    Seminar Series 1 Lecture 5 - Denys Candy

    Location: Glasgow

    Denys Candy, Managing Partner, Community Partners Institute, Pittsburgh: ‘The Art of Engagement’ 

    Key ideas:

    • Partnership working should be about having mutually trusting relationships. Insider / outsider role important in work with communities.
    • Essence - to work in an effective and accepted way in any area, it is important to try to capture the essence of this area.
    • 'The periphery' - to be at the periphery can be both positive (innovation possible at the periphery) and negative (excluding; 'peripheralisation')
    • Perspective - of different groups / people, and from different geographical locations.
