Seed Sessions

Power Transformance

The ALE18 "Open Space First" program provides just enough structure for you to spontaneously create the event when we come together 22-24 August. You'll create a program that fully explores your questions of power transformance.

We've cultivated a few 'seed sessions' to trickle through the open spaces in the program.  We're limiting the number of seed sessions to be sure we provide abundant space for everything that emerges.
