Liberating Structures are refreshing, easy-to-learn microstructures that enhance relational coordination and trust between people. Usually interactions are organised (meetings, workshops, etc.) either too inhibiting (presentations, status reports, and managed discussions), or too loose and disorganised (open discussions and brainstorms).

Liberating Structures instantly foster lively participation in groups of any size, making it possible to truly include and unleash everyone. Liberating Structures are a disruptive innovation that can replace more controlling or constraining approaches.

Liberating Structures are easy-to-learn effective facilitation techniques for interaction and conversation in small and large groups. You can easily start experimenting with these, without the need of explaining them too much!

Practical info


  • The session concerns a 2-day immersion workshop. The goal of an immersion workshop is to learn and experience Liberating Structures with a real goal. The immersion workshop will be designed by a local design team from Belgium (Frederik, Frederic, Marijke).
  • The workshop is fully interactive and you’ll be fully immersed in Liberating Structures.
  • We also organise a 1 day Liberating Structures Design & Practice Workshop, where you can design your own string of Liberating Structures with a specific purpose in mind and/or come and practice facilitating Liberating Structures in group.
