July DwD 7.14.10 | Dialogue & Framing Reality

Written by . Filed under Retreat. No comments.

July’s session was Framing Reality and Scenarios of Social Meaning, hosted by Greg Judelman and Peter Jones.

In each session this year we have explored a pressing issue or question from the group’s experience, or brought to the sessions as a concern for dialogue. Reality handed us a good question after the recent G20 meeting.

We explored ways of framing the concerns we sometimes call “problems.” Impelled by the urgent and messy mix of issues we saw emerging following the G20 security event in Toronto, we inquired into the framing of the situation. What are the opportunities inherent in the problem as constructed? How do we establish and pierce through a problem frame so that the true concerns we share in common might emerge?
