SpeakUp Forum's Big Event this year will identify the strengths, gifts, resources, places and people across East Sussex, also known as ‘Community Assets’. These help to create strong, inclusive and sustainable communities.

If you understand “asset” as a sterile, uncaring word set in the realms of finance, then Knowing Your Assets from Your Elbow is definitely for you! Even if you are already familiar with the asset based approach, your input is important as this will be a day of sharing ideas and thoughts through practical, fun and creative workshopping.

To set the scene we will celebrate successful projects through a mix of film and presentations. These will focus on how each influences and progresses the lives of individuals, organisations, communities, even society. Then we will look at what already exists, including hidden gems, and consider how we can work together to encourage and develop local assets in East Sussex.

Finally, over a light lunch and through networking, you will have the perfect opportunity to meet people and discuss working together using the asset based approach.

Whether you are in the voluntary and community sector, the public sector or private sector, working in organisations big or small, we would be delighted for you to join us for the Big Event 2019.
