Series 3 - Slide8OASES June Breakfast – Connecting ways of knowing

OASES Graduate School Breakfast Series 2015

‘Aha’, the spark of enlightenment in a moment when everything makes sense! Such bridging moments were described by James Joyce as ‘aesthetic arrest’.

New predicaments need new responses. These come from accessing other parts of ourselves and from connecting science with spirituality through art and visual exploration.
Join us to explore the large scale context – climate and the links between ecosystems and social systems. We gather in a place of deep spiritual history where people have been exploring the aesthetic for more than thirty years to create bridges between ways of knowing.

About Jenni

I am interested in working with others to enhance the sustainability of human systems. My practice is to engage with people by drawing on their own ways of knowing and understanding. I orient people toward the “pull” of future intentions, rather than the blind "push" of past habits and "best practice". I encourage people to break out of their cognitive silos, to think laterally and to focus on the whole problem systemically in all its inter-disciplinary complexity. My practice works through the essential processes of innovation – mobilising resources, enrolling peers, engaging allies and building public support. This form of engineering practice is about manoeuvring, dissolving boundaries, always being in action, and recognising that function, congruence and transformation are emergent properties generated through active learning by doing.
