Moving From Awareness To Action

  • ME-working

This workshop explores ways to empower individuals and groups to move from disengagement and complaint to setting agendas and actively participating in decision making, policy making and evolving practice for public sector service provision.

Media Education uses participatory video as a means for people with lived experience to take action and influence the policy and practice affecting their lives. The workshop offers a mutual learning experience which uses our experiences as a starting point.

The social aspect of gathering together is important to us too, so please join us afterwards for lunch.

Who sets the agenda?

Who decides the process?

How can we best act on the voices that are heard?

How can we maintain trust?

How can the process be sufficiently intrinsically and extrinsically rewarding – on people’s own terms?

How can we ensure sustained change?
