Virtual Watch Stream for Cynefin Retreat – Innovation in community engagement


August 17, 2022 -  August 20, 2022
Time Zone: Australia/Brisbane
SKU: Cynefin_Retreat_AU2022_virtual Categories: ,


Our upcoming Cynefin Retreat will focus on the theme of community engagement in innovation, the discovery of lived experiences and how that insight is taken into account in design at various levels.

This Retreat is being held in person in Queensland, Australia –  click here for full details of the residential Retreat (including theme and faculty announcements). However, for those who cannot join in person, we are offering a virtual livestream/recording option.

Please note: this virtual option is not a full interactive Virtual Retreat as we have run in previous years. Rather, this is a light-touch opportunity to watch the key plenary sessions, follow the Retreat progress and reflect on the themes and insights in two Zoom meetups.

For tickets in AUD please visit the Eventbrite page.

What's included - Virtual Watchstream


  • Livestreams (and recordings for later viewing) of all key plenary sessions including faculty inputs and group reflections across the 2.5 days of the Retreat
  • Access to SenseMaker collectors to contribute your thoughts and reflections (note: inputs will be included in post-Retreat and Virtual stream reflections only)
  • Virtual participants will not be able to chat/ask questions directly of the Retreat in-person participants.
  • Virtual participants are invited to join two seperate Zoom reflection sessions (with two time options to accommodate different time zones), in which the group and the Cynefin team will reflect together on what we are hearing and what is coming up for us.
  • A dedicated Slack channel for virtual participants to discuss the Retreat sharing as it is emerging.
  • And a post-Retreat follow-up meeting with Dave and Beth in September 2022.
