The Art of Hosting

Open letter to the Art of hosting community

»A person who cannot ask for help cannot be trusted.«

Toke Mueller, Co-founder, Art of hosting


Dear facilitators and sympathizers of the Art of Hosting community all over the world,

My name is Žiga Novak, a facilitator, NGO leader, entrepreneur and member of the Slovenian Association of Facilitators.

I am politely asking for help with an online version of the Pro-action cafe format on the question: How can I motivate people to actively support the idea of the 40 Pro-action cafe events?

Short background information: I applied to an open tender organised by a Slovenian financial institution for a 10.000€ grant. The purpose of the application is to 1) gather funds to organise 40 Pro-action cafe events that will energise the owners of positive, socially responsible project ideas in Slovenia and 2) to promote the Pro-action cafe facilitation format in our country. The events would take place in a new and unique event venue (Walnut grove) located just outside the capital of Ljubljana. In order to reach the next stage of the selection process, I need as many votes of support as possible. The voting will end in 5 days, on the 14th of October 2014.

More info on the project is available on the following link (in Slovenian only):

Dear members of the Art of hosting community.

I have exhausted the promotion through my online social network. Please help me gather ideas on how to further promote my project among Slovenians or internationally. You can even support the project yourself – simply share the information among your local Art of hosting community or even click on the Podpiram (I support) button on the following link.

Thank you for all the ideas, shares and votes of support.

Yours faithfully,

Žiga Novak

I'd love to help, but you forgot to say that you have to be on facebook to vote, and I don't do facebook.
