The Journey

VALUABLE EXPERIENCE

 

THE PROFOUND RESONANCE OF WATER AND STRUCTURE IN COMMUNITY

Engaging interactive visualization, vision-storming and practical exercises interwoven with the element of story we facilitated a workshop at the Living Future unconference to explore the profound interconnectedness between water, structure, place, community and well-being.  A series of guided and collaborative activities lead participants through an exploration of individual and cultural stories and how they can help us create on a more profound level.  Designers, activists, visionaries, and planners left the session with a deeper understanding of the profound resonance of water and structure in community, a template and implementation tips for recreating this mindful process with small groups, and a collaboratively completed application example.
