Constructing Space for Collaboration

Let's Get Physical! 

Physical space matters more than we think. The spaces we occupy—and the seemingly inanimate things in them—directly influence our mood, thoughts, levels of empathy, the quality of our engagement with others, our ability to retain information, and our tendency toward action. Why is it then, that when we come together to accomplish something (otherwise known as a meeting), we often don’t consider or design the meeting space itself? Or, if we do, we tend to default to an idea of what a meeting space should look like—stale hotel conference rooms, anyone?

Whether you’re dealing with international forums, ongoing weekly team meetings, or small community gatherings, come to this session to learn about simple, inexpensive practices you can implement to transform the places where you meet in service of greater outcomes and general goodwill. Participants can expect to leave with tips and tricks for creating practical and productive meeting spaces.

All sessions are pay-what-you-will starting at $20, payable at the door. We also accept an alternative payment of $10 + cans of food (minimum 5) to donate to the Easthampton Community Center.
