Why The Knotted Project Co-Create
Co Creation helps us to shout with and for young people, it’s their ideas, perspectives and stories we want to tell.
Working in this way keeps us fresh and ensures that The Knotted Project remains relevant and agile. Our Co-Creation method nurtures an environment where young people feel inspired, valued, equal and powerful.
Driven by the young people, their skills, stories and passions are amplified in work that raises the bar and challenges the norm. They are the future…
The Knotted Project’s Definition of Co-Creation
Our co-creation journey isn’t linear, it’s a responsive process guided by the instincts of the group, with opportunity to explore at all stages. It has the freedom to keep evolving and challenges us to take risks until we reach our shared goal. By readdressing the power balance within a space, and valuing each person in the room everyone has ownership of the decisions, direction of travel and creative outcome.
Through a shared experience we exchange a broad range of skills and creative techniques, inviting contributions, stories and opinions. Our Co-creation process becomes richer with time and resource, the more in-depth the journey the wider the impact will be for all involved.
By meeting young people where they are at, regardless of their starting point, The Knotted Project aims to maximise the potential in the room to empower young people to achieve something they didn’t think was possible at the beginning.
