Theresa Destrebecq will be facilitating a book circle on the book Imagination: A Manifesto by Ruha Benjamin. Book circles have maximum 18 participants, and we try to build community by maintaining the same set of people over the entire period. So if you are planning on being part of this circle please register separately here

What is a book circle?
A book circle is an intersection of learning and community building — it’s collaborative and transformational learning rolled into one. It’s human connection through books.

Participating in a book circle allows participants to ​engage in ongoing generative conversations with peers; step back from the day to day to see the bigger picture, challenge their assumptions, re-envision how they work and live, learn with and from one another, create deeper human connections, and so much more.

The book acts as the platform and the subject-matter expert, and the facilitator as the bridge between consuming and creating, by way of connected learning. Unlike traditional learning and development structures, the goal is not to teach or deliver content, but to create space for wisdom to emerge from within the individuals and the group.

Book circle meeting dates are the following Mondays:

  • June 10th from 5-6:30pm Cairo time (2-3:30pm GMT, 10-11:30am UTC)
  • June 1st, from 5-6-:30pm Cairo time
  • July 8th, from 5-6:30pm Cairo time
  • July 15th from 5-6pm Cairo time (a shorter session)
  • July 29th from 5-6:30pm Cairo time
Please register before June 7th.
