Anne from @capsadvocacy now introducing the afternoon workshops by discussing power and space. Thinking about the difference between 👇

✅ invited space
✅ claimed space
✅ educational space
✅ & closed space

& how these concepts work within #CollectiveAdvocacy

Delighted to be hearing from @lindasomervill discussing the @saveleithwalk campaign, including:

👉 Inception of the campaign operating outside the usual structures
👉 They asked people for help and what people wanted to learn
👉 No formal hierarchy for the group
