Title: Co-creating the financial, social and psychological space for a paradigm shift 

Talk: Hoffice is a pop-up workspace for social entrepreneurs and activists. Its aim is to facilitate the power of the collective as support for individual ventures. Workspaces are set up in individual members homes and a facebook group is used to invite others to join in. A methodology inspired by action research has been developed with the intention of infusing the concept with a spirit of continous development. Hoffice participants experiment with various practices aimed at creating a work environment that supports efficiency, creativity, a healthy balance between work and recovery as well as important new social connections. Attending a hoffice event is always free of cost. Thus social entrepreneurs and activists working for a paradigm change gain access to a vibrant and focus inducing workplace, expanding their networks while they cut down on the money spend on having access to some kind of workspace
