The wide scope of the conference programme will include the following forms of engagement all of which should seek participation and dialogue.
Presentations are about exploring theory and how it relates to practice and are designed to encourage participation as well as reflective learning. Presentations may be part of a shared session. Presentations will take place in a number of theatre style rooms across the venue. Each room will have a laptop, projector, internet access and top table.
These will either be interactive sessions of flexible length or fixed displays of material.
We invite community artists and community groups to make films, take photographs, devise plays etc. which illuminate, inspire and challenge us to think more deeply about community. These can take the form of a standalone presentation or exhibit or can be set in the context of an exploratory workshop… we are open to your creative suggestions.
The opportunity to share your research, project or practice through a poster on display throughout the course of the conference.
These will be half-day sessions on the afternoon of Tuesday 10th June (but must be within 1 hour’s travel from the University of Glasgow).
Field visits are about directly observing practice and meeting local communities to deepen understanding of the Scottish community development context. Field visits will take place in West and Central Scotland; please note that there will be restrictions placed on visits by travel time. Delegates will be able to pre-book these sessions.
