Today we have a guest post from Transition Town Brixton's Sibylle Mansour.
Reused and remade – values and ideas for engaging and connecting
Blessed be serendipity! Upon starting to write the opening paragraph to this article, I read Rob’s Resourcing your Initiative blog post and was pleased to find that in the first few sentences he mentioned the key element of the story that I am going to tell. It is about the fact that the success of a group is much more about knowing how to connect people with one another and help them keep the connections dynamic and alive rather then being able to attract funding. We had many discussions about how to attract more funding at Transition Town Brixton (TTB) and I am not saying that we should stop looking for and finding it. However I wholeheartedly like to believe that in essence any creative success story is a story about continuity, consistency and authentic presence; it also is about trust, it’s about sharing and giving.
