Transcript

  • 1. Community Organisers Jess Steele, Locality People’s History Museum, 3 rd March 2011
  • 2. Community Organising Organisers listen to people and encourage dialogue. They do not bring any message or seek any specific outcome. Consciousness-raising rather than capacity-building. Find the ‘generative themes’ that motivate people to act. Change ‘the bad scene’ into a specific set of issues that people can take action around. Actions may aim to change the powerful or to create a DIY response, or both.
