FORMAT AND METHOD
Our workshops balance large-group conceptual learning with practical application, small group work, and one-on-one coaching and mentorship. We believe there is a lot we can learn from one another, and we design our workshops to weave together the experience of the practitioners in the room. We allow space for emergence in our design and we value creativity, play, rigor, and good food.
