Your Invitation to our Community Conversations and Skills-Sharing Events 2019-2020
We wanted to share this work in a way that both demonstrates our purpose, and builds our relationships with each other. With this in mind, we are hosting a series of open Community Conversations over 2019-2020 on the themes of the Masterclass.
Create Your Own Masterclass
The Department of Internal Affairs has commissioned a Guide to the thinking, skills and processes behind the Masterclass so that it can be shared with other communities around New Zealand who may be interested in creating their own. As part of our series of Community Conversations, we are welcoming visitors to Taranaki who might want to learn from this work, and participate in a short skills-sharing session.
Stretching Our Thinking
vivian Hutchinson has written a series of articles, inspired by the themes of our Community Conversations.
"The public sphere in the Western world has changed more radically in the last two decades than in the previous two centuries. Citizens need to make sense of the how and why this is happening, and then get better organised to do something about it."
