Citizens at the Centre: A journey with my Tamarack Institute colleagues

Last month I joined Tamarack's Liz Weaver and Sylvia Cheuy on a cross-country tour to deliver Citizens at the Centre - a travelling workshop on how to engage ordinary citizens in the community change process.

What was it all…

A SALTY Exercise in Kerala

Yesterday I conducted my first SALTY activity. Well, technically I didn't conduct it because I don't have the language skills. I shared the idea with my field team member Krishna and she conducted the session. My colleague Balaram and I brainstormed to design the session.

Having just completed my SALT facilitator training, this was a momentous occasion for me.…

Crossing thresholds together

“What accent do you have? You're not from around here.”  Even in a country that values social equality, there are historically rank differences between urban citizens from the large cities and the administrative centres on one hand, and residents from remote rural areas on the other hand.  In the 80s of the last century, candidates from rural areas (speaking with a distinct accent) were not accepted for trainee positions at a large bank. …

Une Leçon de SALT

En ce froid dimanche soir, nous préparons les funérailles de papa prévues pour le mercredi suivant. Nous voilà, ma belle-mère, ma soeur avec son mari, mon épouse et moi réunis autour du diacre Jos dans le bureau de la paroisse Saint-Michel à Keerbergen.  Je n'avais pas participé à la préparation d’une cérémonie catholique depuis plus de vingt ans. J’avais lu les directives pour préparer les obsèques et, franchement, j’étais un peu inquiet car je me demandais…

A SALT Lesson

There we were, my stepmother, my sister with  her husband, me and my wife, gathered around Jos the deacon in the  Saint Michael’s parish office in Keerbergen.
