14:00pm UTC–15:00pm UTC Your time: JavaScript Disabled
In our first synchronous meet-up we’ll get to know each other and decide what we would like to do together. People who have done readers theater before can share their experiences, and we can decide what kinds of plays we want to read together for MYFest24, and we can also brainstorm some plays we might want to write together. And, of course, we’ll read a play. Or two!

This will be a continuous lowkey way to capture the beautiful quotes, concepts and other ephemera we come across. You can share your favourite quotes of all time, or just drop in something you’ve seen on the day. It will be a spot to recharge and be inspired by amazing things others have found. At the end of MYFest, we could collectively create something from what we’ve discovered.

Voice & Silence Framework: Session 1

Tanja Murphy-Ilibasic, Theresa Destrebecq
Tue 11 Jun 2024
13:00pm UTC–14:30pm UTC Your time: JavaScript Disabled
For this session, we will be using a Voice & Silence framework to explore how we ourselves, or those we educate or support, use Voice or Silence. This framework is a four-quadrant model which distinguishes between productive und unproductive forms of Voice and Silence. It originated from the work of Amy C. Edmondson and Tijs Besieux, with the intention of helping foster high-quality conversations. Whether in a social, traditional work or educational environment, we all share the challenges of providing the best possible balance of equal voice, diversity of thought, reflection and critical information. This framework can offer essential insights into how inclusive our meetings, training or exchanges are and why.
