Art of Hosting and Harvesting Meaningful Conversations - Egypt
The Arab Spring, saw the collapse of the Mubarek regime in Egypt. With this, a younger generation, hungry for new forms of governance emerged. A small group of Egyptians met an Art of Hosting practitioner shortly after the first wave of Tahrir Square protests. Through listening to how this approach creates the conditions for diversity to go to work around purpose, they invited the first Art of Hosting and Harvesting Meaningful Conversations training in Egypt. The training was attended by a diverse group of people, mainly Egyptians, and also internationals living in Egypt. This training gave birth to a community of practice and a further three trainings happened over the following years. People took the practice into their work environments, created new social enterprises as well as cultivated new friendships and projects that still exist.
