Join Design with Dialogue from 6-9 pm on the second Wednesday of every month at OCAD’s sLab. We are a community of practice who learn together how to lead conversations for meaningful action through participatory design, strategic dialogues and the co-creation of emerging facilitation methods.
August’s session will be hosted by Kaleem Khan and Peter Jones based on the design-friendly practices of Appreciative Inquiry (AI) and World Café. Due to interest from last month’s participants, we will move forward with our group’s scenarios (for a near-future Toronto) as triggered by themes from our experiences of recent G20 events.
To address the concern for “What should we do now?”, we’ll use AI to create a positive framework for working together and then gather in a World Café to generate new possibilities for action.
Improv play and drawing are rumored for this session. For newcomers to visual thinking, we introduce approaches to structured and informal sketching to enhance the dialogue with a graphic representation of our conversation.
Please join us for another lively, engaging and educational session and forward this invitation along to anyone you know who might be interested in attending.
