    Terrific piece! I’ve written about ‘deliberative confidence’ which is exactly what your ‘deliberative hospitality’ attempts to generate in participants and the public.

    we, at Imagine Greater Tucson, practice deliberative hospitality with all of the above elements and we add a “reciprocity gift”, given at the end of our community conversations to participants. It’s a way of recogizing and appreciating the time and effort they have given to us by joining a public conversation. In our case, it’s a wrist bracelet with the IGT website on it, but it amazes me how that simple act of giving often a) surprises the participants and b) elicits a smile, or laugh and they leave the room with another reason to stay engaged with us and with each other.
