This is an unconference, so if we all agree to spend the day making mudpies because that is what we want to do, then we will do that! To make sure people have places to sit and things to eat, we have come up with a program for the day. All is negotiable.

HOW IT WORKS
The unconference works on five guiding principles and one law. Check out the Wikipedia entry for Open Space Technology Guiding Principles and One Law for more details. They are:
- Whoever comes is the right people
- Whenever it starts is the right time
- Wherever it happens is the right place.
- Whatever happens is the only thing that could have .
- When it’s over, it’s over.
Law of Two Feet: If at any time during our time together you find yourself in any situation where you are neither learning nor contributing, use your two feet, go someplace else.
HOW WE WILL DECIDE SESSION TOPICS
1.If you have a topic you would like to facilitate or would like a topic discussed you come to the front and have up to 30 seconds to summarise what the topic involves. When you facilitate a session, you just need to keep conversation going, not to contribute all the content. 2. You then write your session title and name on one of the bits of butcher’s paper for the timeslot you would like. There are five timeslots. 3. Keep going until all sessions are filled. 4. During, and at the end, we should all look for overlaps and combinations for topics. 5. Every participant will be able to choose up to 5 topics comes up to the butcher’s paper and puts a mark beside the topics that they want to attend 6. When all have voted then the group decides how many sessions they want to run at once in any timeslot. 7. Each timeslot will have a volunteer timekeeper who will make sure that the room is available for the next session. Sessions can continue for longer if people find another spot.
