Fish Bowl

FishBowl
Similar to a traditional panel, there are 4-6 discussants on a topic. Instead of facing an audience in a row with a moderator, however, the discussants sit in a circle with the audience in concentric circles around them. This witnessed conversation on a topic can be quite powerful, helping to bring clarity and shared experience to everyone attending.

Open Space

Open Space
Open Space is at the heart of almost every unconference we design. It allows groups from 5-2.000 people to create an agenda live in less than an hour for a complete multi-track conference. Participants are given simple guidelines that help the day flow. Then, at the close of a day, everyone gathers together to share what unfolded.

Black Market of Knowledge

Hannah Hurtzig explains the black market of knowledge.

The transfer of knowledge as a communicative and performative act. The starting point is an interesting and current topic on which local knowledge has been accumulated. The market creates a space to retrieve this knowledge. The individual conversations of experts and discussion partners can be followed by observers (”black listeners”).
