Event: Online Zoom Forum: Place-Making.

Date: Wednesday 12 May 2021.
Time: Forum: 6.30pm-8.30pm.
Event Description: Spirit@Work – Three Interconnected Explorations:

Re-Purposing ~ Place-Making ~ Well-Being

Placemaking – Spirit@Work?

Place is primal, and potent; the sense of place is almost like a sixth sense. The invitation is to explore the territory beyond ordinary everyday place, and its grounding of our lives. What and who is involved in the making of place? What about the act of placemaking, by placemakers, as another arena of manifestation of Spirit@Work? The forum will be open to a range of perspectives and contexts based on the lived experience of participants, feeling into the territory between the personal and the universal; placemaking as a progression of our sense-making and meaning-making. Making places we might all call home. Heart-and-soul-work. Community spirit at work. Whole-making work – opening into the realms of wellbeing, the next forum focus.

Format: Each forum will consist of an inquiry into different forms of Spirit@Work. The two hours will be programmed in three roughly equal segments – divergence, emergence and convergence.

The first will focus on surfacing a diversity of possible perspectives, based on several brief invited provocations (mini-keynote presentations), supplemented by volunteered participant offerings.

These in turn will form the basis for small-group break-out discussions focused on emergence of new perspectives or emphases, to be reported in the final plenary.

Aided by a few designated ‘key listener’ offerings, the closing segment will aim for some convergence (common-meaning-making) around themes and questions worth pursuing further, perhaps in a longer future ‘day conference’ format.
