• Publicise the field trip
  • Select times that suit the largest number of participants (e.g. select from after hours for full-time workers, daytime for retirees or parents with small children).
  • Field trips can run from several hours to full days to allow the greatest number of participants to attend (depending on the time participants can spare; distance to be traveled; availability of expertise and/or case studies).
  • Advertise the agenda and times of key presentations in appropriate place, e.g. local media; posters at local stores and libraries. This will allow participants to attend for shorter periods if necessary, and will allow them to choose sessions of interest.
  • Ensure adequate staff on site to provide assistance (e.g. give directions; be available for first-aid; organise food and drink (catering, set-up and clean away), etcetera.
  • Create and display signs that publicise the location of field trip through attachment of maps/directions with a pre-posted agenda.
  • Ensure all publicity (signs, media releases, brochures) provide directions from major routes near the site.
  • Allow time for participants to approach experts for one-to- one discussions.
  • Provide printed public information materials during the field trip for interested participants.
  • Appoint staff to act as note takers during the discussions.
  • Provide feedback forms/survey/response sheets to facilitate public input.
  • Pay attention to duty of care/safety issues. If site is difficult to access or contains elements of risk, make necessary preparations to avoid accidents with an emphasis on participants with disabilities.
  • Organise catering if appropriate
  • Ensure toilets are available

The Bohm Dialogue, especially Collective Reflection has significance for me in terms of artistic critique and dialogue.

If one wanted to connect this to Jungian thought I'd relate to that.
