curious about the possibility of meeting with other people working in co-creation on a regular basis?

If so, come along to our South East Co-Creating Change network event.

  • When: Friday 16 July 2021, 10.30 am -12.00 pm
  • Where: Zoom
  • Cost: Free

Brighton People’s Theatre is hosting this event to bring people in the South East region together to share examples of what works when co-creating, and explore the potential of, and appetite for a South East regional network of Battersea Arts Centre’s national Co-Creating Change network.

Outline of the event

The meeting is hosted by Naomi Alexander and Marina Norris, Joint CEOs of Brighton People’s Theatre. We will have presentations from:

Judah Armani, who runs his own award-winning public design studio, co-creating projects and partnerships for social impact. Please see and for more information.

Saad Eddine Said, an international creative director who specialises in intercultural co-creation in communities. He was most recently Director at HOME Slough, one of the South East’s Creative People and Places projects. You can find him on Twitter @saadeddinesaid

Both speakers will be talking about what co-creation means to them, their approach, and some examples of their work. There will be time for a Q&A.

Sarah Blowers from Battersea Arts Centre will introduce the national Co-Creating Change Network and why they are interested in developing the network so that it has a regional structure. Sarah has questions that she would like the participants to explore about what a regional network for the South East could look like and how it would work.

What is Co-Creation?

Battersea Arts Centre defines co-creation as:

Co-creation is a co-operative process in which people with diverse experiences, skills and knowledge come together and work in non-hierarchical ways to address a common issue.

A collaborative way of working which enables people and communities to be actively involved in shaping the things which impact their lives.

It shifts power, resource and ownership towards the people the work is intended to benefit, as opposed to the traditional ‘top down’ approach.

It encourages every individual to activate their creative potential and realise their own ability to make change.

What is the Co-Creating Change Network?

Co-Creating Change is a network and programme which explores the role which artists, cultural organisations and communities can play to co-create change together around the UK and beyond. Co-creation encourages every individual to activate their creative potential and realise their own ability to make change.

It is run by Battersea Arts Centre.

What is Brighton People’s Theatre?

If all the world’s a stage, then theatre is for everyone. Curtain up. Come and play.

We believe the power of the arts can transform lives, build communities and improve wellbeing but we know not everyone has equal access to creative activities or that activities are designed with all communities in mind. We prioritise working with communities that have the fewest opportunities and co-design our activities with those communities. We enable professional and non-professional artists to co-create new shows.

Thanks to Battersea Arts Centre for asking us to host this meeting.

Brighton People's Theatre is a member of the Co-Creating Change network.
