November 6-8, 2017 | Kitchener, ON

On November 6-8, the Tamarack Institute is convening community change practitioners in Kitchener, Ontario to explore the next generation of community engagement principles and practices. This workshop was convened earlier this year in March in Vancouver and is being hosted again on the east side of the country because people have been asking for it!

The agenda for Community Engagement: The Next Generation is structured with a blend of learning modules, workshops, immersive community tours and hands-on tool sessions for you to learn, brainstorm, share, and implement. You’ll learn:

  • Hands-on, interactive practice of engagement techniques and technology
  • Theoretical frameworks for engagement, systems change and movement building
  • Exposure to cutting-edge technologies to make your engagement work easier and more effective
  • The latest in interviewing, facilitation and dialogue techniques
  • The opportunity to experience creative engagement techniques using theatre and the arts
  • How to engage polarized audiences and combat cynicism
  • Practical examples and in-depth case studies from municipalities, community organizations, provincial (state) government and corporations
