Find out more about the Liberating Structures approach as we use it to explore the festival.

About this Event

Sparkfest has been designed to provide opportunities to delve more deeply into the experiences, outcomes and workings of the Fire Starter Festival. As part of work for Collective Leadership for Scotland we have been exploring “How can the arts and creativity support system change?”

This morning session will focus on Liberating Structures as a facilitation method. Liberating Structures was one of the most popular events of this year’s festival. Liberating Structures are facilitation methods that help include and engage everyone and challenge elements that stifle true creativity and innovation. Find out more about this approach as we use it to explore the festival.

This 3 day mini-festival will:

• Provide background information and data on the Fire Starter Festival

• Review our inquiry into how the arts and creativity support system change?

• Reasons to get involved? This will include feedback from former hosts.

• Case studies of events including: partnerships, methodologies, and examples of when things didn’t go to plan.

• Workshops and taster sessions on how to plan and facilitate engaging events including methodologies such as: world café, fishbowl, forum theatre, dialogue walks, street wisdom and liberating structures.

• Consider the potential reach and growth of the festival
