What's Happening DMC?

Now we have familiarized ourselves with the Camberwell Playground, we can also start to consider meeting in other spaces & locations. So please think about other locations to call meet-ups, they do not always have to be in UAL, we can also try virtual meet ups?

DMC Roadmap – Timeline Nov 18 – March 19

Nov 2018 is the month of DMC play & experimentation getting to know each other & creating & defining new DMC communities of interest:

Those who came along this week managed to propose three new interest groups/clusters and DMC facilitators have arranged kick off meetings, please sign up and join in or just find out more about the topics being discussed.
Remember, remember from November its all about starting fresh:

  • internal reflection
  • making time to understand what the DMC is
  • how we can work together in groups?
  • what our shared interests & values are? 
  • DMC relationship to our own personal practice & values

What to start a meet up?
