This is the fourth of a series of 6 follow-up events of the Social Tools 2018 conference. It is nevertheless open to anyone attending the festival. No prior knowledge or attendance of the 2018 conference is required!

Since new practices cannot be established during a weekend workshop we decided to host 6 training sessions. The “program” for these 6 sessions is based on the “12 Patterns of Decentralized Organizing” as outlined by Nat and Rich in their workshop.

For each of the peer learning session, we will focus on one pair of those 12 patters. We will exchange experiences and practices, do some exercises and deepen our understanding of the patterns. We will pull in other resources and discussions, for example from Sociocracy 3.0 or Cultural Democracy. A session might conclude with a Case Clinic if time allows.

Session 4 will focus on Patterns 3+4: “Distribute care labour” and “Collectively agree on norms and boundaries.” In the session, we will discuss how to make invisible work more visible, consider an interesting model of stewardship within a decentralised organisation and assume that common sense doesn’t exist.

We try to extend this topic to different methods of contribution tracking and compensation, as this is something many decentralized organizations struggle with. If all the work is to be made visible, how to compensate the variety of tasks and how to make sure everyone’s effort is acknowledged properly?

One extremely interesting and extensive example we might take a closer look at is by Guerilla Translators, a P2P translators collective/co-op in Spain:

This event is organised in collaboration with Pixelache Festival 2019: Breaking the Fifth Wall! and space is generously provided by “Kehä Nolla” – our office became slightly too small for hosting the event.
