The Community Organizing Resource Exchange (CORE) Conference brings together community leaders and technology developers for a weekend to collaborate and exchange practices, tools and strategies to create measurable change within communities.
Information about the Conference:
theCOREconference will help expose the inherent pillars that hold communities structures together and provide us with new leaderships insights into the human behavior practices (coherence building, dynamic governance, collaboration methodologies); technological tools (online community platforms, crowdsourcing software, collaborative wikis); platforms (offline, online, physical space, currency systems) and the purposes (collective intent studies, movement building strategies, business models) that underlie all types of communities and organizations.
To stimulate the mind, theCOREconference will provide a spectrum of ideas around community building and collaborative leadership, from the theoretical to the practical, covering such diverse topics as:
• Patterns in ecological biology
• The sacred in community life
• Instilling trust in virtual communities
• Collective intelligence
• Crowd sourcing
• Creative innovation
• Online movement building
• Multi-stakeholder collaboration
• Coherence building
• Dynamic governance
To stimulate the body, theCOREconference is designed as an immersive participatory experience for all attendees utilizing the entire 45,000 sq ft. of the Craneway Pavilion as its backdrop. Attendees will be guided through facilitated demonstration circles, collaborative team-building sessions and facilitated networking that will help weave the social fabric of those present into a powerful action community.
And to stimulate the spirit, theCOREconference is intended to inspire community activation and create community within the context of the three days. The medium is the message at theCOREconference as form and experience influence content. What will come through the weaving of community builders with one another will certainly catalyze the experience for all attendees.
