Date: Friday 12th March 2021, 10:00 – 17:15

Location: online

The symposium aims to bring together scholars and practitioners to exchange perspectives on working young people’s local ‘funds knowledge’ and imagine pedagogies that harness diversity and create richer opportunities. The symposium invites newer and more established scholars, students and practitioners to develop a set of proposals on the future of the FoK approach. The event aims to launch an international network of researchers and practitioners, inspiring future collaborations.
