Transcript for Collaboratory Episode, “Building Trusting Relationships”. Features guests, Ali Clinch, Robin Davidson, Natalie Barr, Aruna Venkatachalam, and Anni Doyle.
Collaboration, cooperation, co-design, co-production, co-creation – the list goes on. The meanings of these terms may seem obvious, but do we always know if others are interpreting them in the same way? Why is it important to come to a shared understanding of the terms we use as we come together and work together over time?
What can help to make or break a co-creative process? How can individuals and organisations enhance what works and minimise what doesn’t in practice? Listen to this episode of Collaboratory as our guests share the learnings they’ve gathered over the years about what can help enable co-creation to happen, as well as what can create barriers to its success.
We’re thrilled to welcome you to the first season of Collaboratory, a podcast that will explore what creating things together can look like in practice, and how we can put things in place to help us do it well, and enjoy the process along the way.
In this episode, Dr Diana James shares some of her early experiences of cultural co-creativity and the relationships and learning which laid important foundations for the Songlines: Tracking the Seven Sisters exhibition to take place. She reflects on some of the back-end and relational structures that underpin the work that got presented in the exhibition and shares practical insights about tools and approaches to navigating value and agency across the intercultural and cross institutional spaces of a project like Songlines.

There are just so many “co” words in circulation right now. What do they all mean? Are there any agreed definitions? Do we even need shared meanings of these buzzwords to actually get anything done together?
In this episode, we explore some of what people mean when they use “co” words. We also hear a little about the histories of some of the ideas which have shaped our usage of these words and the ideas that they point to.
While collaboration and co-creation are often presented as what we want to do and what is needed in a particular context, the systems and organisational environment in which collaborations happen are not always supportive of what it takes for them to be successful. Despite our best intentions, we aren’t always ready or able to be really effective collaborators. In this episode of Collaboratory, we explore some of what can enable and constrain collaborative practice at organizational, project and individual levels.
