NSUN has commissioned Act Build Change to provide a free workshop for NSUN members to learn more about transformative community organising and building collective power. The workshop will also consider how to embed care in the practice of organising.
Spaces for this event are limited so please check your availability for the workshop before registering, and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can no longer attend.
In the case that the workshop is at full capacity, you can add your name to our waiting list by emailing email@example.com, and we will be in touch if any spaces become available. This workshop will not be recorded, but we will aim to organise a similar session if interest is high.
An Introduction to Transformative Organising
The aim of two hour online workshop is for participants to develop their understanding of how to use transformative community organising to build collective power for change.
- Understand the principles and tools of community organising and how to apply them in practise
- Explore how to embed collective care in organising practice
- Hear about best practice and lessons from an experienced community organiser.
Act Build Change
Act Build Change is a community organising collective. Our mission is to make the methods of organising and collective care accessible to everyone who wants to end injustice in their lives and to build better worlds for all of us.
We are an organising community for those closest to issues to end injustice. Our team has all supported victories for systemic change – from the local to the national. We are not a training agency. We are organising practitioners who build the power of others to win. All of our work centres living experience – with accessibility, intersectionality and care as pillars of our work.
NSUN’s Conduct Agreement
We want virtual NSUN spaces to be safe, welcoming, and inclusive. Harassment, hate speech, and inappropriate behaviour of any kind, verbal or in the chat/Q&A, will not be tolerated.
We reserve the right to immediately remove any attendee we consider to be in breach of this conduct agreement. This includes anyone making racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist, or otherwise discriminatory, offensive, or hateful remarks.
Removed participants will not be able to re-join the session, or, if applicable, join any of the rest of the sessions in a day or series of events. In order to avoid the derailing of sessions we will not enter into conversations around why conduct was deemed inappropriate in the sessions themselves.
This workshop is free to attend. It is for NSUN members. If you are not already a member, sign up for free here.
NSUN is a charity and membership organisation of people and grassroots groups with lived experience of mental ill-health, trauma and distress, working towards the redistribution of power and resource in mental health. You can find out more about us here.
