Event description
Let's make LA better and more alive by creating more SustaVariety! For what that means, read on. Join us in person or online!

About this Event

We can make Los Angeles better and more alive by creating more SustaVariety! That's sustainable variety. It’s variety that continues, refreshes, renews. It can be enhanced by leveraging proximity thinking. Join us in person or online (details below) to get involved in some of our projects and to discuss what you're doing. We'll mainly explore and develop ways to create more sustainable variety with the proximity thinking (ProxThink) framework for creativity, collaboration and living. See the suggested online course below to quickly get up to speed with proximity thinking. You can join us monthly and/or have ongoing online interactions!

Los Angeles has lots of challenges, lots of potential, and already has sustainable variety in many ways. By focusing on sustainable variety and sustainable proximities (which can evolve together and reinforce each other), we can reorient our efforts, get energized, make Los Angeles better, and become more alive. You can get involved, in small to big ways, with or without money. Whether you attend or not, below are things we might do and ways we can create more SustaVariety for Los Angeles:

• For shared situations in our work, organizations, neighborhoods, communities, and region, use the Shared Situation Guide and/or the ProxThink growth model. More at: https://sharedsituations.wordpress.com https://proxthink.wordpress.com/growth-model

• For making the arts and entertainment around LA more lively and sustainable, use the Artsdown approach. More at: https://artsdown.org

• For creativity that enhances sustainable variety, use the ProxPatterns. More at: https://proxthink.wordpress.com/proxpatterns

• To get involved in other projects and groups for sustainable variety, visit: https://loughry.com

• To find and pursue other approaches for sustainable variety, start with the goal of creating variety that continues, refreshes, renews. See what this triggers and where it leads.

Suggested Proxri — Let's try no set prices for this. Let's use ProxRewards, also called "proxri," which are part of proximity thinking and are not limited to money (see https://proxri.org). We can proxri people related to benefits we gain from them now or in the future as a result of this event and group, and/or related to our interactions with them in this event and group. For the organizer (David Loughry), the suggested proxri per event is at least $3 per online attendee and at least $6 per in-person attendee via https://loughry.com/proxri, or some ongoing patronage level (getting you additional benefits) at: https://www.patreon.com/loughry

Suggested Online Course — To quickly start proximity thinking, and so we have some common language, take the online course "Let’s Be More Alive — Intro to ProxThink." There is a reasonable minimum proxri and also a trials option. More at: https://proxthink.thinkific.com

Location, Parking, Transit — At WeWork One Culver (see nearby map/address), we'll be in room 6D. When you arrive, check in with the guest registration tablet by scanning your photo ID. Recommended parking is a short walk away and should be $3 to $4 for 2.5 to 3 hours (see https://www.culvercity.org/how-do-i/find/parking/downtown-parking). There is also parking in the building for $9/hour, max $25/day. Public transit is nearby. More about this location: https://www.wework.com/buildings/one-culver--los-angeles--CA

Attend Online — You can also attend via your computer, tablet or mobile device. See the following link before the event: https://proxthinkriver.com/guide-for-attending-online-events

The in-person attendee limit is about 15. The online attendee limit is 195, but will be less interactive (mainly audio, screen-sharing and chat, with options for some limited voice/video).

This process uses the ProxThink Terms of Use (https://proxthink.com/members/about/terms-of-use.php), which boring as it is, may be the friendliest terms you've seen. Why? It's a better fit for our connected world.

I hope you'll join us!
