(Brighton Event) Discuss participatory tech for social change

Discussing PARTICIPATORY TECHNOLOGY and it's role in bringing about social change - in developing communities and locally. BY THE SEA! :-)

So the line-up is almost complete and it's time to announce our special guest...  The renowned academic and 'Mr Participation' himself, Robert Chambers, has kindly agreed to come along and do a 15-min interactive session introducing some of the key issues around participation and power.  This should be a fun and interesting way to kick things off.  This will be followed by a diverse series of lightning talks, small-group discussions and then plenty of time to continue discussions over drinks.

The full programme is below:

  • 17.45 - Drinks and Networking
  • 18:15 - Welcome and Introduction
  • 18:20 - Robert Chambers, elePhants in the room?
  • 18:40 - Lightning Talks
    (Speakers from Making All Voices Count, University of Brighton, Anansi Digital, Aptivate, On Our Radar, Every1mobile, STEPS Centre (University of Sussex), VSO and Royal Holloway University)
  • 19:30 - Small-group discussions (loosely based on the World Cafe method)
  • 20:15 - 'Harvesting' and feedback from discussion groups
  • 20:30 - Drink till you... well - until you want to!
