Workshops provide a forum to learn about, experiment with and apply findings of Words that Work to the various contexts where people are advocating on behalf of people seeking asylum. The aim is to share tools and resources to help communicate most effectively about the important work you’re already doing.
Interactive workshop activities enable participants to delve into the research and apply it in different contexts – from conversations, communications and on social media, to campaign plans, visual and online resources as well as interaction with community leaders and elected representatives.
