CPD Training & Consulting
Exploring Organisational Structure Creatively
Contact worked with the youth focused organisation Blaze, consulting with the board, staff and some of Blaze’s young people through creative workshops on how the young people could be more integrated into the organisation’s structure. Blaze is a Cultural Olympiad Legacy project that works across Lancashire and the North West to create some of the next generation of cultural producers, artists and entrepreneurs.
Two of Contact’s Creative Experts facilitated the Blaze Forum. The forum is a key method for young people to getting involved in decision making at Blaze. The sessions involved looking at how young people can get more involved in the governance of Blaze to shape its future as well as creating a Blaze Mission Statement.
This was done using innovative, creative methods and activities including a live human sculpture of a moving 3D shard, which once developed highlighted and demonstrated future opportunities and ideas to help shape the future of Blaze.
As a result of the sessions, two of Blaze’s young people now sit on the board.
'Many thanks to Contact’s Creative Experts for coming, and for bringing their highly creative minds and exhilarating expertise!’ - Sara Domville, Blaze's Programming Manager
