Community Development, insights for Practice – a narrative research project

Jenny Aimers and Peter Walker are coming to Community House to talk us through their recent research and book. Community Development, Insights for practice in Aotearoa New Zealand. With a real Otago focus there’s a great chance to learn from situations we might be familiar with.

This presentation is linked to the recently published book. Based on interviews with 13 community workers who have worked within a wide range of communities representing a shared place or identity. There was a mix of voices representing current, previous practitioners and old hands. For this presentation we will outline the underpinnings, skills and processes drawn from these interviews as well as discuss the research process. Some of the community workers featured will be also present and will form a panel for a question and answer session from the floor.

The event is free, bring your lunch, tea and coffee provided.
