To do this I’ve constructed or woven the filaments into several highly subjective pieces of word-filigree 4, using some of the threads of recorded text gathered from each individual workshop-discussion. A mass of text came to me after the Symposium in the form of notes scribed during discussion, delegate reflections on post-its, or Guest Contributors’ summary notes made on flipcharts during the sessions. I have directly used only a fraction, but it has all informed the resulting reflections presented here. Many best wishes, Sarah Spanton
