‘Communities Can 2012’ Conference

Project: In April I was part of the team delivering the ‘Communities Can 2012′ – a vibrant conference exploring the use of co-production, coaching and time-banking to empower communities and create well-being.250 people in a giant marquee. A ground-breaking event, 250 attendees in a giant marquee erected inside the new stadium at Parc Eirias Stadium in Colwyn Bay, North Wales.

Action: Chaired by Dr Neil Wooding, with Dr Edgar Cahn and Dr Chris Gray as keynote speakers – an action-packed day with a series of activities designed to engage everyone in a ‘big conversation’. And talk we did… Assisted by Eleanor Beer, we worked to capture all the rich responses and speeches, through visual minutes, quote and cloud shaped cards and table sheets – powerful stuff!

Results: I have been part of the working group and designed the conference materials, from the name right through to the logo, leaflets and visual-led sessions on the day – including a World Café with 4 zones and different conversations. Pam stayed true to her vision and we designed a custom cafe with 24 tables, 4 coloured zones and two rounds of conversations. All the materials are shared on the site – thanks to everyone for an experience which created powerful insights and connections to help change futures and make some of the dreams become a reality. communitiescan2012.wordpress.com
