AIGA Asheville: Designing Community

Join us for an interactive workshop with researcher, network theorist, storyteller, community organizer and AIGA National Board Member, Hugh Weber. Working from foundations in community organizing, civic psychology, and network theory, Hugh’s work seeks to help individuals and organizations design communities that enhance their work, improve their well-being and expand their possibilities. In this conversation, Hugh will share the framework he’s designed which provides immediate action steps for leveraging networks, story, and human insights to create confidence and courage as we work, play and do good. Creatives, community leaders, entrepreneurs and executives—anyone interested in building community and networks around their work—are welcome to join the conversation!

With clients and partners ranging from Fortune 10 to mom-and-pop bait & tackle shops, Weber uses a variety of emergent research techniques and innovative community building skills as CEO and curator of the Institute of Possibility to reveal the rich stories, vibrant cultures, thriving networks, and infinite possibility that often lays hidden in the communities, organizations and people that we love most.

Weber founded OTA, a for-purpose organization focused on sparking transformation through creative connections and collisions in North Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota. OTA has convened 11 large-scale events, hosted over 150 national thought leaders, commissioned 35 micro-documentaries and a full-length feature, and invested approximately $2 million in the creatives who call the region home.
