Back by popular demand, we are delighted to be working with Schumacher College Ecological Design Thinking Masters to deliver this short course in February 2018.

We will be running a new and refreshed week-long course from February 26th to March 2nd, 2018.  During this course, we will be focussing on how we design Invitations to Join In that enable us all to learn together how to flourish living within the Earths Ecological limits.

‘This course was so rich and powerful. It was a gorgeous, plentiful delight on all levels. The facilitators and teachers were quite remarkable and this week was without doubt the most powerful educative experience I have ever had.’  – Past Course Participant’ 

Activating participation is an essential craft The Art of Invitation shares a range of approaches to Invite people to Join In. Participants learn by doing and develop their own plans, activities and skills for change for their own projects, organisations and communities.

aoi2Join us for creative exploration through sessions focusing on inspiring case studies, specialist workshops and presentations from contributors. This will be combined with practical group work, celebration, solo reflection time, and 1:1 mentoring to develop individual practice and process.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own project ideas, plans and experiences as material to develop within the course.

At the end of the week you will come away with new creative tools for change that can resource you and the projects, communities and organisations that you are involved with and give you the confidence and skills to create new ones.
