Peter Block’s Community in Change Camp

Please join us for our first session in 2010, on creating positive social change through civic engagement in community. Our January session is presented by community member Daniel Rose of Omakase Group and Mark Kuznicki of ChangeCamp.

What is the question that brings us together?

An important event in Toronto in 2010 will be the municipal election. It is a chance for Torontonians to have a collective conversation about the city we want, and to make the election one instrument in creating that desired future. In keeping with the spirit of the Designing with Dialogue group of encouraging positive change, Daniel and Mark will guide the group through some of the theory and techniques espoused by Peter Block, the renowned organizational consultant and change maker from Cincinnati, Ohio.

Among Peter Block’s recent books is the profound Community: The Structure of Belonging where he joins his own rich experience with techniques for conversations that we can explore for civic engagement. The session will inquire into Block’s practices through discussion and group exercise.

The presentation file for the session is now available.

We will start the evening by sharing our vision and plans for 2010, and a reflection on the lessons of 2009.  Please join us via Dwd on Eventbrite >
