What is AIREA
AIREA means getting the soil ready for cultivation, moving it, to allow the air and nutrients in.
AIREA UK aims to create a time and space devoted to thinking feeling and working together from a place of personal responsibility. It is a co-creation of discovery and adventure where, through meaningful conversations we share our vision of the future to develop new skills and relate to one another.
See a short video of Andi and Roland at AIREA Madrid 2016
AIREA is for
anyone, who is committed to inclusion. It will be valuable to self-advocates, families, managers and workers in provider organisations, commissioners, community workers, community planners, change leaders and educators.
It will cost
waged participants 200 British Pounds, unwaged participants 90 British Pounds.
This excludes accommodation and evening meal on 28th June.
take a journey over 3 days to think deeply about the current situation for who experience exclusion and what we want to change. We will take a deep dive to discover where we are stuck, what we need to let go of and develop new ideas and ways. To help us on our journey we will hear some of the things that have happened for people as part of the Newpaths to InclUsion network as well as the stories from the participants of the workshop.
In the workshop we will use creative activities and social presencing theatre to help us think and see more clearly.
