Community Engagement in Covid-19 Times

Our second online workshop Community Engagement in Covid Times launch coincided with a national lockdown in early January. In these times when we are connected together remotely, this workshop explored ways of engaging with communities using online platforms. The phrase ‘going digital’ may sound daunting but this session brought together two forms of online engagement that are versatile, easily accessible and tailored for a range of community projects. We heard great examples of case studies from Commonplace and Bang the Table. While traditional methods of meeting up may not be possible at the moment, these online options will help to keep people connected, voices of all ages heard and a conversation flowing. 

A link to a recording can be found below, as are presentation slides from our speakers.
