an Invitation: Making Microsolidarity in Maastricht, NL
Hey all 👋,
Coming in HOT with an updated description!
I'll be hosting a participatory presentation to dig into the process and lived experiences of building a new mutual aid community in Maastricht, NL. Since February 2020 a growing amount of friends and I have been weaving ourselves to support each other more intimately and frequently in doing emotionally and financially fulfilling work. This is a moment for us to open the curtains and show what's happening – out loud!
@Nati Lombardo, @Richard D. Bartlett my partner @Beatriz Fonseca, and a few folks from our new community will be present to delve briefly into various lenses of our philosophies and practices (including Microsolidarity). We'll give most attention to hosting YOU in a participatory experience of what we've been doing.
⏱ Saturday 30 May 2020, 6:00-7:30pm Amsterdam time [virtual meeting].
A bit more info
Making Microsolidarity is an ongoing process initiated by me, Joshua. The intention has been to co-create a network of 20-30 people who support each other in doing emotionally and financially fulfilling work. Along this process the group and I have been learning and adapting methods of participatory process design, leadership, building community, peer coaching and hosting meaningful conversation. It began with a small group in Maastricht, Netherlands.
"Microsolidarity" is a social-design methodology synthesised from many minds with the help of Richard D. Bartlett of the Enspiral Network. Adapting the methods for a group in Maastricht, Making Microsolidarity is an experiment in weaving people to be actively connected with themselves and each other on more levels than usual.
We're working out loud and learning as we do in this messy, living and experimental process.
Who's this for? Anyone who is curious and/or actively working in fields of social process design, emotional intelligence, community building, mutual aid networks, peer-coaching, facilitation. This is also for those who are looking for inspiration to move into more depth in their relationships – both personally and work-related.
