Having many brains, hearts and minds in a room together is an opportunity for building community and creating dynamic spaces for generative solution-making. We'll go over tips on what makes events run smoothly. We'll also explore different ways to design workshops, meetings and trainings that engage and draw out the collective wisdom in the room. Together we'll explore different models of working with groups large and small, including Open Space Technology, Collective Story Harvesting, World Cafe and more.
Date: Saturday January 28th
