Mapping Your Community

Jeder Institute is excited to offer our Mapping your Community workshop. This workshop will focus on the six assets of ABCD. We will share asset mapping tools to identify, connect and activate their community assets to create opportunities.
“The appeal of ABCD lies in its premise that communities can drive the development process themselves by identifying and mobilizing existing, but often unrecognized assets, and thereby responding to and creating local economic opportunity.” Dan Duncan
This training is interactive and participatory, where you get to use the tools and resources which you are learning about. These tools and resources can be used directly with the communities who you work with.
Asset Mapping is an effective way to map the skills, talents, abilities, and passions of individuals, and to discover the strengths, networks, and resources of communities and organisations. This workshop will cover:
- The WHY, The HOW, The CONNECTION and The OUTCOMES of Asset Mapping
- Key Steps to Asset Mapping
- Tools share with others to identify, connect and activate your community assets
The facilitators for this workshop are:
Fiona Miller – Fiona is a creative conduit with a diverse back ground that includes community development, creative & visual arts, early years, education, bushfire recovery, inclusion, community houses, community gardens and more. Having worked within a variety of organisations/agencies and local governments she has a broad understanding of the diversity of organisational structures.
As a facilitator, graphic harvester or community member, contributing to community for making great places and participating in community led projects that are sustainable are her focus. She loves nothing more than watching people and projects grow and uses creative arts, ABCD and strengths based practices as platforms for discovering and exploring community futures.
Supporting our young people to explore their own place within community is something she sees as particularly important. Everyone deserves to feel safe and be included and we can build relationships and have fun while we do it.
Lee Griffiths – I have a passion for community and always have, this is why I do the work I do, facilitating ABDC training, workshops and strategic planning. I have spent the last 14 years working in local government and the not for profit sector creating the conditions for government and organisations to walk along side community to strengthen outcomes across Australia and the UK.
From my grassroots roots voluntary work to my previous leadership positions, the golden thread has always build on recognising the strengths, assets and opportunities communities already have to bring about the change they want.
