Community Building: Space and Gateways

Just #WorkingOutLoud today to share two new illustrations around the Community Building work. This first one is about our role as Community Builders: it sits alongside a questions that asks which ‘self’ people can bring into a Community. It’s part of a broader notion that our role is less to ‘build’ and more to hold a safe space.

The second one considers our role to open up gateways into (or out of) a Community. In the wider work i describe how all communities have walls, indeed, the act of finding coherence erects those ways. We cannot (do not want to) tear them down, but we may wish to build gateways through them. To be permeable to ideas and talent, and to share stories out, and welcome new ones in.
