    Communication & Conflict Resolution Workshop

    As a cooperatively organized community, Spark runs on collaboration and trust which requires healthy communication and a clear process for conflict resolution. There are two identical sessions planned in May to introduce nonviolent communication skills and help those present come up with process to use when issues between members arise. Having a set method for how we move through disagreement and charged situations is critical and overdue. This workshop will introduce shared language and frameworks that will benefit all participants in and beyond their involvement in Spark. Alejandro Melendez-Cooper from the Hispanic Alliance will lead the session at the Provenance Center. He has been leading trainings and facilitating conflict resolution for decades. We anticipate that these sessions might be open and available semi-regularly for the benefit of not just Spark but members of the wider community as well.

    Spark Collaborative Membership

    Spark has focussed its first year getting membership established for individuals to access the shared workstations for projects, classes, meetups, and community collaborations. We are now at a place of development where it feels appropriate to formalize membership for organizations. We are calling this Collaborative Membership because this invites thinking about how we can all work together, not just the entity and Spark, but the group of entities that will become Collaborative Members of Spark. The plan is also underway to support individual Members to start organizations that can become Collaborative Members with revenue-sharing in some way. Stay tuned for an introduction to each Collaborative Members as they join the Spark community.
