The Connective Culture Series
Creating Connection

Creating Connection training assists with finding connective opportunities in day-to-day life, and gives practical tools to strengthen them.

This two-day training retreat commences the series and presents a range of processes which cultivate connection: to self; to community; to nature; and to cultural wisdom. Blending experiential activities with theoretical presentation the course facilitators provide their best tools for accessing creativity and actively participating in culture repair.

The Connective Culture Series is a training program that presents both modern and traditional knowledge about how to build and maintain a strong and resilient community. The series is made up of five parts covering creating connection, changemaker and leadership training, taking cultural action and becoming a facilitator.
