hallo folks,

Thought I'd bring my chair in this group.

I'm interested to see what moves in Belgium.

Flandres and Wallonia.

And to find like-minded people.

I am trying to introduce the organisation of a WC in Charleroi,

trying to form a group there.

I'm looking for some people with experience in hosting for tips and tricks.

If there is a WC anywhere soon, I'd like to know.  To get the hang of it again.  It has been a time since I was in such an event.

Hi all

just to let you know that Leire Jaime and I will be running a one-day workshop (The Power of the Pen) in fundamental graphic techniques on 14 May at the HUB Brussels. You will develop skills in a creative way that will enable you to flex them to your harvesting, facilitation, education or presentation needs - depending on your practice. There's some more info at or please get in touch. No drawing skills needed! Many thanks

Wonderful! And Ria also knows the Art of Hosting network in that area who are kindreds of the World Cafe as well.

Hi Anita,
I know Ria and her idea of a Holland-Belgium WC network appeals to me. We will start the ball rolling.

Warm regards,

Hi Eugene,
Ria Baeck who just commented here, knows many of the folks from the Netherlands. You can also contact Tatiana Glad (Tatiana Glad, or Peter Merry ( who will know folks in Holland doing World Cafe and other participatory approaches. Also, I can't figure out how to send you an e-mail directly for some reason, so I hope this reaches you!
With warm regards,

Hallo Jaap,
ik veronderstel dat ik/we als Vlamingen ook welkom zijn? Misschien dan de titel veranderen... zodat wij ons ook welkom voelen?
Ik heb een ruime ervaring in het hosten, dus als er vragen zijn, laat ze maar komen (start best een conversatie hier)
Met vriendelijke groet,

Dear Juanita,

Can you, as suggested, facilitate the connection between the World Cafe practitioners the Netherlands by passing on the emailadresses. I do hope the WC members won't object to that. Hope to hear from you soon.

We have a number of Cafe aficionados in the Netherlands whom I'd be happy to put you in touch with. Perhaps you can e-mail me directly at where I can cut and paste the e-mails more easily for you.
With warm regards,
Juanita Brown
