The Community Organisers programme is a national training programme and
a grass-roots movement for social action. Organising is the work of building
relationships in communities to activate people and create social and political
change through collective action.
The Burslem Community Organisers are employed by the Burslem School of Art
Trust, which is located in the heart of their area of work. This means that
they have connections to the people of the community and local businesses,
building relationships and networks that are strong enough to support a long
struggle for change, developing community leaders and mobilising people to
take collective action to achieve a shift of power and significant social change.
The Burslem Community Organisers are funded by partneship of Locality, Coalfields Regeneration Trust and Burslem School of Art Trust
