This page collects (possible) activities of the hosting community of practice.

See also: activity mapping

Possible directions:

  • Participatory learning, cross-sectorial experiments and creative processes (multistakeholder workshops)
  • Multisensory experiences (rituals, celebrations, immersive and participatory artworks)
  • Life-changing courses and programmes (personal and professional)
  • Retreats (in nature, unique landscapes, as well as cities)

Who initiates the activities?

  • 'clients': other individuals, groups, organisations, systems invite us to propose/design and host activities for them
  • the community: we design activities as a group and offer different 'packages' (joint project portfolio, see below)
  • individual members: each of us can bring our own projects to be supported by the group (either through consultation/advice or collaboration on each other's projects - see the "chest of drawers" or "process design lab" )

Existing activities

Internal
