For the September meet-up we are running an open spaces session with the theme Culture.
For those who have never experienced an open spaces meeting they are powerful tool for engaging groups of people in discussions to explore particular questions or issues. We are looking for people to come forward with ideas for questions to pose or discussions to have around the theme. The only prerequisite for proposing a question is that you will host that discussion and summarise the conversation for the benefit of anyone unable to participate. You do not need to be an expert on the topic you just need to have an interest in the outcome and a willingness to participate it the journey.
There is a good write up of the open spaces format here to whet your appetite.
See some of the topics proposed so far here
