The Change Collective
Sat, 22 Jul 2017, 10:00 – Sun, 23 Jul 2017, 17:00 BST
Do you watch the news or see things going on around you, and wonder what’s going on in your community, in your country, in the wider world?
Do you want to feel more hopeful, optimistic and inspired about making a difference in your world?
Are you confused about the way society, the economy or politics are headed and wonder how you could be more involved in how decisions get made?
Are you interested in exploring solutions to community problems alongside others who want to feel hopeful, optimistic and engaged in their worlds?
When things seem to be shifting all around us, it is important to be able to find some meaning and to make some sense of our thoughts and feelings amongst all the upheaval. It is even more important that we stay connected to others and not feel alone. Isolation, whether real or perceived, can only compound some of the heavy feelings we experience and make it harder to move on and come up with novel and life-giving solutions to what we are facing.
As challenging as it may seem, in every moment there is the possibility to create a better future for ourselves. This becomes easier to see when we are not alone; when we are in community with others who want to create something together.
If you are looking for a place to make sense of your world and to do this with others who are looking for the same thing, this workshop is for you.
In this experiential weekend workshop, we will explore, through the use of playful, creative and interactive methods, the issues that concern you. You will tap into your innate creative genius, which is the thing that can spark you to action around the issues that concern you as a global citizen.
The aim of this workshop is to help you to wake up to and explore the stories and processes that are alive within you and others, which are all around us, within our homes and communities, and throughout the planet.
Out of this shared examination and exploration can come greater understanding and hope. In community with others, we can develop greater ability to comprehend from a number of perspectives so that new shared solutions can unfold. After some understanding and meaning can come commitments to action and new solutions to things that none of us could have come up with on our own.
This is the power of group and community.
The workshop will marshall the collective intelligence and energy of everyone who attends, in order to help us focus on shared solutions to communal problems.
You can expect:
A meaningful, reflective, intercultural learning experience
Fun, laughter and activity
To connect with your creativity
Connection with others who want to explore, gain greater understanding and generate possible new solutions to shared concerns
