Event description
Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) & Community Arts Masterclass with Peter Kenyon from Bank of Ideas and Dimitrios Papalexis

About this Event

Are you passionate about asset based community development, active citizenship, story-telling, community arts, social change? 

Join Peter Kenyon from Bank of Ideas and Dimitrios Papalexis in Sydney this July for a 3h Masterclass to explore the power of

Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) & Community Arts.

It is becoming more evident that we need to move away from the traditional deficit model of customer segmentation, needs analysis and silos and move towards a focus on assets, strengths, gifts and citizen driven communities.

Join this Masterclass to:

  • discover the power of social capital and local, 'bottom up' and asset based approaches to help bring about positive economic, social and environmental change within our communities;
  • explore a range of innovative strategies, tools and methodologies to inspire people, activate citizenship and strengthen communities;
  • discover the power of community participatory arts, 'out of the box' thinking and creative communication to help bring social change;

The Masterclass will include an experiential activity and culminate into a Q&A session where you will have the opportunity to ask questions about your community engagement and initiatives.

Masterclass Facilitators

Peter Kenyon (Director, Bank of I.D.E.A.S., Australia)

Peter Kenyon is a social capitalist and community enthusiast. Over the last two decades he has worked with over 1500 communities throughout Australia and overseas seeking to facilitate fresh and creative ways that stimulate community and economic renewal. He is motivated by the desire to create healthy, caring, inclusive, sustainable and enterprising communities and local economies. Peter is convinced that one cannot develop communities from the top down or from the outside in. It requires communities to build from the inside out, and for their members to invest themselves and their ideas, assets and resources in the process. Peter created the Bank of I.D.E.A.S. (Initiatives for the Development of Enterprising Action and Strategies) in 1991 to promote such a paradigm shift and assist with the necessary facilitation, ideas and skills. Peter’s consulting work has resulted in assignments in 59 countries and all states of Australia. From 2004, Peter has spent part of each year working in a range of Middle East and/or North African countries assisting with the development of national youth policies and strategies. Peter is a faculty member of the ABCD Institute at Northwestern University, Chicago, USA.
