To make this large of an event inviting and accessible to all, we need 250 volunteers to assume the roles of table hosts. A table host will be willing to coordinate the interaction at a single table of eight people. Hosts will guide dialogue and story-telling at their tables using the tools and processes with which they have been provided and made familiar.
Don't be intimidated! We have designed fun and simple processes for helping strangers connect and tell stories.
For more information and instructions, listen to a fifteen minute recorded above.
If you have further questions, contact Jud Hendrix (email@example.com) or Cathy Berkey (firstname.lastname@example.org)
