Digital and Physical Platforms for Discussion
For many, online communication is a normal part of daily interaction. It’s often the starting point for encouraging conversations for someone struggling with their identity or feeling alone with their experiences. At Power In Discussion we also understand the importance of sharing a physical space for discussion .
Our primary focus is to create safe spaces (online/offline) for meaningful conversations for those who are often silenced or erased from wider discussions. A sense of community is created through events where people are able to discuss, normalise experiences and provide visibility in a shared physical space. We recognise that there can be a positive impact on our wellbeing when we create space (digital or physical) for quality discussion and interaction!
Through bespoke workshops and discussions we aim to provide an inclusive environment where, together, we raise the visibility of a number of social issues including; LGBTQ+ matters, community, diversity and inclusion, mental and physical health, wellbeing, identity and experiences of African- Caribbean communities.
We host and facilitate a range of discussions at the venue of your choosing (schools, college workplace etc.) and tailor interactive workshops to your specific needs.
Power In Discussion has worked in partnership with The Higgins Bedford to curate and host a number of Black History Month events, aiming to create a safe space for discussion and highlighting the contributions of the local Black community. These hugely successful events have had the support of local radio (BBC 3 Counties Radio), with discussions being broadcast as part of their Black History Month content.
Most events follow a similar format; topical panel discussions where the audience have the opportunity interact with panellists, natural opportunities for networking and a generous helping of entertainment (live music or spoken word poetry ! )
Our community focus means that we also host and facilitate a range of bespoke discussions and interactive workshops for various community groups, schools, colleges and places of employment.
