Collaboration, Creativity and Complexities Conference 2019

Location: Brooks Building, 53 Bonsall St, Manchester M15 6GX

Collaboration, creativity and complexities: developing networks and practices of co-production with children and young people.

Hosted by the Manchester Centre for Youth Studies, the Education and Social Research Institute and the Faculty of Health, Psychology and Social Care at Manchester Metropolitan University.

This is one of the first international multidisciplinary conferences to be held in the UK with a focus on co-production and creative methods that welcomes academics and community partners into a shared space. Co-production has become more mainstream recently within a number of disciplines and contexts across the social sciences and arts and humanities. This conference will address methods and ideas in the broad area of co-production with a focus on making change happen. Our interest is on sharing ideas, inspiration and experiences around co-production with children and young people. The conference will explore participatory and creative methods. We welcome contributions in a variety of formats, including but not limited to; presentations, workshops, exhibitions, films, posters, experiential events or happenings across the following themes:

  • Creative methods and co-production – ways of knowing, doing, learning together
  • Young people as leaders in co-produced projects – learning from experience
  • Academics and communities co-researching – practice and theory
  • Transforming communities through co-produced projects
  • Interdisciplinary work on co-produced projects.
  • Places, space and co-production
