14th and 15th April 2016 Third place and cooperation at work
Third place, co-working, … How does cooperation develop in these new collective spaces ? Does third place create new ways of cooperating and organising work within very small enterprises and microentreprises?
How can co-operative entrepreneurship connect with these new workplaces?
Does third place exist because of the need of co-workers? Or is third place helping them to become entrepreneurs by providing a work space ?
What does this happy brainstorming tell us about working, and sharing ideas in the same work environment ?
Do we need a specific space to be able to cooperate ? Does a virtual third place exist?
With all these questions, and those you will bring up, we wish to produce a common, shared and shareable knowledge.
About the workshop at the Manufacture Coopérative (nicknamed Manucoop)
These kinds of workshops are key moments to put together and build collectively a specific knowledge. The goal of this workshop is to gather people who wish to share their experiences and that everyone can make the most of their help and guidance.
This workshop’s challenge is to create learning material and applications out of everyone’s experience, exchanges and “mind-fertilization”. These material and applications have to be diversified: technical datasheets, testimonies and statements, drawings and diagrams, also audio and video sequences. These creations will sustain and nurture the networks of different work-based collectives, who act for a social transformation.
All this learning material will be available online under a Creative Commons licence.
Join us if you would like to share your experience and knowledge about these topics.
We would like to hear from you :
like-minded entrepreneurs and co-workers;
coordinators of third places;
entrepreneurial cooperatives who are developing a third place;
and also university researchers working on those subjects;
Imagination Fertile teams will host the workshop at La Serre, Toulouse, France
Address: 27 bis allées Maurice Sarraut, 31300 Toulouse
Opening at 02 : 00 pm on 14th of April 2016
Closing at 04 : 00 pm on 15th of April 2016

I just replaced the Sand box entry in the menu by BloG, to point to this page. The Sandbox was empty so I took the liberty.
This could be a blog here. To keep trace of reflections, ideas, discussions, whatever. Just top new comments so they appear above the precedent ones.
