5-7 FEBRUARY 2014 – CHIANG MAI, THAILAND
Original Invitation follows:
Why we’ll gather
It’s time for humanity to have a larger voice in co-creating the new systems that will lead us into the future. Ci2i Global is building a global knowledge resource to support making that happen. If you are practicing co-creative approaches in working to achieve social change, join us in co-defining this field at the 5-7 February 2014 Learn/Share Lab for co-creative impact and innovation, Chiang Mai.
The Learn/Share Lab invites community, non-profit and corporate change leaders who are (or want to be) using co-creative approaches to engage stakeholders in identifying and solving social challenges together. As this event is being held in Thailand it may be of special interest to those in the Australasia region.
Participants will share case studies and practices with each other in order to collaboratively learn about, refine and support the spread of co-creative methods in local, national and international contexts. We will also explore the formation of professional support systems and resources for change agents who are innovating through co-creativity with groups and communities around the world.
What we’ll do
- Curated case study presentations about a range of amazing co-creative initiatives/outcomes, including who, what, why, and how they happened;
- Collaborative thought re-mix sessions for deconstructing the cases we’ve heard and refining how we understand co-creativity: what’s replicable, what’s context specific, how do we create contexts that nurture and enable co-creative magic?
- Small group work to develop proposals for supporting the effective spread of co-creative approaches and tools to more professionals in the emerging global space for social change.
Ci2i Global selected 9 individuals to present case studies of co-creative impact and innovation. Registration is open for changemakers around the world to join us. You can register here.
Where we’ll be
The Learn/Share Lab will be a residential event held over 2.5 days at the At Nata Jungle Resort – an intimate art-in-nature setting near the beautiful city of Chiang Mai, in northern Thailand.
