We are delighted to be able to share the full programme for The Gathering 2018, which will be taking place on Tuesday 18 September 2018.
This year's event will be held at Resource for London, in Holloway, North London, and will focus on the relationship between impact, power and change. Our conferences provide time and space for those working in the youth sector to reflect, talk openly and learn with peers, and to gather ideas that they can take back to their day to day role and use in practice.
We are again offering ticket prices based on organisation turnover – we hope this means that no one is excluded from attending on the basis of cost. Please get in touch if you still feel that cost is a barrier to your attending. We are, as ever, grateful for support and funding from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Skills, which means that we can heavily subsidise the costs of attending.
Partnership for Young London has teamed up with expert Colin Falconer of InspireChilli to facilitate three interactive workshops for organisations who want to develop and lead assets together. The workshops will introduce a common understanding of asset-based thinking; explore its potential in different contexts of practice and influence; and develop a shared knowledge and commitment for championing asset-based action in London.
2th October, 2pm-6pm
14th November, 2pm-6pm
12th December, 2pm-6pm
Partnership for Young London, Guildhall North Wing, London, EC2V 7HH
How can an asset-based approach contribute to a positive vision for young london? Join the Partnership for Young London in a series of three workshops over October to December to learn more. Asset-based approaches in the youth sector have gained an increased spotlight through Paul Hamlyn Foundation’s Youth Fund, initiatives such as Foyer Federation’s TrustYouth, and the popular growth of social action. More than just a focus on working positively with individuals and communities, asset-based thinking can help us shape sustainable changes to the system by which our society and sector works with and for young people.
The sessions will be informative and collaborative, with a focus on leadership.
