Intentional Community Living

We will mainly focus on the concept of “intentional community living” during this workshop. Have you ever wondered what community living entails, and are you curious as to why we explicitly include the word intentionality when referring to this topic? Do you already know, but would you still like to ask more questions? Have you had some experiences yourself, and do you now seek a space to constructively criticise this form of co-habitation? We’re open to all of it, and look forward to explore these thoughts further together.
Although we certainly don’t possess a secret universal formula for how to create successful communities, we do have some experience that we would like to share, and certain tools and techniques that have proved very useful to us in the past. Essentially, though, we’re interested in facilitating a discussion through which all our common questions and experiences can be shared on why, the many hows, and the general strengths and challenges of intentional community living.
