CoLab enquiries

A CoLab Enquiry is an opportunity for people to share research findings, or emerging and evolving work, with a group of interested peers.

Enquiries coming up:

Enquiry 1: Co-production in Dudley
Tuesday 24 February 2015
The offices and coffee shops of Dudley were buzzing with talk of co-production last summer as a team of friendly interviewers met with people in all sorts of roles to find out where we're at in Dudley when it comes to co-production. A CoLab report will be launched as part of this session.

Enquiry 2: State of the Sector
Tuesday 24 March 2015
In Autumn 2014 Dudley CVS carried out an in-depth survey of their members. 107 local organisations and groups responded, and the results have been analysed by national charity NAVCA. Dudley CVS are keen to discuss key themes with people from all sorts of backgrounds and organisations. The survey findings will be shared online too, including on the CoLab Dudley Borough blog (http://colabdudley.com/).

CoLab Lightning Talks

CoLab Lightning Talks are short (1 hour) events at which between two and four people give short presentations and there is an opportunity to discuss them. We encourage speakers to keep to one of our broad themes, which are collaboration, co-production and social innovation. That can embrace any number of things which people, groups and organisations in the borough get up to!

Lightning Talk session coming up: Wednesday 11 March 12.30-1.30pm

Come along to be inspired, learn something new, find out what's going on in the borough, and to give support and encouragement to others.
Share a story, experience or idea through a short talk (up to 10 minutes). You can use this session to practice a presentation you have to give. This friendly audience will give you encouraging feedback.
