Besides the Catalyst programme channels, conversations had gone a bit quiet. It had been a full year since the first lockdown. A small group of members came together to think about what next for the space. This became the Working Group.
The group conducted some audience research through a survey and interviews with community members. Gemma Drake facilitated a hack day, to help us evolve our vision and purpose. We became Agencies for Good, complete with a set of House Rules.
Shanice Blair joins as Community Manager from Collaborative Future for an initial 3-month pilot to help shepherd and shape Agencies for Good. Shanice runs a set of experiments to nurture connections and collaboration in the community, building trust and relationships between more members.
