We want to hear from you!

As you know, last week we met at Rutgers University in NJ during 4 days to learn and deliberate about “Designing Collaborative Ecosystems”. We had more than 40 participants from different countries and we enjoyed every minute of the conversation.

We’re putting together people’s reflections  while ideas are still fresh. Please, write about what you learned, heard, new ideas or anything that you would like to share with the rest of the community and send it to us.

There are also new presentation files. If you haven’t shared your presentation yet, please also  send it to us.

Reimagining Human Relations in Our Time

Don’t miss the celebration of the 70th Anniversary of the Tavistock Institute! 

TIHR 70 Festival programme – live

We are delighted to launch the website for ‘Reimagining Human Relations in Our Time’, a festival celebrating 70 years of the Tavistock Institute.

At the heart of the festival is the Institute’s archive which over the last two years has been intricately and delicately catalogued at
Wellcome Library. These two things coinciding – our anniversary and the launch of the archive – are a great cause for celebration because the insights of our forebears as they tackled past societal challenges are now available to you. How might we take inspiration from their learning as we grapple with today’s major concerns, such as an environment at tipping point, ageing and social care, displaced people and populations, crises in faith, identity and leadership, and our wellbeing at work?

The festival website is the starting place for you to join us in these questions with access to a rich programme offering opportunities to take part, reflect, dream, debate, consider, listen and observe, and perform.

With its online booking system and easy to view programme you will be able to curate your own festival experience, keep in touch with festival news, and access recordings, reflections, and photographs posted following each event via the festival’s ‘ArchLive’.

We look forward to seeing you in October.
