Connected Conversations; Passing It On - An Introduction
Posted by Connected Culture on 08 January 2014
Welcome to the first of a series of posts related to Connected Conversations; Passing It On.
These are a sequence of roundtables co-curated by Jocelyn Cunningham of Arts and Society and myself for Connected Culture taking place at the Royal Society for Arts (RSA) in late January and February 2014. They are invite only events, embracing the spectrum of participatory arts, engaged practice and community arts.
The blog series to follow from us at Connected Culture and Arts and Society are about how we are trying to invite more people to engage with the topics and issues of the conversations that we can fit into a room.
In keeping with the approach behind Connected Culture – that those involved speak for themselves - Jocelyn and I will be blogging as individual voices. We may or may not agree. You could have other opinions. We’d like to hear them. So please engage with us online at www.connectedculture.co.uk and www.artsandsocietyuk.blogspot.co.uk.
To get started we’re asking people to explore and share personal ideas and views by answering the following questions:
- What is the most inspiring project you know about and why?
- What have you created, enabled or been part of that you are most proud of and why?
- What is the project you would most like to be a part of? Why?
These questions are a jumping off point. They offer an opportunity to share learning, questions, and uncertainties.
Essentially we want to unpick what matters, where is it hard or easy, and why. We want to better understand perspectives and approaches. We want to look at the practical challenges alongside what excites us enough to get out of bed in the morning.
If you want to answer our initial questions or your thoughts are already rolling please add them to the comments below or email them to us.
