How did you learn about Art of Hosting (please add the date and place) and what attracted you to it?
I was invited to participate in an Art of Hosting Illinois event and just recently participated in a two day workshop (Oct 10/11, 2011). I am attracted to the Art of Hosting group to have colleagues in which to learn and practice my skills as a host and a participant in collective action processes.
Tell us about your experience with Art of Hosting as part of your life and work. What would you say your competence in it is? (new, starting practitioner, experienced practitioner, steward)
I have dabbled in various processes as a learner and a host for engaging in conversations in communities about issues that matter to them. I would say I am an intermediate practitioner.
What is the primary field/topic/focus in your hosting work?
Working with communities around issues they care about. My hosting work has spanned from communities preparing for the aging demographic to developing more responsive systems to support children and youth impacted by domestic violence.
