Free half-day training workshop for VCFSE organisations

NCRM news

Do you run a community or youth group? Are you looking for new ways to deliver creative activities that encourage new connections and positive dynamics between people?

The University of Manchester, Joy Ethic and NCRM have developed an exciting new resource that focusses on ways to creatively engage groups in story-telling activities, group discussions and sharing memories.

The resource, Story-telling Toolkit: Methods with Objects, uses a collection of items to prompt reflections, connections and stories that connect and inspire people. Each toolkit consists of a printed copy of the resource pack, which includes a booklet of five session ideas, as well as a selection of objects to get you started.

To launch our resource, we are running a free half-day training workshop on Tuesday, 6 December. Please note, this event is for those who work or volunteer in the VCFSE sector only.

More information about the workshop

During this fun and interactive event, you’ll develop your own skills in running creative activities, using our new resource as a foundation. Participants will each receive a toolkit to take back and use within their groups.

The workshop will be delivered in-person at The University of Manchester’s Arthur Lewis Building, in Oxford Road, Manchester. It will take place between 09:30 and 13:00, and will be followed by a free lunch.

Due to the limited size of the workshop, we can only accept registration of one person per organisation.

Organisations who cannot attend the training workshop will be able to access an online copy of the resource via NCRM’s website in early 2023.

The event will be co-delivered by Jolene Sheehan from Joy Ethic, Professor Sophie Woodward from The University of Manchester and Dr Ali Hanbury from NCRM.
