Tasting the Future: tangy fresh process

As you may have noticed, I’m a process aficionado.

I love to hear about innovative ways of helping people have the conversations they need. I love to try out new processes as a facilitator and a participant. I network with fellow facilitators
through AMED as well as the IAF and a facilitators’ group on linked-in. I read about unorthodox approaches, and sometimes I even try them with paying clients.

On Monday June 28th, I had the great treat of being a participant in someone else’s workshop. There I saw for real – not in a training setting – open space, world cafe, graphic facilitation and live plenary mind
mapping all used during the same meeting.

The event was the first ‘assembly’ for Tasting the Future, a collaborative whole-systems attempt to innovate the food system. It was organised by WWF, ADAS, the Food and Drink Federation and Food Ethics Council. Facilitation was provided by Hara Practice and Natural Innovation and other members of the hosting team. There were also some people doing graphic recording, from Intuitive Intelligence Training.

Some exciting conversations and actions emerged, and you can read more about them on the Tasting the Future ning. I’ve shared some of the things I learned about process on my blog, here.

Hi Belina

The graphic facilitators were from Intuitive Intelligence Training - I didn't get to meet them personally, but I think they did a great job.

It's a shame their recording space was tucked away at the back of the hall in a dark space, I don't think people got to see it as much as they'd have liked.

Hi Penny - GREAT post. I was wondering what the plant pictures where doing on the site - now it is all clear. Who was the graphic facilitator?
