The Community Canvas
Communities have been around for as long as humanity exists, but in today’s global world, where many feel isolated, lonely and divided, strong communities are more needed, and can be more powerful, than ever. Allowing like-minded people to come together and interact can help us tackle big challenges, bridge differences and unleash creativity.
So how do you “build a community”? An excellent resource is the Community Canvas
The canvas has three sections – identity (blue), experience (red), structure (green) – which are divided into 17 themes.
For each of the 17 themes, there is a set of questions that will help find the right answers for your own community, plus worksheets to make the questions actionable.
