An Un-‐Book Club
The purpose of an Un-‐Book Club – based on the concept of Open Spaces1 or Un-‐Conferences2 -‐ is to open up discussions of ideas and new learnings with others, without being limited to the same reading or resource. Participants bring information or knowledge about a topic/theme to a gathering and from there share in small and large group arrangements. Resources can come from: v books or articles v videos or TED talks v webinars or podcasts v personal reflections or composed writing pieces v sample structures, rituals, routines or systems v online sources or hardcopy examples v a recent conversation, thought, idea or musing….the list is endless! Discussions will be grassroots and based on the flow of the group; a facilitator will help participants to maximize the learning experience. Participants do not prepare presentations or anything formal – simply bring an idea, concept or resource to share with others to the event!
