LLP Inclusion Conference: Aunty’s trip to Birmingham

On the 19th and 20th June, we took a trip to the LLP (Lifelong Learning Programme) Inclusion conference at the International Convention Centre in Birmingham.  As a result of our Youth in Action project Pop Goes The Workshop, we had been invited to exhibit by the YIA coordinators at the British Council.  We jumped at the chance as this was an opportunity to find out about other learning and skills-sharing opportunities, see what other organisations across Europe were doing and say thank you to Youth in Action/British Council for taking a chance on a rather bizarre project!

We learned about so many fantastic projects and met lots of lovely people who have given us plenty of ideas including some possible trans-national projects… squee!
We <3 Grundtvig!

We came back to Blackpool, buzzing with ideas and with a notebook full of contacts, good job!

P.S. if there was a prize for stall that looks most like a craft fair, we would have won, hands down!

Knitta please!…
