Creating Participatory Events

"An event can made participatory through an well-defined sequence of steps. First, a vision must be cast, identifying event goals and outcomes that will tap the passion and needs of participants and draw them into participation. This is followed by an iterative outreach process, speaking to prospective participants, communicating the event vision and evolving it based on their feedback.  Through the outreach process, one also identifies facilitators in the group: participants with an inclination towards sharing knowledge and supporting their peers."
