CPD workshop: ‘From Consultation to Co-Creation’

Training Date: 12 March 2020

12 March 2020,  10am – 4pm, The Women’s Organisation, Liverpool

Join People’s Voice Media and Ideas Alliance to explore how to harness the insights and knowledge of lived experience as part of co-creative processes and practices in this Continued Professional Development workshop, taking place in Liverpool on 12 March 2020, facilitated by PVM’s Dr. Hayley Trowbridge and Ideas Alliance’s Helen Sharpe.

People’s lived experiences are becoming increasingly important in decision-making processes. They are instrumental in creating new ideas, ways of doing things and ultimately bringing about social change. Within this context, concepts such as ‘co-design’, ‘co-production’ and ‘co-creation’ are becoming more mainstream within a range of public and third sector support services, and are firmly on the agenda of local and national Governments and commissioners. It is therefore important that those working in these fields understand the value of lived experience as a knowledge base and how it can be practically used to inform practice, influence policy and initiate change in meaningful ways.

This 1-Day Continued Professional Development workshop will help you develop your knowledge, skills and expertise in how to address the challenges of working with the knowledge of lived experience, tying it in to co-creative processes and bottom-up change structures. Through a mixture of practical tasks, case studies and presentations, discussions and one-to-one facilitator time, you will get to grips with how such concepts and approaches can be better utilised in your role and organisation. As part of this workshop you will:

  • Explore different types of lived experience and identify how they can be gathered and used to create impact at individual, organisational and systemic levels
  • Assess the challenges to and opportunities of working with the knowledge of lived experience and examine how barriers to implementation can be overcome
  • Create a bespoke plan for working with the knowledge of lived experience in your role and organisation, and develop your ideas using peer support and critical-thinking approaches

This workshop is perfect for team, middle and strategic management professionals working in sectors such as health and social care, education, community development and infrastructure support, and public services who want to understand how to better use lived experience as a tool for quality, service or organisation development.

The workshop has a limited number of places to ensure quality of experience and one-to-one time with Hayley and Helen. It will run . Places cost £195 per person and can be booked via Eventbrite: visit the Eventbrite page.
