Co-Design Works – Community Workshops

Co-Design Works – Community Workshops

Community members and local service organisations are invited to join us for FREE workshops to learn about co-design.

The first workshop will be held in November 2023 with a follow-up workshop in March 2024.

Co-design is a process where people work together (co) to create (design) an item, activity, service or product. When we say people, it may be community members or professionals.

It is important to have the right mix of people, those with lived experience as well as those who work in the services or organisations.

For example, if you are wanting to design a support service for families/carers with primary-aged children then you need those families/carers with primary-aged children and the people who provide those services in the room working together.

Why is co-design a good idea?
  • many minds coming together can create new ideas
  • it is respectful and inclusive
  • it gets better results
Why is it important for organisations to know about co-design?

So they can understand and use good co-design in their work.

Why is it important for community members to know about co-design?

We hope that this training will help community members know what co-design is and feel confident to participate in co-design opportunities that come up in Burnie.

When: Wednesday, 29 November 2023 

Time: 9:30am to 12pm 

Where: The Point, West Park, Burnie

Register for the November workshop

A second workshop will be held in March 2024.

Burnie Works is hosting these workshops with PaperGiant.

When community, organisations and government understand how co-design works, Burnie Works.
