[ arranging conversations ]


What are tools for shaping group conversations in ways that facilitate listening, trust, openness, inclusivity?
What would we like to involve in our intentions when we are speaking together?
How can we shift our default communication dynamics?
In a collective, what are ways for us to reflect upon and talk about how we’d like to talk with each other?

We invite you to a workshop that will explore conversation scores and silences as tools for shaping group interactions. We are interested in forms that can help create space, awaken our senses, and re-shape social choreographies. In a spirit of learning (ourselves very much included), we will guide the group through some simple formats, experimenting with roles, rhythms, speech, and silence. 

Workshop location: DojoDojo, Badenerstrasse 409, 8003 Zurich
When: October 3, 2021, 3:00 ~ 6:00 pm


Who are we? 

Eleonora Toniolo is a designer interested in community building processes: for her MA in Social Design she’s been exploring how silence can generate mutual listening and inclusivity in group interactions.

Jonathan Lorand is studying tools for group conversations around wishes and visions, both personal and collective, as part of his MA in transdisciplinarity at the ZHdK.
