We worked with SKETCH, St. Stephens, Evangel Hall, The Meeting Place, and West Neighbourhood House. Read what new practices can look like – and the surrounding culture required to test and try new things.
Push & Pull: Why practice and what it could look like?
Five months into our residency at the drop-in, we realized that it was hard for new ideas to take hold when there wasn’t yet a conversation about the values that were most important. So, we took a step back and tried bringing different values to the surface. Which values are complementary and which are contradictory? What might staff practice look like from different value sets? Working with a staff member of the drop-in, we tested multiple practices. See what those practices looked like – and the questions they left us asking. Join the dialogue.

Next, we brought to life these 27 ideas to see if there was appetite for taking forward.
