The State of Publishing

October 8, 2012 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$10

A focused roundtable on PUBLISHING.

There are so many things we can learn from one another. What’s worked. What hasn’t. What lessons we’ve learned from running newspapers, magazines, blogs or making photos, videos, or status updates. This forum invites a round view of perspectives to get back to learning from one another. Come with an open mind, and be ready to listen as well as share your view. Great conversation has a center, not sides.

Meet:

  • Photographer John Gessner,
  • A surprise guest from the Independent,

WHY WE’RE HOSTING THIS

Orangutan Swing is dedicated to creating offline conversation space. We use the techniques from Edward de Bono’s Six Thinking Hats as well as William Isaacs’ Dialogue and the Art of Thinking Together for our facilitation.
We’ve conducted more than 200 conversation tables in Seattle, Durham, and County Cork, Ireland, since 2005, and this year, our goal is to make 30.
So far, we’ve hosted “Make: What’s the creative process?”, “Scale: How do you know when and if to grow?”, “(re)WORK,” to name just a few.

Learn more about Orangutan Swing’s dialogue design.

Funds raised from Orangutan Swing events go towards production and administration of future ones. Be a part of our story. Join our conversations by registering at the top of this page to be in the know! 🙂
