Open Space Technology is one of my favourite dialogue methods: I have facilitated several dozens of them and I have participated in as many, and still I am amazed by the power of this tool.
For those of you looking for a comprehensive description of Open Space, I have made a one pager in Dutch summing up the most important elements : Fiche Open Space.
In the last few years, I have facilitated a few Open Spaces in the sector of Mental Health Care, bringing together care takers, people with mental issues and their family. Each of them a beautiful experience.
Below some pictures of those events, telling the story of an Open Space visually: from opening and making the agenda together to small group work and closing.
