As part of a programme we are delivering for Birmingham City Council's Arts & Young People's Team, we are delivering a seminar that asks the question whether resilience can be accompanied by creative innovation.
The seminar asks whether we can improve ways of working, support service delivery and still achieve performance indicators whilst building in creative engagement - is the agenda all to much? It will be regionally focused with a particular emphasis upon Birmingham.
On the day we will look at partnership delivery based within local authority (fostering and adoption) and voluntary sector (refuge, homelessness, reparation) contexts.
The day includes open sessions with The People Speak, a creative collective that uses performance art, multi-media and technology to engage people in conversation and participation in fun interactive ways. The Talkaoke Table has been designed to be a fun and spontaneous talk-show. With everyone sat around the flying saucer of chat, it's the ideal format for engaging people in an interactive participant-led discussion. The host does not control the conversation rather he/she helps to facilitate the conversation. For more information see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lthH2eZugQ8
