A few of our hunches turned out to be not quite right or a little too right this week. How do you encourage divestment? How do you teach? How do you spread? As always, more iterations required.
This week, we climbed out of our studio, out of our meetings, out of our cars, and out of our contexts. We had lunches, dinners and coffees with families. Just being with people is always transformational. And it’s been no exception this time around.
Our family project team has grown from two to three! Carolyn joins us this week. Her role is an innovation (and therefore an experiment): a way for us to get better at building the capacity of people within services and systems to do different.
We’re now working in, with, for and between families in South Australia to enable more to thrive. The aim is to co-create some sort of cross-community platform, not another service or program. That means we’re looking for ways to support existing organizations and institutions to do different, rather than just doing it ourselves. Do you have ideas for how to do that? We’d love to hear.
