We start to collect ideas for the CONTENT part of the conference ;)
We plan to have three tracks (now more detailed):
This first AIN conference in Germany offers three main topics
from the 3rd until the 5th of October:
THE ART OF LEADERSHIP
Getting insights into train the trainer programs, leadership development programs, cases from education, arts, business and health using Applied Improvisation.
THE ART OF SCIENCE
Lectures and workshops from interdisciplinary researchers and their perspectives on Applied Improvisation or connected fields e.g. resilience, effectuation, brain and art based research.
THE ART OF A(IN) CULTURE
How to create a resilient culture? What makes a resilient culture special? What are local differences and similarities? Strengths and weaknesses? How can we create a resilient glocal community for future purposes? Let´s start for example with the AIN itself!
There will be a mix of plenaries, presentations, workshops, open spaces, stages and other surprises.
Let us know, what you think, what you would love to share, if there are people you would recomment...

I had an interesting conversation with Paul Z Jackson recently regarding formalizing the way we measure our value in the workplace (specifically trying to create quantifiable results from a more subjective training that we often do).
Do people have interest in exploring this topic further? The idea would be to create a plan of the types of things people should be doing to measure our ROI (if possible). Things like pre-training + post-training surveys on key metrics (productivity, workplace satisfaction, etc). Thoughts / reactions?
I would recommend measuring the impact on resilience - this would make a better fit to the conference topic ;)
Let´s create an Improv KPI: ROR Return on Resilience or an ERROR Emergent Risktaking Return on Resilience.
We should handle this topics more creative than just try to find numbers fitting to efficiancy mindsets ;)
My opinion :)
GREAT TOPIC :-)
Hi I'm a new member of the AIN living and working in Belgium. I work a lot on the field of collective intelligence through the practice of improv theatre. Collective intelligence studies the conditions and formats of the collaboration in living systems hence the transition or our human civilizations. The theories can be read (in french) http://www.thetransitioner.org/Intelligence_Collective_Revolution_I...
When I read the topic of this years conference I immediately want to propose a workshop of that kind.
Then the "Art of Hosting" is also a very nice field of practice where I see a lot of similarities with Improv
great…. and it's wonderful that we seem to have so many fellow AoH practitioners in the AIN! Looking forward to meeting you in Berlin!
Nothing more to say then: YES! I was introduced to AoH some years ago and really liked it. I would love to see a collective intelligence sessions at the conference - so please write down your proposal ;) What I really would love to see is a wide range of leadership formats - from self leadership to stewardship and swarms...;)
Bonjour Martin - Will there be pre-conference workshops, or longer sessions during the conference? It would be great to have longer chunks of time to share some of the work we are all doing. Merci!
Absolutely!! We plan having Pre conference Learning journeys at October 2nd! So the conference will be from 3rd until the 5th!
right now there will be three journey; one on dancing, one on music and one on Berlin as an improvising city! :)
The whole conference will be hostet under the umbrella of open space - it´s about going to and meeting people where you feel it is right! :)
I hope I have the time to be a part of this AIN conference in Berlin.
I'm an entrepreneur and I use applied improv in business. We train mostly leaders, managers and other key players. I think 'Leadership' is a great topic and I would really be looking forward to this conference. It would be great to meet all you people out there.
Have a happy day!
Would be awesome to share your experiences!
There will be some experts also on Effectuation. You know this Entrepreneurship approach?!
Very nice...! :)
Also information walls are pretty awesome. Not just for the events and open space, but a place for people to interact and share. History timeline was awesome and the Communication Board was really helpful (need something, offering something, lost/found etc.) Those were good!
great ideas! :)
One of the things I really appreciated about the SF event was that the organizers gave ample space and time for informal networking and conversations... and spontaneous happenings/games. Longer breaks between sessions, long lunches, having reserved space that did not have scheduled events...
Perhaps even performances? AIN Baltimore had a volunteer performance. It wasn't highly polished, but it was fun. (more a bonding experience than a personal showcase)
