Interpreting and Reclaiming Community Leadership

I presented this week on my Podcast, Conversations from the Hot House, at the Public Pedagogies Institute (http://www.publicpedagogies.org/news/hot-house-podcast/) Seminar Series on ‘Publicness’.

I didn’t have enough time to fully unpack how we interpret the term “community leadership” so I thought I’d start a series here. In Hot House programs we start by doing this through a quotes activity that provokes a conversation about some of the ways people see “community leadership”. In the process we reclaim the term “leadership”, centre it in community relations, and realise that it’s a strength we can all enact and grow in others.

Much of my thought on community leadership is informed by Community Development values and frameworks, so the first quote is a guide for both my professional practice and for community leadership.

Please let me know in the comments if any of these quotes resonate with your understanding of community leadership…
