The Shuttleworth Foundation will participate in a Book Sprint reflecting on ten years of giving.
“Our thinking about how change happens has been influenced by the journeys Fellows take, and partnering with them for many years,” said Helen Turvey, CEO of The Shuttleworth Foundation.
“We are excited, to pause and extract the learnings and discoveries we have made along the way.”
The Shuttleworth Foundation is a small social investor that provides funding to dynamic leaders who are at the forefront of social change. We look for social innovators who are helping to change the world for the better and could benefit from a social investment model with a difference.
Participating in the Sprint will be a mix of foundation staff, and a cross-section of fellows.
Included in this group will be Adam Hyde, Founder of Book Sprints, Co-Founder and Technology Lead at Collaborative Knowledge Foundation, as well as his creation: the open source, browser based books workflow production system called Editoria. Book Sprints now uses Editoria to enable and support collaborative authoring and editing required to produce books within this ultra rapid timeframe.
Book Sprints’ CEO Barbara Rühling, who is an active member of the Editoria Community, will facilitate the Sprint, which takes place in March at Ridge Farm near Dorking, UK. Ridge Farm has a history as a studio where artists such as Queen, Pearl Jam, and Oasis recorded. May the creative collaborative energy make this Book Sprint a fun and productive one!
