Community Programming Group

Why a Community Programming Group?

We want to open the HOME Slough programming process up to a wide range of voices that would perhaps never usually be involved.

A priority among these voices are members of Slough’s communities.

The Community Programming Group (CPG) is a way for HOME Slough to include various sectors of the community in planning and developing the new programme. It is all about getting the community and creative sectors involved at the very beginning of our thinking.

The CPG is not just about the community responding to early ideas from HOME Slough but also a place to bring their own fresh ideas.

By working together, from the start, HOME Slough’s programme will benefit from multiple perspectives and we’ll end up with even better products and processes for Slough.

Who should attend?

We are inviting local people interested in helping shape the HOME Slough programme – we want anyone who can bring their expertise and knowledge of the local area.

The CPG is a place for everyone to share their own expertise and experience, this might be expertise around community need and opportunities, or creative or cultural experience. It is a space to share, learn from others, to co-design and co-create a programme which will engage and excite all the communities of Slough.

Collectively we will explore the needs, ambitions and information we have from different angles, asking questions, making connections, and sparking ideas.

How will it work?

The CPG workshops will be run in a relaxed and open style using a ‘world café method’.

This works on the simple assumption that people already have the wisdom and creativity to confront even the most difficult challenges, that the answers we need are available to us, and that we are wiser together than we are alone.

World Café style workshops allow for several small intimate conversations that happen in three or more rounds.
