Spirit of Place
To further support our connections and relationships as a Community of Communities, we are launching the Spirit of Place. We want every member of Community of Communities to put together a presentation that best answers the question: What makes our place special?
The presentation should be a standalone piece that can be shown as part of a gallery on Knowledge Hub and/or at our Annual Forum in April 2021. The presentation could be a video, a PowerPoint presentation, a newsletter, painting, photographic essay, essay
or any combination of ideas. The only condition is that it “opens” as one item, on one click, and that you are happy for it to be shared.
There are few rules, obvious ones are that you must have permission if showing any individuals, you should be careful not to include anything that might cause offence or breach confidentiality. Most importantly you and all contributors must be happy
for it to be shown to other members of the network and/or be put on websites or social media.
We are asking that your community asks: What Makes Our Place Special? What is the Spirit of our Place? Think about:
How does your place make you feel?
What makes your place:
This idea is inspired by the same scheme run by the National Trust. Their PowerPoint provides great examples of what we are looking for, which can be seen
The deadline for all of your presentation is that last day of the 2020-2021 Annual Cycle March 31st 2021, however, we will be looking to feature some of them as they come in so get thinking and let those creative juices flow.
Every year Community of Communities holds a creative competition where members can submit their artwork.
We welcome submissions from any of our members and these can be paintings, drawings, sculptures, photography, poetry or short stories.
We have received some fantastic submissions over the years. Winning entries will receive a certificate and will be displayed on our website.
Winners will also have their art included in the reports we send to our members. Submissions can be sent via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
