April 3rd - April 5th, 2009Grassroots in our area have planned the first ever Open Spaces conference in Houston. This is a very affordable ($25) and flexible conference for people to be able to attend since it starts on Friday and runs through the weekend.
What is Open Spaces?
Open space is guided by a few simple but powerful principles:
Whoever shows up is the right group. Whatever happens is the only thing that could have. Whenever it starts is the right time. When it's over, it's over.
An Open Space conference's agenda is decided upon by the conference participants during the opening of the event.
You can identify an issue relating to the theme of the conference for which you have a genuine passion and for which you will take real responsibility.
Think of powerful ideas that really grab you to the point that you will take personal responsibility to make sure that something gets done at the conference.
You may lead sessions, you may participate as an attendee, you may take responsibility for capturing proceedings, or you may just hang out in the halls and talk with interesting people.
Registration is now Open
