Well, the e-democracy people will keep me busy while I’m in town and I’m glad about it! I’ll get to see Tim Erickson again – we first met at the Rockefeller Estate Pocantico Hills, NY when Demos brought together dialogue / deliberation practitioners and election reform folks. Although I just saw Tim three weeks ago at our “We Are All Actors” workshop, I’m looking forward to seeing him again and to meeting face-to-face (after many e-mails)
I’ll also get to see my friends I worked with on the KERA Arts Alive Project whose company Creation in Common is based in St. Paul. This will be soooo fun! Here’s my schedule so far:
