BE collective

Establishing a new civic alliance across professional fields & sectors.

OVERVIEW

During Our Future City Phase 1 (2014-15), creating a Creative & Cultural Hub to provide backbone functions, support and services was identified as a significant development area for the city. A hub could encourage and support collective action and help the network to make lasting changes in the lives of children and young people. By establishing a new civic alliance between public, private and third sectors and across professional fields including health, regeneration, arts, heritage, social care, business, creative and digital industries; a backbone hub would support progress towards achieving the aspirations outlined during Phase 1.

THESE ASPIRATIONS INCLUDE:

  • Working together better to achieve strategic aims.

  • Improving cross-sector relationships and mechanisms that support collaborative working.

  • Developing shared values and goals.

  • Better sharing of knowledge, information and opportunities.

  • Increased capacity for sector memory and shared, adaptive learning.

  • More sophisticated approaches to evaluation that help to identify and measure impact.

Our #BeCollective events are designed to help us achieve these aims.

What difference could '#BeCollective' make?

  • Children and young people at the centre of strategic development (‘for, by, with’ ethos).
  • Co-delivery with all stakeholders including children and young people.
  • Common purpose and motivation through shared values and aims.
  • Effective mechanisms for cross-sector working, including the development of new cultural and creative work and mutually valuable approaches to evidencing impact.
  • Establishing shared approaches to evaluation/measurement to better evidence our collective impact, through gathering and sharing evidence and an embedded approach to data collection. Across arts, cultural and heritage partners.
  • Models of cross-sector working that involve professionals from different sectors working together towards the OFC goals and specifically to support young people to improve their wellbeing and/or develop their creativity.
  • Strong links between cultural, education, health sectors and employers in the city; for the benefit of all children and young people.
  • Increased capacity for sector memory, better supporting the sector to learn and adapt.
