How can communities come together to partner for change?

How are successful partnerships established? How are they nurtured and strengthened? How can everyone involved in a partnership benefit from collaboration? And how do we know if positive change has actually been achieved?

Join us and find out at the final day of our Festival, at The Science Gallery on Thursday 23rd June!

The ESRC Centre for Society and Mental Health is inviting researchers, service users, survivors, third sector members, policy makers, and members of the public, to come together to share experiences and discuss how partnerships can be designed to facilitate change.

Through networking, discussion, workshops and creative expression, this exciting event will provide opportunities to exchange knowledge and find new ways of working together to better understand the relationships between challenges facing society; from covid, rising inequality, climate change, and mental health and how to facilitate social change.

We will be hosting a full day programme of workshops and creative activities, led by Black Thrive LambethThe McPin Foundation, Jack Drum ArtsTraumascapes, Survivors Voices and the Service User Research Enterprise, as well as Centre researchers. We will finish our Festival with a poetry slam and a panel discussion featuring speakers who have led activities over the course of the week.

Due to limited spaces, we recommend expressing interest for the focused discussion groups held in Gallery 2 when you register for the Festival. You can find details in the registration form.
