This 8 week bi-weekly series is for people who are interested in exploring their relationship with narrative questions. It is not a “how to” ask “better” narrative questions, but an invitation to explore the types of questions we feel drawn to asking, and why? An invitation to explore our hopes in asking questions, and the ethics we are striving to uphold in asking the questions we ask. Beginning October 2nd, we will meet biweekly via Zoom (except for once in the month of December) on Sundays from 11am -12:30pm NY time (October 2nd, 16th, 30th, November 13th, 27th, December 11th, January 8th and 22nd).
January 17, 2021 Collab Salon: Re-authoring Confinement: Creating a Collaboratory During the Pandemic
Around the world, Covid-19 profoundly impacts our everyday lives. As narrative practitioners we are trained to double-listen to problems, to pay close attention to the suffering as well as to initiatives and events that might not be predicted by the problematic stories. What are some of the sparkling moments where the dominance of the pandemic problem disappears? Please join us as we begin our new year with a range of contributors sharing experiences and the joy of collaborative projects across the world: making poetry and art, creating Covid inspired music, learning from Community gatherings and from our children.
What are narrative approaches to supervision? How does a group co-create respectful ways of exploring complex concerns and challenges that reflect the ethics of a just and accountable community? Shona and Vikki invited us into a conversation about supervision practices that contribute to a reinvigoration of professional identity, keep faith with what is given value, and build on an ethic of justice-doing. This online gathering welcomed old members as well as a number of Collab Salon members experiencing Zoom for the first time.
