About Joy At Large
- Our Story
Joy At Large finds motivation from Alvin Toffler's insight:
'The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.'
We believe that the craft of facilitation by design is key to 21st-century literacy. It is our mission to exemplify this craft and help others to do so, with joy.
Joy At Large was founded in 2016 as a commitment to encourage and facilitate the mastery of 21st-century literacy, for ourselves and others.
'At Large' is an expression which means 'to escape, to be at liberty'. It also means 'to be as a whole', referring to a body of knowledge or people. We enjoy its double entendre: to experience freedom from mainstream traditions in the way we think and work by harnessing the collaborative intelligence and spirit of the group, whether this be your team, organisation, or community.
Facilitation allows us to take our experiences, see them in different slices, and expand our insights thus the way we make critical decisions in a world accelerating in uncertainty and complexities.
