Equinox Unconference

22nd September 2020


the time the Earth day is in equaly devided between night and day.

Fall Equinox summons us. We synchronize at this significant point in time to celebrate our place in life amidst the natural forces which move the outer world as much as the inner. Eternally we search for balance and embrace paradox to leverage the potential of polarity. As light casts a shadow, so order breeds chaos. As the sun abandons us, the night pulls us inward. And, once more, the yin meets the yang.


a participant-driven gathering to Learn, Teach and Share

Unconferences are loosely structured and coordinated by participants who abide by the law of two feet - if your not recieving value, please find a space where you are or create some value for others! Our themes are open in ethos and non prescribed, anyone can get involved in ways of their own choosing. This is a participatory meeting of hands, heads and hearts in open space to build collective capacity and common potential.

With that said, we are practicing self organisation where no-one and everyone is a facillitator. Please join us this Equinox in a game of artful participation!



Share an experience of open space with a diverse and interesting group who are co-creating and organising themselves around a shared collection of narratives.

Feel free to interact during sessions and contribute to each others journey by sharing stories and ideas together, or simply jump in and organise your own session. All kinds of contribution are welcome.



Want to experience what a self-organising participatory space feels like? Gather around the digital bonfire with us as an attendee, hopefully the discussion will warm you up enough participate. Sessions are available here.



Grab a spade and come community gardening - your help is most welcome! Volunteering to share your intentions and attention with us in any way is appreciated and we've thought of a variety of ways that people can contribute. In that spirit, please drop in to the Discord channel if your up for filling a few holes with us!

Participate artfully

Be present. Be kind. Be whatever feels right.

Space explorer, facilitator or a fly on the wall? What other hats do you see yourself wearing? There is only one thing that is set:

we share this space together and together make the experience happen!


Signals get easily muddled in digital space, it's not as easy to sync and follow the non-verbal cues. So to keep the signals clear and prune unnecessary or conversation, there is a hat for space keeper. This someone might keep track of time, help everyone feel welcome and "pop the stack" when discussion gets too granular or off course. We all share this role in the open space of the unconference!


2020 Greeting of the year: "Can you hear me?". Tech will be tech, so if your mic is not working or you see other people struggling please help each other. No luck? Drop a line in the #firstaid channel so that the tech fairies of the community can step up and try to help you.
