Tuesday Ryan Hart and I have been thinking and dreaming, planning and scheming, creating and collaborating together for quite a while, and now it’s time: we’re co-branding!
After almost 10 years of working together, the scale of work we’re being asked into continues to grow, and we wanted to formalize our collaboration. We’re really excited and wanted to share it with everyone.
Hear a bit more about it in our short video below!

Tim recently partnered with Bravespace to deliver a live draw keynote for Education, Research, Development and Innovation (ERDI). I introduced Shared Work - a model created by Tuesday Ryan Hart that I have been part of developing. Shared work is seeking to bridge the work of social justice ad systems change by looking at how we can work together across difference over time. We are looking for more venues to do more of this! Drop me a line if your are interested ...

In 2016 we worked on the Spring Garden West Public Engagement - it as was great process that lead to major changes in the design influenced by the public input. Here is a video from the developer talking about how they think development should be happening based on their experience working with us. I hope it could be useful for anyone trying to build a case for proper engagement in the design of infrastructure:
Follow the process from the beginning. This document illustrates the collaborative process on how the design evolved based on a dialogue between the public, the developer and design professionals. I hope this illustration of the engagement process can be used as material to support other projects. Check it out here or download it below:
Just before leaving the event in Slovenia Mary Alice Arthur interviewed me. Here is what I had to say in response to her questions about Participatory Leadership, practice and where the work is going from below. You can see a full harvest from this excellent event here and here's the link to the summary of the track Toke and I ran together 'Making An Honourable Living'.
Right before me my friend, mentor and co driver for the trip Slovenia was interviewed too on similar questions. Here is what he had to say ...
Check out this short video introducing a learning track I am doing at the Practitioners Gathering in Slovenia in October. I am excited to be doing this with my old friend and mentor Toke Moeller. The video introduces the track and also has some highlights from a conversation we had recently.

During the two days we have together we will explore the journey of making a living through staying connected to our integrity. On the first day we will look at one or two examples of applying Art of Hosting to large scale public engagement work - where money, purpose and power mingle together with enormous potential and great risk. On the second day we follow the trajectory of applying Art of Hosting as a practice in the world but also as business that pays the bills and leaves you with some profit at the end. Please come prepared to dive into provocative conversations with other participants, to explore models for public engagement and Art of Hosting as a business, and to dig deep to discover your own business ethic. This module will be co-designed by Tim and Toke on their road trip from Denmark to Slovenia, Tim will lead the sessions and Toke will be joining to give one or two teachings, his health permitting.
We’re going to have some fun.
We’re going to dive deep and learn a bunch about ourselves and our work.
We’re going to prepare for the future that is coming to meet us in the most practical way possible.
How about it? You in?
Tim and Toke
