Colab Auckland, New Zealand
Colab are launching a Social Innovation Hub in 2017. The hub will provide a way to connect and awhi the network of community members, practitioners and organisations surrounding the course. It will provide a foundation for research and related events in the community and be a place to publish stories, case studies, news in the area and inform each other about upcoming events. We’d love to be able to profile local stories and mahi and we have already gathered material as part of a video based case study research project some of you have participated in this year. If any of you would like to share your work, ideas and dreams we have a call out for blog posts, video excerpts and articles and will start feeding these in to the Hub early in 2017.
One of the Hub’s first public events will be one day symposium on Impact Evaluation to be held on May 19th. This will be an opportunity to explore issues and emerging practice around how we design for, account for, and capture impact and value of social innovation initiatives and efforts.
