Description: The Now What?! global gathering is a twice-yearly event first held in March 2019. The Apr-May 2021 edition is using Sociocracy. We will share learnings about how this works in a pop-up context, including our experience blending synchronous and asynchronous spaces in lieu of live Circle meetings with all members present as a way for people with many other demands on their time to engage in governance together.

Bio: Ben Roberts is a process artist who works in service to systemic transformation, inspired by large group conversation methodologies and the internet’s power to support new possibilities for dialogue, both virtually and in-person. He is the founder and lead convener of the Now What?! global gathering and gift economy.
