I know my strengths and weaknesses. I can design a website, write a report, write lengthy minutes and even dance but last Wednesday I was asked to create community with Plasticine! This is a challenge that the majority of members gleefully rose to. Thanks Mia for your creativity and to Kevin and Dave for hosting this event. From the feedback given the highlights were most definitely playing with Plasticine and the delicious lunch – thanks Stevie.
Here are a range of photos showing how amazingly creative community organisers can be (well most of them!)
Now to the conversations followed by feeding back about potential solutions. Please use the comments facility below to add any thoughts/actions/results about the five themes we discussed:
A. How to tell a traumatic story in a lighter way.

Planting sunflower seeds to finish.
