Collaboration:  it’s at the heart of what makes shared spaces so powerful, but how often do you find yourself wondering how to do it better?

Denver Shared Spaces is expanding its approach to peer-to-peer learning this year.  For the past three years, we have hosted quarterly gatherings of shared space practitioners to learn, network, and share their experiences.  These events have seen over 150 participants representing 25 different shared space centers from across the metro region, hosted by a broad range of for-profit and nonprofit shared space centers.

This year, we are kicking it up a notch.  Instead of 4 events on 4 different topics, we have curated series focusing explicitly on cultivating collaboration through shared spaces. Join us as we explore this topic – defining it, exploring the skills and practices which foster it, and tackling the unique challenges collaboration presents within shared spaces, across sectors, and in the larger communities we serve.

During each event, Lydia Hooper will be creating live-drawn illustrations that will visually capture our ideas and processes.  These will be developed into a final product in early 2016 to give a retrospective on our collective journey.

Each Learning Community session is $15 when purchased individually or purchase a Series Subscription that includes all four sessions for $40.  In addition to the content, admission include snacks, beer and wine, and non-alcoholic beverages.
