How did you learn about Art of Hosting (please add the date and place) and what attracted you to it?
I read about in 'Walk Out, Walk On' and as volunteer president of a grassroots community development NGO called the Regional Social Development Council think it will be a powerful new way of seeing for us.
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 used some of AoH techniques with community groups but am pretty new to the practice. It does however resonate strongly with the ethos of our organisation and I hope it will focus our work.
What is the primary field/topic/focus in your hosting work?
We have a broad brief to help groups collaborate - but the pressing issues are affordable housing and homelessness, transport across region, and growing income inequality.
