Design Sessions

The Swarm provided a great beginning to the long journey we have ahead. At The Swarm, we created a draft purpose, draft areas for collective action and draft structure for the way we want to work together across different organisations and sectors. But we needed to spend more time refining this work and testing our thinking.

We took the work from the Swarm into a series of design sessions that took place at The Hive in Blackett during April and May. People volunteered at The Swarm to be part of the design sessions, eager to keep the work moving forward.

10-15 people participated in each design session – with record attendance from some keen community members who attended all four!

The topics for the design sessions were:

•  Purpose and Measures – 23 April 2015
