Our Space: Exploring Authentic Community Engagement

This is a unique time to re-imagine community organisations, and their role in offering recovery support to local communities. It is important to hear from a range of voices, and particularly from those most affected by this current crisis and by forms of long-standing economic and social injustice. We are recognising a need to redistribute power locally, and to examine our own and key decision-makers’ positions and privileges, before jumping into the work of rebuilding. 

How and in what ways could, should and/or might this happen in our communities? 

What are practical ways to shift our working patterns and build more authentic relationships with a wide range of community stakeholders? What are some of the challenges that we encounter when building community relationships, and how could they be overcome?
