A Festival of Change – Social Threefolding
20 September - 24 September
Five Creative Days on Sustainable Social and Organisational Change
Social Threefolding is the recognition that three distinct social spheres operate in all human social organisations. Based on this understanding the coordination of the social life processes are not unitarian or centralised by state or leading elite. Instead, these three self-directed, relatively autonomous spheres vertically and horizontally balance and enhance each other:
- cultural-spiritual life empowers and upholds unassailable freedom, individuality and creativity;
- social life supports, sustains, and promotes equal justice as its highest aspiration, out of an understanding that we are all equal by virtue of our humanity;
- economic life, is balanced by reciprocal interactions between people and people, and people and environment, governed by solidarity with the endeavour to meet human needs and enable individuals to work out of their pre-birth intentions. With social threefolding/social sculpture we can build systems that reflect what it is to be truly human.
We use engaging presentations, deep conversations, and some unusual tools: Storytelling, creative engagement, and board games.
