Cultivating Intimacy & Setting Boundaries
A 'Playshop' is a playful workshop. Come and dare find out about your personal ability to trust!

When someone reserves your room on Airbnb, how do you know if you want to host them? Would you let just anyone borrow your car? How do you know when you want to say “yes” and when you want to say “no”? Which one feels harder to say? We can only know and trust other as far as we know and trust ourselves. Come play with the OuiShare community, exploring personal and interpersonal trust and communication, the very basis for sharing.

Developing Objects Made for Sharing


Define “Made for Sharing”
Identify objects that could be “Made for Sharing”
Share inputs to what needs to be true for “Made for Sharing” to be an acknowledged term


There are already many objects in cities, which are designed to be shared among many users. Everything public is naturally shared but new offerings, using a “private operating model” has also entered the public space. Bike and car sharing services are two well known examples.

Most recently, AirBnB has started investigating the potential for “designed for sharing” spaces so that homes could be directly designed with this goal of “sharing” or renting in mind.

Traditionally sharing, as an example, was setting up at box for sharing the books that you are finished with yourself, and maybe even the books that you do not really want to keep J So – to be blunt, sharing in the “old school” tradition was sharing the objects that you, for some reason, did not care about anymore.

Specific criteria need to be met in order to allow a high intensity of use. Most importantly, such objects need to be built to last. 

However, our hypothesis is that “Made for Sharing” objects can have more ambitious goals than only a high intensity of use. Such objects can have the potential to trigger social interactions and contribute to activating the public space. This requires other specifications than merely being built to last: made for sharing objects need also to be social objects and need to have a design that can guarantee a good user experience.

In this workshop, we would like to challenge this idea of “Made for Sharing” objects and start a conversation about their characteristics.

We will use the concrete case of “OurHub” a social object designed with those questions in mind - to challenge the idea of “made for sharing” products. The participants will use this example as a starting point to discuss the concept of "made for sharing” and come up with ideas of new objects “made for sharing” within different categories: Play, Live, Work and Learn. Finally, the participants discuss what needs to be true for the term to become a more acknowledge term.

Go Hack Yourself
  1. This workshop requires an excellent physical condition. For instance, can you run 10km or do 30 pushups in a row without much effort? Not that we will do this, but someone in a good physical shape shouldn't see these numbers as a challenge.
  2. You arrive on time. Past this time you will find closed doors you will not have the opportunity to participate
  3. You feel open to challenge yourself and question your belief system
  4. You agree to follow Jean-François Noubel’s lead during the workshop
  5. You speak English fluently so you can really understand and contribute
  6. You come with a super creative and pioneering mind

You want ecology in the world... do you have an inner ecology? You want to build new realities... can you do it with the conventional language we use today? You want social harmony... can current social codes do the job? You want a humanity in which we share (OuiShare) resources and knowledge... but you still use the scarce money and operate in the market economy, don't you? You want peace with all living beings... can you accomplish it with the food you eat?
 Language, social codes, food, money, economy, technology... we can call them the "We in the I", the collective that perpetuates itself through the individual self. Can we build the next society if we don't hack this social DNA that lives inside the self? Certainly not.


This 3 hours workshop will take us in an inner challenging journey. We will explore how we can evolve the We in the I, and the impact it has in our actions and everyday life. Come for intensive body plays based on martial arts. We will deal with tough provoking questions and challenging exercises. Jean-François Noubel will drive it in a directive way, like a sports coach, therefore you must feel comfortable with this.

How can we create a more successful working culture through collaborative leadership?

Let's face it: collaboration is a pretty term but in practice, we all know that it can be a real pain.

We've all had the experience of working in a group of egos where internal competition gets in the way and soaks up the energy of the team. However, if you've been lucky enough, you've also had the fortunate experience of great team collaboration, where each team member becomes a leader and the colleagues fill you up with energy.

In this session we'll explore and reflect on the fundamental mind-set of collaborative leadership while practicing how to integrate it in our working culture and personal life.

We Share Loss: Community vs. Isolation in the Grieving Process
By Loss we mean the death of a loved one: someone or something important to you.In addition to being a person who passed away, a “loved one” might have been an animal companion, a thing (like a relationship, a job, or your health), or even something that only ever existed as a dream (for example, discovering that you’re infertile when you’ve always imagined you’d birth children naturally is an example of this kind of loss.)

Grieving a major loss, and coping with normal life after a great loss, often has an isolating effect. Sometimes we have the sense that no one can share what we are feeling. Sometimes we fear that to reveal our feelings is to spread negativity and "bring other people down." Sometimes we feel that the acceptable time for grieving has passed; that experiencing grief months or years after the loss is socially unacceptable. Sometimes we feel shame about what our particular style of grief looks like. There are many reasons for isolation.

Yet increasingly we are seeing interest around reclaiming longstanding rituals or creating new community structures to help us cope with loss.

In this conversation we'll explore our experiences of isolation vs. experiences of community within the grieving process. We hope that people will leave this circle empowered to acknowledge death and loss explicitly, in many arenas of "regular life" where it is currently taboo. 

Ultimately we hope that more open attitudes to grieving, loss and death in our society can lead to everyone leading a more peaceful, grounded life.

What are you truly fed up with? A transformational playshop
Let’s play seriously and responsibly during this playshop that will look into what you are fed up with in society and education through the media of social presencing theater.

The aim of the playshop is to be creative and transformational. Together, we consider and physically experience current societal and educational « blocks ». We also embody how to respond to this current climate from a deep place that connects us to the emerging future rather than reacting against the pattern of the past.
It is an invite to an evolution from the place where the significant can be seen.Who is in ?

Conflicts and Collaboration

A storytelling workshop on tensions and emotions in self-organized work.


From school on we learn that conflict is bad. We are trained to avoid difficult conversations. In organizational life this translates into a pervasive culture of not telling each other what we really think. The problem is that collaborative and creative work depends on perspectives smashing into each other. How can we get comfortable with real conflicts and overcome “organizational defensiveness” (Chris Argyris)? In this workshop we will jointly elicit candid stories of enthusiasm, anxiety, trust and intimidation. A touching learning journey.

Hack & Dance
Micro-Hackathon and Keynote

  We will work together to hack and create new  instruments for the collaborative economy in the developing world. The instruments will be build from trash and residuals from first world countries.

This micro-hackathon designed by UNAM designer and experience curator Liliana Savage, who will create a sensorial experience that will push all participants to be creators and to think how we can innovate from  the first world garbage that we dump into third world countries. While we hack away on our instruments, participants will listen and engage in discussions with our Keynote speaker Alexis Crawshaw,  a composer and  doctoral researcher in intersensorial composition using infrasounds.

Music and Dance Fest

We will do a music festival where we will use the instruments we build to manifest future of collaborative economy in developing world.  Participants are free to dance and use their body to express themselves as well.

Our hope is that the music, dance and micro hackathon will inspire love for the developing world, and inspire participants to produce useful technology that involves more people in the collaborative economy.

Improvised Cooking for a Shared Meal

**Cooking will happen in the cooking station just NEXT to the Studio from 6-8pm. From 8pm, we will be eating together in the Studio**

Recipes for Cooking without Recipes
 is a learning format focused on improvising dishes with leftovers. It is a funky culinary experience that is less about following preconceived instructions but more on listening to your inspiration in the moment. To do so means to cultivate one’s innate abilities to create with ingredients immediately on hand, to learn by cooking, get inspired by limits and to peacefully inhabit a certain level of uncertainty. In the absence of a chronology to follow, this workshop builds on awakening and continuously practicing corporeal technologies that could usher a direct link between organic impulse (hunger) and the emergence of action and empowerment (creativity).

Brought to you by: Nowhere Kitchen 

and with ingredients from Freegan Pony, the first European association and collaborative freegan kitchen, which is paving the way to expose the food industry and contribute reducing its amount of food waste.

The ingredients are vegetables and fruits sourced from Rungis market and that would otherwise have been discarded. In Paris, settled in Porte de la Villette for the past 6 months, the kitchen has offered a new menu each day composed by different chefs and volunteers to make sure more and more vegetables and fruits are saved from ours dustbins.
