Hosting Conversations about Questions that Matter

Art of Hosting and World Cafe in Bundaberg, Australia

Mary-Alice Arthur shared this beautiful story and harvest of an event she co-hosted in Bundaberg, Australia. The World Cafe was featured in the program so she kindly agreed to allow me to post it here in the World Cafe StoryNet.

I think you'll find it as interesting and informative as I did; thank you, Mary-Alice!

Here is the harvest document (download the 1.5M pdf: Bundaberg_Harvest ) and this is an excerpt from her introduction:

This harvest (from a 45 person meeting in Bundaberg, Queensland, Australia) might provide an interesting framework for others:
  • Welcome & framing
  • Check in circle
  • Teach:  Living systems & mechanistic worldview + chaordic path + FourFold Practice
  • World Café
  • Lunch
  • Sharing stories of practice + harvesting
  • Collective mindmapping
  • Working groups
  • Check out circle
