Members told us they would like a space to meet online to chat, share thoughts, ideas, stay connected and have a chance to express themselves creatively. These sessions are a regular part of our online programme. We want you to be included in planning and running it. We would like to plan topics/themes for each session running up until the end of the year. You can lead an activity or discussion by yourself or team up with others. See the sessions outlined below for what we have coming up over the next few weeks.

We can offer professional support from the Arts Team (Terry, Clare or Kiri) to help develop your creative ideas before trying them out in a Community Check-in session.  If you have an idea for a topic you’d like to discuss, or would like to lead a check-in/check-out part of a session, or lead a warm-up or ice breaker then please email Matt: Don’t forget you can team up with others!

Who are these workshops for?

These workshops are for inducted Members of Cardboard Citizens only. If you are unsure whether you are a registered Member please email

Workshop Details

Fridays  – 11:15am – 12:30pm (first 15 mins for general check-in and to support with technical issues)

5 March – Time to Speak with Ian Kalman

12 March – After the Community Check In there will be a follow up conversation around the key findings and suggestions which came out of the first evaluation session for the future development of the space for discussion.

How do I sign up?

Please sign up in advance online if you want to attend, sessions will be capped at 14 people. If you haven’t attended an online Community Check-in before please try to sign-up a few days in advance which gives the team time to contact you for a check-in in advance of each session if needed. If a session is oversubscribed, we will create a waiting list so that if you have signed up but weren’t offered a place that week you will be offered a place the following week.

You can join the sessions using Zoom video call (uses internet data) or by calling via phone (charged at your provider’s UK landline rate). We do not want this to be a barrier for anyone who wants to attend so please let us know if you have any access needs or require any support to take part.
