ONE OF THE JOYS of being connected online is getting to meet offline and chatting about shared values. I got a half hour of face-to-face chat with @larrygmaguire and learned more about his iron skillet, the importance of having a quiet third space in your own car, and what lies ahead for readers of The Artist's Manifesto. It's all part of Congversation 12, an audio series promoting community for the annual Congregation Unconference.
These Congversations have started to evolve as pieces of audio supporting the theme of "community" for #Cong19 in November 2019. There should be 100 different audio submissions on iTunes to complement the 100 written submissions (click to submit your entry) prior to the 22 November opening event of the next unconference in Cong, County Mayo, Ireland.
I took some notes while chatting with Larry Maguire during Congversation 12.
