We welcome all people dedicated to work around transformation, like forms of activism, facilitation and healing. Participants need to be interested in engaging in our participative and experiential format during those three days without any fixed expectations regarding the results, yet clear intentions. We particularly celebrate diversity, and do expect a respective attitude towards everyone who seems to be different. Diverse opinions on politics, religion, and other matters are welcome as long as they align with our principles and values. To help assemble a diverse group, we are running an application process.
We offer three payment options in the spirit of inviting diversity of backgrounds as well as financial and non-financial contributions.
If our funding options make this program inaccessible for you, please indicate this in your application and we try to find a solution together.

*JOIN OUR CO-RESPONSIBILITY GROUP
We are open to everyone who likes to become – or already is – deeper involved in the development, facilitation, organizing, documenting and community building of the Collaboration Incubator to share more responsibility and pay less.
In this case only expenses of the workshop are expected to be covered. At the same time it means that a form of financial co-responsibility is needed, to make the whole thing work in the long run. Financial co-responsibility can be expressed in many creative ways. It’s about taking ownership for our program and community. We are open to make finances, organizational structure, legal ownership, etc. transparent and are happy to evolve all this over time and together.
The co-responsibility group will meet online already about four weeks before any workshop to develop and distribute projects and tasks. People choosing reduced- or full-paying fee can also join this group, if they wish.
