Leading Engagement

As one of our pre-Engage events on the 3rd of December, we are also hosting a small workshop for those with more than 4 years' experience leading public engagement. This will be an opportunity for experienced public engagement professionals to come together to share their experiences, problem solve together, and explore how the NCCPE can support them. 

If you are interested in applying to join this event, please email maddy.foard@uwe.ac.uk.

Event details

To make sure we place each workshop in an appropriate sized room, we'd like to have an indication from delegates as to which workshop they think they'd like to go to. This is to give us an indication of potential numbers, and is not a booking for this workshop. Please note that the programme is still in draft form and all sessions are subject to change.

Please choose the workshop that most interests you for each session on each day you'll be attending

Delegate contributions

We're doing things a little differently this year at Engage, and asking delegates to consider contributing to our plenary sessions in the following ways:

  • 2 minute soap-box speech - do you have a call to arms, a passionate plea, or an angry rant to disrupt our thinking? Or are you inspired by a wonderful example of engagement that you want to celebrate? This is your chance to share!
  • 4 minute stories of disruption - do you have a great story of disruption, from your practice, research or other experience that has led to effective change? 
  • A wild-card contribution - your chance to disrupt! Singing, dancing, spoken word, artwork and more - the sky is the limit!

We are also hoping to create a 'living library' of delegates this year. A bookshelf of delegates will be created, all of whom you can 'borrow' for a 15 minute conversation about their topic of interest.

This should give people an idea of what you'd like to talk about if they 'borrow' you.
50 words maximum.
