About this workshop
Part of the Creative Fuse North East project (funded through the European Regional Development Fund and Arts & Humanities Research Council), RISE is a free-of-charge programme of sociable, creative and confidence-inspiring workshops designed to support you and your organisation. You’ll learn creative ways of effectively collaborating with others online. Using human-centred problem-solving/opportunity-identifying approaches we’ll help you identify what changes could support your social enterprise in being more resilient and sustainable.
Shared insights from RISE will also inform on-going work to develop Newcastle as a positive and supportive social enterprise city – feeding into the bid to Social Enterprise UK for Newcastle to become a registered ‘hot spot’ for social enterprise (www.socialenterprise.org.uk/social-enterprise-places). Led by Junction Point, Connected Voice and Project North East, this bid will set out an action plan to improve the support available to the social enterprise sector across Newcastle.
During the programme you will have the opportunity to spend valuable time working on your social enterprise rather than working in or for it. Within a supportive peer group you’ll have space creatively to evaluate complex business challenges and opportunities. At the end of the programme you’ll leave with a better understanding of how your ambitions and ideas might be brought to life to benefit you and your organisation.
