The Art of Hosting—A new and ancient movement

Join an online conversation with Toke Moeller and Tim Merry
Live from Mahone Bay

Monday, March 27, 12:00-1:00 pm

Engage Nova Scotia is committed to shining a light on engagement tools, practices and examples that we can all learn from. When we heard that Toke Moeller was visiting Nova Scotia this month, we invited Tim Merry to interview him on behalf of Engage. Please join us for this special lunch-and-learn event.

Toke Moeller lives in Denmark and is co-founder of the Art of Hosting, a type of engagement that allows all kinds of people to “step up” and create the change they want to see. The Art of Hosting is now active on every continent worldwide. 

Tim Merry, also a senior Art of Hosting practitioner, is active in Now Lunenburg County and many other change projects throughout the province and internationally.

Please listen in as Toke and Tim explore questions like these:

What is the Art of Hosting and what difference does it make? What makes it both radical and common-sense at the same time?

The Art of Hosting doesn’t have a central office or paid staff, and yet it has quickly spread and become its own movement. What can we learn from this as we try to accelerate change in Nova Scotia?

How is the Art of Hosting enabling young people to become leaders within their communities?

The webinar will include opportunities for Q&A. We will be using Zoom, an easy-to-use computer platform similar to Skype. There will also be a phone-in option.

Scroll down and RSVP for free by March 23.
