Full Description: 

Julie Graham and Kathryn Gibson (aka JK Gibson-Graham) spearheaded an approach to grassroots economic development that promotes social enterprise and social justice. Their approach has helped disenfranchised and depressed communities across the world build alternative economic realities. This workshop will train participants in JK Gibson-Graham’s community development process and will share success stories of communities that are thriving as a result of this process. The training will include instruction in the process developed by JK Gibson Graham, successful examples of their methodology in use (utilizing video, photos and print media), and activities where participants will start applying the approach to their own communities. Participants will leave the workshop with the skills and tools necessary to return to their local communities as economic and community development leaders with a clear agenda and vision for change. Participants will be given a copy of JK Gibson-Graham’s toolkit “Shifting Focus: Alternative Pathways for Communities and Economies.”
