*A Creative, Contemplative Space at the 2013 iConference*

A warm invitation is extended to everyone planning to attend the
forthcoming iConference to make use of a unique space on offer during the

A room has been allocated for use throughout the conference as a quiet,
contemplative alternative to the usual high-energy conference conversations
and activities. In addition to offering unstructured meditation and 'time
to think', at various intervals throughout the conference, creative and
contemplative activities such as periods of silent sitting meditation and
life writing activities will also be offered in the room. A daily schedule
of activities on offer will be posted outside the door.

In the lead up to this event, conference participants are invited to share
ideas to put into practice in that contemplative space by contacting
Theresa Anderson ([log in to unmask]). We are particularly eager
to hear from people interested in assisting with guided meditation or with
leading a specific creative or contemplative activity at the conference.

Room Location: Red Oak, Worthington Renaissance Hotel, Fort Worth, Texas
Time: Tuesday (12 Feb) to Friday (15 Feb) from 8:30am - 5:30pm daily

Those interested in learning more about this space or about creative and
contemplative practices may also wish to take part in the scheduled
alternative event which will be making direct use of this space:
*Plan Play Pressure Pause: Engaging Creative Information Practices* (#AE5)
takes place in Pecos 1, Wednesday (13 February): 3:30pm - 5:00pm
