About the event

Celebrating the successes and challenges of co-creation, you are invited to celebrate the wonder that is working together, fully, actively and with a shared philosophy. Co-creating Welfare is a 3-year European project to improve the implementation of co-creation in the welfare sector, delivered collaboratively with partners in Denmark, France, Portugal and the UK.

For those interested in co-production, co-design, involving people in services or collaborative tools, this free sharing event will detail key findings from the project, as presented by Dr Gemma Pearce and Paul Magee from Coventry University. Most of the day will be made up of activities and presentations from co-creators who will showcase their collaborative activities, barriers, opportunities and provide tangible case-studies of practice with practical, bite-sized tools to complement your own work.

Through co-creation, all stakeholders are involved in shaping the decisions that impact them. Whether co-creation is familiar or fresh, this engaging day will help hone your co-creation skills and meet fellow co-creators!
