by on July 3, 2012

Here’s a breakdown of activities going on tomorrow in Austin, TX in solidarity with #NATGAT!
p.s. bring sun protection and a water container, it could get pretty gnarly our there.

The Texas Gathering will use the same Visioning Process as the National Gathering. Once completed the two documents will be merged after the 4th.

Steps:

1. Break into groups of 3 and discuss your vision for a new democracy. (15 min.)

2. Choose 1 scribe out of the group of 3 to compile the list of your top visions and grievances on a sheet of paper. There is no limit to the type or number of items you can include (10 min.)

3. 3 groups of 3 will come together into a group of 9, once in that group the 3 scribes from the groups of 3 will compile the lists and then check back with the rest of the group of 9 to make sure the new compiled list sounds correct. (20 min.)

4. 1 scribe from the group of 9 will come together with scribes from the other groups of 9 and compile the new list for the group of 45. (10 min.)

5. The scribes from the group of 9 will then address the group of 45 to make sure the new compilation of the list is accurate and everyone is satisfied with the new list. (20 min.)

6. 1 scribe from the group of 45 will come together with scribes from the other groups of 45 and compile the new list for the group of 225. (10 min.)

7. The scribes from the group of 45 will then address the group of 225 to make sure the new compilation of the list is accurate and everyone is satisfied with the new list. (20 min.)

8. Repeat as necessary in larger groupings.

9. Late comers will wait till at least 9 people have arrived to form their own group of 9 and compile a new list. We will continue to collect these throughout the day.

10. Once everyone has had a chance to compile their list we have one final review to check to make sure the document is reflecting the collective visions of the Texas Gathering. (30 min.)

Initial Visioning Process: ≈1 hr. 45 min. for 225 people

Final Visioning Compilation: 30 min.

There is also a pdf document below detailing the above process in a larger scope. Good luck getting it to open though, seems there are way to many people trying to access it right now.

Food Not Bombs is setting up an impromptu canned food donation station, so if you have a can to spare, bring it for the poor.

Always in Solidarity,
