Centred on the ground-breaking work of SMK’s Power Sharing project, this three-hour workshop is led by Grace Wyld, the project’s initial researcher, with contributions from project members to share their experiences.
What does it mean to be able to drive change? What do people need, in terms of resources and capacity to be able to drive change?
The Power Sharing Project critiques the power that is wrapped up in civil society’s campaigning work, and what it would look like if civil society was better at sharing that power – particularly with people who have lived experience of poverty and socio-economic inequalities – in pursuit of social change.
- Understand the needs of those who bring their lived experience to bear on their campaigns.
- Develop an understanding of how and why those with lived experience should be central to any campaign and methods to ensure that.
- Understand their own power and how to ensure that they are sharing that in an inclusive manner.
Who is this three hour workshop for?
- Anyone working with people with lived experience and seeking to centre them in their campaigning work.
- Those seeking a deeper understanding of the power dynamics that exist within civil society and how these affect the work done by campaigning organisations.
- Senior executives and board members of organisations looking to better understand why and how to give their power away.
