Graeme Tiffany in collaboration with Maynooth University will be leading a two day Community Philosophy training workshop on the 18th-19th July 2017. Maynooth is a short commute from Dublin City Centre and has a long history of engagement across the educational continuum and in the youth and social work sector. The workshop will cost €180 but please contact Graeme if this is a difficulty for you.
This is a really exciting opportunity for anyone engaged in education, youth work, social work, community activism, and the arts and philosophy.
Graeme will be working with Prof. Aislinn O’Donnell (Department of Education) on the organisation of this event. Aislinn is also part of the Philosophy Ireland network and has recently been collaborating with a small team from Philosophy Ireland and the Matt Talbot Community Trust to bring communities of philosophical enquiry into the prison context. This event is being part supported by the Faculty of Social Sciences in Maynooth University.
On the 20th of July, Graeme will be leading a Young People’s Event at Youth Work Ireland. This will provide an opportunity to reflect and explore with young people ways of getting them involved with Philosophy Ireland.
Please click here to download the event flyer and feel free to revert with questions. We’d really appreciate it if you could disseminate information about this event to your wider networks, in particular youth workers, community workers, community activists, adult educators, and people in the arts community. It is a rare opportunity to have such an event in Ireland and it would be terrific to have a wide range of participants in order to catalyse the practice of community philosophy and to build our own communities of practice.
Aislinn will be able to help you with the organisational and logistical part whilst Graeme can give you more detail about the workshop and the kinds of knowledge and skills that you will learn over the two days.
