Intro to Asset-based Community-led Development Workshop

Thursday, 1 August

St Peter's Youth Centre,
Cornish St, Stepney SA

Join Playgroup SA & the Jeder Institute for an
interactive day of learning.
Become confident in working with & mobilising communities. Develop the skills to build leadership and partnerships in communities using ABCD philosophy.

THE WHAT: Experience how to blend ABCD with a range of powerful strengths-based approaches to community work and complementary methodologies to create powerful outcomes. Leave with practical tools & skills on how to:
• Focus on assets and strengths rather than deficiencies
• Discover ways to blend methodologies
• Apply strengths-based monitoring and evaluation
• Build effective partnership strategies
• Increase confidence in hosting group work
• Form powerful enquiries and proposals
• Explore group dynamics and decision-making

THE WHY: Many of the challenges faced by individuals and communities require transformational change, which can only be achieved by focusing on the strengths within. Models to access these strengths include:
• Citizen & Community-led Initiatives
• Asset-based or Place-based projects
• Collective Impact & Action work
• Collaboration & Community Conversations
• Participatory Citizen’s Juries & Budgeting, & more

THE HOW: Learn ways to weave, embed and sustain ABCD and other strengths-based and participatory practices through co-design and collaboration processes. We will show you how to move from dialogue to action and how to discover ways to address complex challenges via innovative solutions.
