Art of Hosting at The Living Well Programme

In early June, some folks who are living and working in Argyll gathered at the Barmolloch Farm, responding to a call from the Living Well programme board. The aim was to address major issues affecting Scotland’s rural and island communities. The key questions they explored were:


  • How can we work together to meet the wellbeing needs of our communities during these times of rising demands and fewer resources? 
  • How can our shared knowledge and resourcefulness best support the most vulnerable across our rural and island areas? 

Using the World Cafe method from the Art of Hosting, appreciative inquiry, the circle-way method, and various other methods, participants discussed these pressing issues and shared their collective feedback. In collaboration with New Possibilities, a short film was created to showcase the event’s highlights and key findings. Watch the video here.
