Are you wondering how to get things done in groups with less hierarchy and more collaboration?  Come to this rare workshop opportunity with Rich Bartlett & Nati Lombardo from New Zealand.

Drawing on their extensive experience with Loomio (an online decision-making app originally written for Occupy, now used by thousands of people around the world) and Enspiral (a network of 250 tech activists experimenting with radical organizational forms), Nati & Rich combine storytelling, reflection, and participatory exploration.

They identify common challenges groups face when trying to collaborate, and offer tools and processes that have been demonstrated to overcome these common failure points. Whether you’re from a start-up or an established operation, a business or nonprofit or activist group, an artists’ co-op or a consultancy, this workshop can also serve as an opportunity to find out who else in the community wants to connect around this way of operating and nurture a network for mutual support.
