The Changemaker Easter Virtual Residential focusing on 'Not your usual leadership programme' 

This is not about leadership as usual. It’s not about your inner HERO, or being assertive, or persuasive, or making a pitch (although those things can be useful). And it’s not about visible status, as much as we might want that. It’s about genuine influence.... 

Applications are now closed.

Poetry and Unknowability Workshop. 28 April 7pm-8.30pm

With Dr Mariah Whelan, Jacqueline Bardsley Poet-in-Residence, Homerton College. 

"In higher education, we spend a lot of time developing our analytical toolkit. We practice skills of reason, analysis and logic to come to understand and ‘know’ the world around us. Poetry, however, is an art practice predicated on the unknowable. At the centre of every poem is something that resists categorisation: a feeling, a mood or an emotional texture that defies categorisation through conventional taxonomies or articulation in everyday speech. In poetry we take that core of what we can’t fully know or express and wrap it up in a poem. We set out devices of metaphor, rhyme and form to gesture towards aspects of human experience that exceed the possibilities offered to us by our everyday systems of knowledge."

This workshop explores methods for incorporating poetic thinking into your study and research practice. More details & registration here

Self Leadership: Exploring yourself and your relationship to leadership 17th Feb 2021, 12-3pm

(in partnership with the Tavistock Institute, London)

This workshop explores the qualities that makes us unique: the skills, knowledge and experiences that each of us bring to the roles we have amongst friends and family, & when we study & work. Seeing the overlaps between those roles, and the values that define them, can be a powerful way to understand leadership in its most intersectional and diverse forms. 

 

 

Visual Voices: Using arts and creativity to make change, 23rd Jan and 30th Jan 2021. We live in unprecedented times. Such times demand an array of approaches for understanding and making change. This experiential workshop introduces the unique approach of ‘visual voices’, a powerful research tool for illuminating challenges and creating dynamic change. During two sessions you will develop photographic projects about core social challenges that matter to you; dig deeper into visual research and representations’ powerful impact; and learn how visual methods can be used towards changemaking in a community, organization, or place. [This is not a photography course - and no photographic or visual training is necessary. But you will need a camera, either stand alone or on your phone].
