Free! Co-lab Taster Webinars

Wherever you are on your action research journey, we invite you to join in! 

Our 2019-2020 series of free webinars, 75-90 minute tasters for upcoming co-labs, are now complete. The coLABs are underway. 

There's quite a range! Yes. The work of ART (Action-oriented Research for Transformations) reveals itself through itself. The diverse co-labs enrich the larger AR+ protainer by opening multiple windows into regenerative society.  These windows are a mix of personal, interpersonal, and bird's eye systems perspectives. Their - and our -  integration in a social ecology enriches us as scholar practitioners.  At AR+ we refer to this as the integration of first-, second- and third-person perspectives necessary for our work to be transformative of self and community.

Mindfulness Integrating Creativity and Artistry

Oct 3rd at 11AM California time. Sessions start Oct 10th

Co-Stewards Hilary Bradbury, Jean Hartmann and Catherine Etmanski.  The emphasis in this co-lab is on going deep/deeper into the self.  It's for those who support others as facilitators/educators and who see value in inquiring into redirecting our own disconnects toward more mindful listening to self and other for more purposeful doing.

Working with Dilemmas

Co-stewards Anthony Hodgson and Hilary Bradbury.   Action research aimed at transformation inevitably provokes tensions in any group. In this co-lab, Anthony and Hilary introduce a deeper understanding of the nature and dynamics of such tensions and a method for how them navigate them collaboratively.
