We want to create a series of interviews and follow up Q&As here on the platform with each participant in the run up to the different festival activities. We do this for three reasons:
It is a good learning opportunity and way to raise the quality of our discussions. If everyone has a shared foundation of knowledge, the conversations can go “deeper and further” much faster.
This gives both participants in the event, and those who cannot go, an opportunity to identify people who’s work is relevant to their own - and to meaningfully connect with one another.
We can better prepare the contents, facilitation and follow up of each event so that the experience is meaningful and generative to each participant. Also this gives people doing presentations or webinars an opportunity to know who their audience is and ensure their content is adapted to the context.
How you can help make this happen!
- Think of one person or more whom you think we should interview
- Reach out to them and ask them if they would be up for being interviewed
- Leave a comment with their name, and a bit about what you find interesting about their work and their contact info
