Natalie Bell Workshop - equal opportunity, social mobility, diversity, social engagement & youth work

Workshop with Natalie Bell from Coin Street Community Builders

These workshops are part of the development for Tate Exchange BETA Society event exploring socially engaged practice, social inclusion & mobility, see more about Tate event here.

The workshop is supported by the DMC funded project: Socially Engaged Digital Practice project supported by UAL Teaching and Learning Fund 2019

The workshop will include:

Equal opportunity, Social mobility and Diversity?- What do these mean and how can we create a neutral space that support true collaboration and social inclusion?

Introduction to social engagement and youth work - Exploring ideas, methods & approaches for supporting co-production and positive community engagement

Each session is the same but may be slightly different and will respond to the audience needs, the sessions will also lead into a general conversation with the DMC, where you can bring your perspectives of digital to the session themes.

Workshop will be held at Camberwell Playground 

The plan in BETA mode:

We are looking to programme a number of open & informal debates/discussions as well as some hands on activities. We hope to identify a number of provocations/challenges and will invite the public to respond through making, co-production & digital experimentation in the:

Hacker Studio, along side an Open Platform for Informal Debate
 

The emerging themes/context currently included:

Equality of opportunity: 

  • Explore, examine & challenge existing narratives of social inclusion & social mobility 
  • Formal models of education: schools - universities - what/who are they for?
  • Future of work: Inclusion, diversity, or impacts of technology on creative industries & the low-wage workforce e.g automation - manufacturing, 
  • Challenge societies narrative of success (rather then trying to change conditions of others to fit ours narrative)

Citizen centered innovation:

  • What do we mean by Socially Engaged Practice?
  • Explore & share ideas, methods & approaches for supporting co-production 
  • How can we use digital technology to better enable positive change for socioeconomic diversity? 
  • Support for social inclusion, new enterprise models and knowledge exchange opportunities
  • How do we create a neutral space that can avoid structured mandates and support true collaboration and social inclusion? 
  • What challenges are there for local communities in representing themselves in a different location, environment and context such as public art galleries, educational institutions or virtual space?
