Values for Stronger Communities

14 February 2019 @ 10:00 - 16:30

£91.20 – £192.47

It is a simple but powerful truth that most people care deeply for other people and the places where they live.

But – tragically – the majority of us underestimate the extent to which our fellow citizens care about these things. Yet when we hold more authentic perspectives of others’ values we are more likely to report deeper connection to our communities, support action on social or environmental challenges, show greater motivation to become engaged in wider, collective actions, and feel higher wellbeing.

As museums and cultural organisations, we are among the most important places where the values of compassion, connection and community may be expressed and strengthened. How might we cultivate these values, and create opportunities for people to express, share and experience them with others?

Our new workshop on 14th February 2019 at the Design Museum in London draws on learning from a year-long project at Manchester Museum, where these insights fed into to a wide range of initiatives.  We will explore how we might respond to these insights, and create opportunities tailored to our organisations and our communities
