9.00PREP SPACELiving in the Future Foxhole: How will we occupy the space?

Proposers: Global Synapses

Potential:
Jointly facilitated workshop by the Dartington School for Social Entrepreneurs, Schumacher College and Dartington Social Justice Innovation programme to step-in to the architectural plans for Foxhole and imagine our future use of the facilitates - individually and together.

Action:
To feed-in to the final stage of architectural design at Foxhole by testing and playing with how we might actually inhabit the building.

Who is invited?
For staff, volunteers and those connected with all three organisations - and anyone else who wants to help make the most of Foxhole rennovations.

12.00(Un) Wrap-up Session

Proposers:
Philip Franses and Claire Watson, Global Synapses

Potential
You know how wrap-up sessions can often be a bit, well, tedious? This (un) wrap-up will be an up-beat and lively alternative - topped-off with a celebratory lunch afterwards. It will bring together and relate all the exciting potentials brought up over the three days.

Aliveness
Together, we'll untangle the week's insights to make sense of what's emerging - what is alive - and where it might go next.

Who is it for?
Everyone connected with the Dartington estate. Virtual participation possible and very welcome.

14.30Future Visioning: Meeting the Emerging Future

Proposer(s): Gemma Adams

Potential:
A dynamic workshop to consider the changing world around us, and the implications for our work in the world. Together, we will explore some of the global trends that are shaping society and with the questions they pose for us today. What might a 'successful' response to these trends look like? We will use techniques and resources developed by Forum for the Future.

Action:
To playfully test our assumptions about how the world is changing, and the role of those living and working on the Dartington Estate in the year 2030.

Who is invited?
Anyone connected with the Dartington Estate who's looking for inspiration to move beyond business-as-usual.
Being Seen in Working Together

Proposer(s): Global Synapses

Potential:
A fun look at how we can change the way we are seen. We are taught matter works, through individual foundation of atoms, galaxies work, through individual aggregation of matter at their centre, life works, through individual actions of cells. Is it any wonder that we grow up thinking that we work by making ourselves visible in our separate identities?

Action:
Being Seen in Working Together asks the question how do we allow ourselves as a collective to be seen in our whole endeavour, where everyone has their own role in how this happens.

Who is invited?
Everyone who is either over-visible or under-visible within their work-place or those wanting new view of science.

A patterning workshop to explore the relationship between emerging plans and the identity of Schumacher College. What's the story that's already taking shape?

Action:
To create a future-facing identity for Schumacher College that's inspired by our 'next generation' initiatives.

Who is invited?
Anyone who's part of the Schumacher College community - no matter whether you're physically in Devon right now, or not. Virtual participation possible and very welcome indeed.
