About this event

You are warmly invited to a space of heartfelt care, humble learning and mutual curiosity; where people meet people and share their thoughts, ideas and stories.

This is an ongoing improvised exploration of questions like what is essential, who am I now, what is work, health, education, growth, power, and more. As we listen to each other and share spontaneously, we dive ever deeper into the experience of how your story changes my story and vice versa.

Open to all, People Need People sessions are for the everyday person. Here, you will meet people of diverse backgrounds, ages, geographies and ideologies. Whether you are a grandmother, a student, healthcare worker, artist, writer, gardener, scientist, consultant, creative, government official, dad, young, old and in between - our conversations build relationships that build relationships.

The space is held by hosts trained in the People Need People (PNP) and Warm Data Lab processes, developed by Nora Bateson and stewarded by the International Bateson Institute. At impro studio’s People Need People - Being in Conversation, we come together online from across the oceans to share our joy of deep authentic connection with each other.

In anticipation, you can immerse yourself in our recently published Warm Data Anthology edition of Unpsychology Magazine. Download the whole issue here for free:

These 2h sessions are participatory in big groups and small breakout rooms. In each group you will converse with a new set of people guided by a fresh set of topics. Whatever is alive in you in the moment, this space invites you to share that which wants to emerge.

You can drop in once or join as many as you like. Joining instructions will be sent via email upon receiving your booking. Places will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
