About the event
Adaptive Culture Tending is a tool designed by Tree of Change to help us structure our large-scale projects, agendas, workflows, and research. It integrates intersectional participatory action research, popular education and peer-based praxis, and appreciative inquiry into a looping process that can be used at small and large scales to disrupt cycles of binary or biased thinking and action. We’ll share the origins of Adaptive Culture Tending, outline how it flows, demonstrate applications of it in our work, and make space for participants to adapt the process to their own projects.
