individual versus collective

Collectivities in independent structures often start with great motivation and expectation. Then things can change. How can the members of a collective fulfill their individual needs within a group? And, at the same time – maintain their collective existence? Which is singular within the plural? The Individual and the Collective are mutually reinforcing concepts, but sometimes they seem to be the starting point of conflict. This multi-narrative format experience-sharing meeting will help with new ways to deal with conflict.
