Creative Sharing Summit

April 24 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Join us at the Creative Sharing Summit to explore how sharing resources – our space, skills and stuff – can empower communities to work together to become more than the sum of their parts, providing more opportunities for people to connect with each other, culture and the arts, and become more resilient and dynamic.

Keynote Speech:
· Rachel Laurence from the New Economics Foundation
Rachel will introduce ways of approaching community-led economic development, starting from the basis that social, environmental and economic outcomes are equally important.

Case Studies:
· Homebaked Community Land Trust
· Participatory City
· Norwich City Council’s Community Enabling Team
Further information about case studies below…

An afternoon of workshops will connect people to explore how we can work together to share resources that will help improve the places we live in.

MarketPlace: Displays by local organisations already using a sharing approach will show their work and enable conversations to help us all learn more.

Aims: To discover the benefits of sharing To share practical case-study experiences for inspiration To bring people together to share ideas and make connections for real-life actions This event is a follow up to the Creative Workspace Summit of 2018 and the Creative Centres Summit of 2019 and will be of interest to: local residents, artists, creatives, students, budding entrepreneurs, and anyone interested in creating vibrant and dynamic town centres and high streets.
