Three Opening Briefings

In most cases, an Open Space meeting or event will begin with a brief introduction, an opening, by the facilitator. Here are two recordings of these opening briefings and one brilliantly short one you’ll need to read to yourself…

[Chris Corrigan Opening] at the Open Space on Open Space, Vancouver BC, 2001 (mp3)

[Harrison Owen Opening] at a training program recorded in Seattle. (mp3)

[Paul Levy’s One Minute Opening] you have to read this one rather than play it, but get to imagine Paul delivering it from atop a chair pulled to the center of a crowd that never got to sit in the ‘traditional’ opening circle.  There just wasn’t time.  (html)
