  • June, 2015:  Field trip to Canada
    Professor Mihaela Kelemen (KMS/CASIC), Sue Moffat (New Vic Theatre/CASIC), Professor Martin Philips, Leicester University and Jess Steele, Jericho Road Solutions spent a week in Canada disseminating research findings and methodologies of co-production used in four Connected Communities projects funded by the AHRC.  The field trip was part of one of the seven Legacy projects funded by the AHRC to capture and evaluate the impact of the Connected Communities Programme. The team was hosted by Professor Tima Bansal, Executive Director of the Network for Business Sustainability at Ivey Business School, University of Western Ontario.  A series of talks and workshops were organised at the university and in the community. The cultural animation workshop hosted by the Pillar Non-profit Network on cross-sector collaboration attracted over forty members from the private, public and third sector.  Further research talks and cultural animation workshops on volunteering and community organizing were delivered in the City of Markham, Toronto where more than fifty participants debated the findings of the research carried out by the UK team and had a taster of cultural animation in relation to identifying and resolving issues present in their local communities.
