Community energy groups and creative practitioners are invited to join Regen to consider the ways we can collaborate to celebrate and explore one of the most important and charged issues of the day. Energy and our hopes for the future.

Chloe Uden, Regen’s arts and energy producer will show examples of recent small and large scale arts and energy projects from around the world, highlighting how a variety of arts project can work in different contexts and engage diverse groups in a multitude of ways. Jodie Giles will talk about starting your own energy project and how creative engagement techniques can be applied in your area.

Starting a conversation with your community about energy can be tricky, we’ll guide you through what other community energy groups have done to get people involved, and share top tips on the best methods for engaging communities. If you want to start an energy project in your area, you will come away with a simple plan to get going.

Chloe will facilitate a ‘give and gain’ dialogue about how artists and community energy groups might be able to collaborate to co-create a more resilient future.

Hear from each-other about what’s happening in the art and energy worlds.

Share details about the sorts of projects that you might be interested in getting involved in.

Enjoy a cuppa and some cake at this free event.

If you would like to bring along something in particular to share please contact Chloe in advance on
