The Art of Hosting

Hello Everyone,

As you might be aware, Egypt is undergoing political changes and it's becoming harder to maintain the same spirit and conversations among Egyptians. There is even a threat for peaceful demonstrations to evolve violent which happened in a few cases.

I'm currently evaluating starting a multi-stakeholder campaign to create conversations among Egyptians from different political positions .etc 

Below are a bit more details what I'm thinking about:

Challenge?

As political and social consequences of June30 movement emerges it becomes a challenge for Egyptians to avoid labeling and hate-speech making sustaining respect and co-existence on the long term a possible challenge.

Solution?
Spreading a scalable DIY event model based on the Art of Hosting practices to bring together a diverse group of people from opposing sides for a dialogue focusing on what they have in common and following-up with proper media coverage to scale the impact around Egypt

I'm wondering if you might be aware of any similar initiatives have taken place around the world and any advice suggestions for such a movement to evolve?

Thanks a lot

Hello, I like your initiative. It seems to be very important who invites if in a heated atmosphere you want people to come. So the first step is to build a hosting/calling team that already represents the mix that you want to get to meet. 

I had been in touch in early 2011 with a few different revolutionaries, some Art of Hosting trainings and gatherings took place in Egypt, so there could be a start.

Hello Abdelrahman,

You have a great dream! But, if I may give you one advice: post your request on the Art of Hosting emaillist; that will give you more response than your posting here; at least way more chance! (not too many people check here for the newest topics...)

With love from Beligum,

Ria

Thanks a lot for the advice Ria, but I'm unable to locate the mailing list as the website is done, any idea where I can reach this mailing list?

Thanks a lot
