Event description

How do we create a community that listens deeply so that every voice is heard?

The 3 day Asset Based Community Development (r)Evolution is a deep dive into ABCD and Strengths based Community Development processes and practices with a skilled team of  practitioners from across Australia including:

Dee Brooks, Michelle Dunscombe, Om Dhungel, Renae Veedikint, Vanessa Alexander, Dean Quirke and Friends

THE WHAT: Participants will experience how to blend Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) with other practices and processes and practically apply a range of tools & skills to:

• Focus on assets and strengths rather than deficiencies
• Discover ways to blend methodologies
• Apply strengths-based monitoring and evaluation
• Build effective partnership strategies
• Increase confidence in hosting group work
• Form powerful enquiries and proposals
• Explore group dynamics and decision-making
