GatheringsIs there an issue you want resolved in your community? Or, do you have an idea to solve a community problem that you want to share or discuss with others? Through InCommons you can organize your own in-person and virtual gatherings that bring people together at the local, regional or state level to discuss, collaborate and solve.
In-person gatherings harness the power of face-to-face interaction to develop and strengthen relationships and create trust through personal connection. Additionally, in-person gatherings provide you opportunities to engage with diverse stakeholders in safe, transparent and uncommon conversations about community challenges. InCommons gatherings are carried out differently than conventional gatherings. They uphold a common set of principles. For instance, they utilize high quality facilitation that engages diverse perspectives and evocative tools (e.g. art and physical movement) used to inspire creativity and innovation. InCommons offers you a menu of trained facilitators, ideas for hosting a diverse group, suggestions for how to frame questions and design conversations, and techniques to progress with next steps.
Virtual gatherings eliminate the need for travel and enable you to broaden your scope of participants to include individuals throughout the state. Hosted online, you can engage in real-time discussions around community challenges, share tools and resources and connect with individuals that can help you avoid tackling issues alone.
