Welcome to participants of the Art of Hosting through Play, on its first edition at Mas Fontarnau, Vic, Spain!! (6-9 June 2013)

This group does not have any conversations yet.
Hey, congratulations! I've just read the text you wrote on your blog and it surprises me how "collaborative thinking" brings different professional approaches to a common and familiar place. I could replace the words in your text where you talk about LEED, buildings, and so on, for other ones that I use regularly such us learning/creative processes, education, art..., and it still would make sense. Relations within a group are the key to any shared experience.
This is FANTASTIC NEWS! Well done for the accomplishment!!
I appreciate you sharing not only what worked well, but also what was difficult, as normally we tend to learn about what has not worked ;+)
I've had a similar experience in one of the projects I'm working on. In every project there are key people that need "special treatment" in order for them to jump on doing things differently and letting go of hierarchy and control. If we forget this, then the risk is having them boycott the project, or undermining it in subtle and not so subtle ways.
Have a super great summer and hugs to you all,
Fellow AoH players. I am glad to share with all of you that I had the opportunity to apply some of the Art of Hosting techniques at the kick off of our new project in Greece. The result was overwhelming. I did a 4 day workshop with a group of 40 people and they said they never experienced something like this in a building project. But there were some difficult moments as well. One of the objectives of the workshop was to learn to co-design as a group and there was a strong resistance from the main architect who was not ready to allow other to influence his design. We had a seperate meeting to discuss this issue, but I realized I have to keep practicing and learning in order to deal with this type of challenges. But, overall, I am satisfied with this introduction to AoH and I have decided to do more workshops in order to get more experience. As you can see, I wrote a short piece on our website about the kick off Thanks again to all! http://www.greenlivingprojects.com/blog/2013/06/28/el-kick-off-de-u...
Hello friends in play!

Take good care,
Greetings from Mas Fontarnau!
A lovely spot, perfect to play and (do good) work...and yes perhaps they are synonyms ;+)
Wow, from your comments I can sense the playful energy rising up....
Bring whatever you would like to share with the group. And don't forget some warm clothing as it's a bit chilly at night.
See you tomorrow,
Nos vemos mañana, si queréis puedo llevar un balón o una muñeca para jugar, saludos a todos
See you tomorrow, if you want I can bring a ball or doll to play
Ready to play ... I wonder if play is just a fancy word for work :-)
