The Meteor Community Organising Training

May 15 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Hi everyone, we will be holding a one-day Introduction for Community Organising training for The Meteor next Wednesday 15th May, 9.45am-5pm at Partisan, 19 Cheetham Hill Rd, Manchester M4 4FY.
The course gives an overview of the community organising process and provides an introduction to the core elements of community organising: listening, power and action. We will also spend some time thinking about how this may be relevant to The Meteor’s work of community journalism in Manchester, particularly in relation to our plans to launch our co-op this year. Community organising has been a crucial part of media co-op The Bristol Cable’s success so hopefully it will help us to get an overview of the process and how it may be applied.
This course has been developed by Community Organisers (https://www.corganisers.org.uk/) and will be delivered by Alice Toomer-McAlpine as an Associate Trainer for the company. It is accredited training and fully funded by Community Organisers, so free for participants to attend.
Next week will be a bit of an experiment to see how the training can be applied to a community journalism context and if successful we could run it again in the future.
Could those who want to attend the training next week please register via this link *before next Monday 13th*, so we have time to prepare the right amount of resources!
If you have any questions just give me a shout on alicetm@themeteor.org
