Transforming the Way We Gather
Art of Hosting Portland
Portland OR, 2016, 2017
In collaboration with Art of Hosting Portland; Jessica Riehl, Kevin Hiebert, and Tenneson Woolf
I worked on the design and facilitation team for the Art of Hosting Portland's annual three-day training offered to approximately thirty participants. The event explores the culture of groups and how we build communities for equitable and inclusive decision making. The event consists of large group activities and smaller focused workshops. I collaborated with the team to design the structure of the activities and co-facilitated training sessions. I also developed a large-scale participatory drawing that maps the activities and significant moments of the event. The drawing works to non-hierarchically gather the experiences and learning happening during the vent.
