At Rosieland we're working towards creating a free and open source community building curriculum.
Our first task is to co-create text based content around foundational concepts of community building.
To do this we are going to host 3 collaborative workshops where we hope to map and write down what we all think could or should be included within the first 3 core areas of the curriculum.
You can participate by attending live and online, or by contributing to the async forum posts (linked below):
How to talk about community building - what does community building actually mean and how can we get better at talking about what we do?
What are communities?
What types of communities exist?
What are the limitations of communities?
Who should we contribute to communities?
How do we think about shaping and designing them?
How communities are changing?
Types of community models
