San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Innovation: What more is possible when we invite the collective wisdom of diverse experience, skills and world views?
Sustainability: What does it really take to move forward wisely?
Impact: What would it look like to design for transformation instead of small change?
This Art of Hosting practicum introduces a way of working together that invites collective wisdom and innovation and that supports groups to move seamlessly from thinking together through implementation and prototyping.
Art of Hosting is a proven practice of utilizing participatory processes ~~ Circle, World Cafe, Open Space, Appreciative Inquiry and others ~~ in a way that engages and activates the passion, wisdom and possibility in groups of people with diverse wisdom, skills and social locations.
Trainers and Kelly McGowan, Nancy Fritsche Eagan and Rich Rivera are Art of Hosting practitioners with experience shifting the way we work, learn and innovate in movements, organizations, businesses and collaborations. The training is designed for people who want to host conversations that lead to wise action in their work, community, movements and personal projects.
