The Art of Hosting

Art of Hosting
January 24-26, 2017 in Tofino



The times we are living in call for more effective meetings, better engagement processes, participatory leadership and the ability to craft strategy from collective wisdom. The Art of Hosting is an engaged learning experience for leaders, change makers, educators, facilitators and others to come together to develop new skills in hosting meaningful conversations.

In this three-day workshop participants will learn:
• How to invite and convene meaningful conversations

• New skills to further engage community

• Facilitation strategies

• How to collaborate to address complex community issues

• Personal practices that support strong community leadership

And you will have the opportunity to engage your burning questions and bring your current work challenges forward!


Your hosting team has decades of experience teaching and utilizing participatory leadership practices in almost every conceivable setting, from non-profits and social justice movements, faith communities, Indigenous communities and social institutions, education, the corporate sector and government. They are experienced facilitators, coaches and leaders in their own right, and are stewards of the global Art of Hosting community.
