Turning Point Network’s series of Knowledge Sharing events kicked off in Newcastle and continues in Liverpool.
The event in Newcastle began with Dougald Hine offering an inspiring talk to a packed Riverside room at the BALTIC in Gateshead. He spoke about the human nature of knowledge sharing, referencing a number of his own projects – including Space Makers, School of Everything – as well as examples by peers with whom his work has overlapped, since he emerged from the London School of Art and Business.
“A good meeting should feel like a conversation in the pub, and not make you feel like you’d rather be having a good conversation in the pub.” – Dougald Hine
Following on from Dougald, Michael Craven, an experienced Change Manager with a track record of developing and delivering knowledge initiatives for the likes of Royal Institute of British Architects and New Contemporaries, led a series of facilitated conversations between attendees. The session resulted in a map of knowledge and ‘knowledge needs’. The hope is that this map will be used as a tool to support peer to peer sharing between attendees.
