I’d like a small group to join me in designing / setting up a self-organising festival/conference/re-union – maybe lasting 4 days or so, low-budget and relaxed. It would be a way of carrying forward the spirit of open dialogue, and our trainings, at seriously low cost.
The design is open to modification and can be tailor-made for the needs of the group concerned. A small team, plus a larger group who are willing to try it out, would be enough to get it off the ground.
Also, anybody who knows of a low-cost and inspiring venue – where people could be housed cheaply, some in bedrooms, some in hammocks or camping-spaces perhaps – this would be a welcome contribution to the project.
I have seen this design tried and adapted in a variety of contexts, for different enterprises / communities, and I am convinced of its resilience and versatility.
It can also be a step towards the democratisation of our talents, knowledge and inspiration.
