Open Space Technology (OST) is principally credited to Harrison Owen who brought his experience of whole community decision making circles in African villages to North America and has spent his life sharing the knowledge. It’s a process now used by businesses, organisations and communities around the globe to help find solutions to complex problems. OST is based on what has heart and meaning for participants, with emergence and self-organising as fundamental principles.
I have an intuitive sense that the principles of Open Space are in some way linked with my own and other people’s processes of writing. However, it wasn’t until I was asked to design a series of seminars to help young creator-performers develop their business skills that I began to connect the dots …..
This relational journey for me is on-going. I anticipate that, amongst other things, this AMED Writers’ Group workshop will focus on:
Come and join me in this exploration.
What to bring/prepare
Please simply bring along your passion for your work, whatever it may be. And perhaps something to write with!
Lin currently lives in Canada. She consults in the private, public and voluntary sectors in Canada and in the UK. All of her work in change management is based on the belief that, if people feel safe, they have the capacity to dream. And it is that dreaming that will change their lives, their organisations and perhaps the world.
She has two life-long passions. One is the health sector – because it is so complex, always changing, and there are never any easy answers. The other is theatre and the arts, because there is something in the artistic endeavour that has managed to outlast every type of government and business.
Lin has a long standing association with AMED and in particular with the AMED Writers Group. It’s one of the things she misses most about the UK. So, whenever she can, Lin tries to organise her trips across the pond to coincide with Writers Group meetings.

Cost (payable on arrival) - Full AMED Members: £10; Networkers and Guests: £12.50
You are welcome to bring your own lunch. Tea, coffee and water will be served.
And afterwards – the large round table has been reserved for our exclusive use in the Ship Inn, just across the Kennington Road from Roots and Shoots.
Please get in touch if you have any questions or suggestions, or if you have ideas for a future AWG session.
Best wishes. Bob E: firstname.lastname@example.org
