    Tools and Culture for Participatory Organizing

    Organizing democratically is hard! How do we hear from everyone and still get work done? How do we grow a collaborative culture while we still live within a competitive society? When nobody is the boss, how do we handle money, information, and power?

    Rich and Nati have been engaged in the craft of participatory organizing for more than five years, starting with Occupy in 2011, co-founding Loomio (a worker co-op and social enterprise building software for collective decision-making) and Enspiral (a network of 250 tech activists experimenting with radical organizational forms).

    We're touring through the US, and will be stopping in Portland to offer a workshop on collaborative culture and non-hierarchical organizing.

    In the workshop we'll identify common challenges that groups face when they try to collaborate, and offer tools and processes that have been proven to overcome these common failure points. Most importantly, we don’t just tell people about participatory organizing, we will practice it together, co-creating the workshop and learning by experience.

    To maximize accessibility, we have a sliding scale of ticket prices. If you still can't afford it, but you really want to be there, send us an email at [email protected]

    Spaces are limited :)
