Opening space today at the Vancouver Art Gallery, for the United Community Services Co-op and about 70 people from their membership. Lots of interesting conversations about the non-profit sector and a pregnant sense here about something wanting to be born…a network, a learning centre, a practice group. We shall see what emerges.
A couple of things that I’m trying here include having people avoid handing in reports that are just bullet form lists (“bullets kill!”) and inviting graphical harvests. The client, playing on the idea of the art gallery location, provided everyone with an empty canvas to fill in, and I invited the groups to harvest something graphical that would complement any text that is also harvested. So far the results are terrific!
