SocialDreaming@Work 2020: SD Master Class & Introduction, 24th-26th January 2020, Amsterdam

Join us this January 24th through 26th for a comprehensive training in the use of Social Dreaming in organizations and groups. This program allows you to experience the innovations offered in our dreams and the realization of their impact in groups, organizations and communities.

Social Dreaming(SD) was discovered and developed by W. Gordon Lawrenceto work with our dreams in the context in which we live. SD helps us understand and use one’s dream as a window into the daily systems and interactions we engage, becoming a tool for learning and development. SD has been used successfully for over 40 years in for profit and nonprofit organizations, including academia, government, corporations, disparate groups and numerous other settings around the world. Whether for strategies, ideation, negotiation, understanding conflict, communications, consultancy, collective artistic endeavors, and so on, SD has been instrumental in advancing our mutual understanding in the groups, organizations and communities in which we live.

Program Overview:  There are two tracks to the weekend’s training:

 SD@Work – Master Class (3 days) is designed to train individuals in the art of hosting a SD matrix. We offer both theory and practice in SD and the role of host. Our objective is to provide you a solid foundation to further explore dreams in groups and incorporate SD in your practice, while connecting you to an international community of SD practitioners. The training is designed for participants with previous SD experience and provides an opportunity to share and explore:

◆   the theory and practice of SD;

◆   experiences in the SD host role;

◆   the history and current developments of SD;

◆   practical applications and case studies;

◆   mentoring and peer-mentoring for ongoing reflection; and

◆   co-creating the international SD community of practice.

SD@Work – Introduction (1 day)provides an opportunity for participants with basic SD experience to explore its power and process by attending a full-day of SD matrices, reflections and learning with the SD@Work Master Class.

Barbican: Social Dreaming Matrix—Daria Martin's "Tonight the World"

Using Daria Martin’s exhibition Tonight the World as a springboard, this event explores the collective unconscious in the context of today’s society. Taking place in the exhibition space, you’re invited to share your dreams and thoughts in this open environment. This session is about exploring connections, rather than interpreting dreams themselves.
