The Art of Hosting Through Play

I am so excited about The Art of Hosting coming to The Actors Space this coming June! I am looking forward to learning about how to invite practices that inspire positive change in the community, how to host conversations that matter, how to harvest the collective intelligence and how to take wise action that lasts! And all of this will be deepened (is this a word? Sorry, I am Catalan…) by play!

This is the first time that this workshop comes to Barcelona region. I am very happy to invite my community to this workshop as I feel it will be so beneficial for everyone.

From the Art of Hosting web: “The challenges of these times call for collective intelligence. We must co-create the solutions we seek. The Art of Hosting pattern and practice is based on our assumptions that it is common sense to bring people together in conversation when you seek new solutions for the common good. We believe that when human beings are invited to work together on what truly matters to them, they will take ownership and responsibility for moving their issues and ideas into wiser actions that lasts”.


“The Art of Hosting and harvesting conversations that matter is a new practice of democracy that we really need in the world now.” Phil Cass, CEO, Columbus Medical Association and Foundation, Ohio, USA

“The art of hosting is a practice that heals the broken relationships between people.”- EU Commission official.
