Participants in a World Cafe dialogue I conducted for my Asset-Based Community Development workshop.

I offer workshops on a variety of topics, but two of my favorites are Asset-Based Community Development and Arts-Based Civic Engagement, based on my original curriculum.

Other workshops I have led, also based on my own curriculum, have covered the following topics:

  • from storytelling to action: civic engagement
  • facilitating community dialogue
  • building social capital in your commercial corridor
  • animating business districts with arts & culture
  • economic permaculture
  • cultivating great Third Places/gathering places

Although I have led many workshops on Internet marketing, writing for the web and web site planning, these topics are not among my main interests at this time.
