We're really excited to let you know about the Open Everything Retreat, coming this fall to Hollyhock. Former WOC convener Mark Surman is at the helm, supported by Jason Mogus, David Eaves, and Mike Lewkowitz.
From the Open Everything website:
Open Everything is a global conversation about the art, science and spirit of 'open'. It gathers people using openness to create and improve software, education, media, philanthropy, architecture, neighbourhoods, workplaces and the society we live in: everything. It's about thinking, doing and being open.
This three-day retreat at Hollyhock is part of a series. There are also a number of half day events in cities around the world.
Centre for Social Innovation, Toronto, Canada - June 4, 2008 - half day chat [wiki]
Young Foundation, London, England - mid-August, TBD - half day chat
- Hollyhock, Cortes Island, British Columbia - September 3 - 6, 2008 - three day retreat [wiki]
- University of the Western Cape, Cape Town, South Africa - August 2008 - half day chat
Lien Centre for Social Innovation, Singapore - September 15, 2008 - half day chat
Eventually, the hope is that different kinds of Open Everything will happen all over the place – the above events are intended as starting points.
Please note that Open Everything is not a replacement for our annual Web of Change event at Hollyhock. However, if your work closely aligns with the driving ideas behind Open, then please do drop us a line and request an invitation.
