Yesterday Joanna Hubbard and I hosted a open space conversation as part of a conference about the church and the post secular public space in the city. We had somewhere between twenty and thirty participants.
I began by interviewing Joanna regarding her role at Marion Life. This gave participants with a feel for the ideas and principles behind Assets Based Community Development.
The Open Space opened with an invitation to make a pitch to the question “What is the most important thing we can do now?”
Six items went up on the market place.
I’ve posted our handouts.Open Space at Post Secular Conf Sept 2013
We concluded the time with a conversation about Open Space Technology, its strengths and weaknesses.
