If you’ve been along to a u.lab Scotland event recently, you’ll be aware that they’ve been hosted by a “holding team” – a self-selecting group of people from across u.lab Scotland with an intention to help grow and sustain u.practices in Scotland. The events have been just one way we’ve been doing this.
For the last couple of months, we’ve been thinking how to open up this group to the many offers of help we’ve had from u.labbers and to increase the number of perspectives on what is happening within u.lab in Scotland.
The first step in this is to open up our meetings. So if you have energy and passion to help “hold the whole” and explore how we can support u.practices and u.lab in Scotland, come along!
These sensing meetings will be designed to accommodate whoever shows up – so whether you want to attend one or all the meetings, the approach is flexible enough. We practice the u.process during the meetings to bring in stories from the field around what’s happening with u.lab, what work is emerging and how we might take this forward. If this sounds like something you’d be interested in contributing to, let us know to expect you by grabbing your space(s) here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/ulab-scotland-sensing-days-various-dates-tickets-34237508309
This is also part of a move by the holding team to embrace more self-organising principles when it comes to identifying and progressing u.lab Scotland “Work” e.g. designing and hosting events, supporting hub hosts, curating the impact of u.lab etc. If you’re interested in finding out more, have a look at our ulabscot holding team google doc.
