THE POLARISATION GAME: LEARNING TO NAVIGATE DISAGREEMENT
Workshop by Alexander Beiner
There are some topics it's easier not to talk about. Vaccines, meat, and gender. Conspiracies, climate change, and politics. The list of issues that drive polarisation in communities and start arguments between friends seems to grow every year.
But it doesn't have to. What if, instead of arguing, we could find a way to embrace disagreement so that we can explore these topics together in a way that takes us somewhere new and exciting? The good news is that you can.
In this interactive session by Alexander Beiner, we'll be learning simple techniques and practices that help you to have difficult conversations. Alexander facilitates retreats and co-founded Rebel Wisdom, an alternative media platform that explored the most explosive culture war topics. He has worked with hundreds of people from around the world to find new ways to disagree and have fun in the process.
In this session, you’ll see how, when we really get to the deeper levels of our beliefs, and connect to one another as human beings, amazing things can happen. With live facilitated conversations and easy to learn techniques, this is the best place at Boom to explore a new kind of conversation around hot topics.
