As part of the Institute of Community Reporters 1st Annual Conference – From the margins to the mainstream: Putting people’s voice at the heart of decision-making processes – we are pleased to announce we are running a 1-Day symposium focused on co-creation in public services.

Co-creating public services with stories of lived experience: A 1-Day Symposium
Thursday 6th June 2018 / 9:45am – 4:30pm / Engine Room @ The People’s History Museum, New Ct St, Manchester, M3 3ER.

Join us and learn about the practical implementation of the Community Reporting methodology in the co-creation of public services across Europe through a mixture of case study presentations, participatory workshops and panel discussions. The symposium programme will include:

  • A case study on how the Making It Real framework has used insight storytelling, and a practical storytelling activity delivered by Community Reporters from TLAP and the National Co-production Advisory Group (NCAG).
  • An interactive story curation session led by the Our Voices project.
  • A workshop exploring how Conversation of Change events can be used to co-design policy recommendations run by the VOICITYS partnership.
  • A collaborative keynote quick-fire, inspiring and provocative talks on topics pertinent to co-creation in public services led by the CoSIE consortium

Be a part of this dialogue and sharing event, and bring your experience of working with people’s voice and stories of lived experience with you! This event is being organised collaboratively between People’s Voice Media, the Institute of Community Reporters and the Our Voices, VOICITYS and COSIE projects.
