A day to learn and exchange about holding space for Dialogue

In collaboratio helvetica we are hosting Dialogue Evenings, because we want to bring the format of dialogue to the peripheries to create deeper human connection as starting points to discuss the main challenges of our time.
We have found out that we love the nature of dialogue and the potential and new possibilities that the format of a dialogue can unleash.
Are you too, curious about holding the space for human connection and deep listening in a group? For Dialogue Evenings or dialogues in general? You think you can learn something from us, or we can learn something from you?
If the answer to this question is three times yes, we would like to invite you to join us for a day of learning and exchange about dialogue methods and experiences.

How will this day be?

The day will focus on holding dialogue:
Dialogue is a powerful format that allows us to come together to reflect about key questions that matter to us, cultivating meaningful conversations and to come up with impactful conclusions to shape our own context.
The day will be co-created:
The content is dynamically shaped by all of our different ways, tools and experiences with dialogue. As well the want o listen to and work with some of the questions that might be present.
The day will be pratical:
The frame will invite for lots of testing and trying out. It is our aim to get concrete, to practice holding dialogue, and not just talking about holding dialogue.

HOW DO WE USE DIALOGUE IN collaboratio helvetica?

Dialogue is part of the vision at collaboratio helvetica. Over the last year, we have been hosting open spaces (called Dialogue Evenings) between versatile groups of people in CH on different relevant societal issues or topics around the Sustainable Development Goals(SDG´s).

A Dialogue Evening is a 3 hour event, hosted by a local co-working space and facilitated by collaborate helvetica. Each Dialogue has a topic that can be more or less scoped (f.eks. “Gender Equality” as a topic by itself or “parenting” as a subtopic to Gender Equality). During the Dialogue Evening the participants goes through a facilitated process that helps them to connect, learn and reflect about the topic on a personal level, but also to open up new perspectives and solutions to the topic by using the collective intelligence and sensing of the group.
