A Forum Theatre project in Leith which came as a direct result of the Action Plan created at our Divided We Fall? event in May 2013. One of the top action points voted on by participants was to find ways for community groups and organisations to become more resilient, be able to share information and be able to thrive in the current economic and political environment.
We live in difficult economic times. Many community organisations are expected to do more with less resources and have to focus on surviving everyday. How can we enable these organisations to be able to become more resilient and thrive?
We live in difficult political times. Although a lot of language centres around community empowerment and involving communities in decisions that affect them, this is often not seen in communities. How can communities be supported to take more control of their own assets and the decisions that affect them?
