Community Organising: confrontation vs consensus workshop
Venue : Ross House, 247 Flinders Lane Melbourne
Host :The Change Agency
In the good ol’ days, every social change group knew how to do a street protest, or an occupation, or something even more confrontational. Today, many social change groups avoid any kind of confrontation in favour of consensus models. Is confrontation really irrelevant to today’s social change efforts? Are consensus models really effective? This workshop will draw on participants’ experiences with confrontation and consensus processes to better understand the strengths and weaknesses of each. Then, using a political opportunity structure model, you will learn how to analyse your political contect to better decide when, where and how to use a combination of confrontation and consensus strategies.
