IAF Paris is now IAF FRANCE.

IAF Paris was founded by a group of facilitators in 2013 to promote facilitation and the profession of the facilitator in cooperation of IAF World.  We hold meetings on the first Monday of each month, generally organized around one theme per quarter with contributions from members of IAF Paris, with an occasional IAF FRANCE LAB evening to address significant topics and practices relevant to facilitators in a more experimental and experiential vein.

Pont des Arts, July 2015, “Art and Heart” Learning Expedition



Learning Expedition

In 2015, we organized a Learning Expedition, “Art and Heart”, with workshops on the visual arts, dance, mime, and collaborative art practices that enriched our vision of facilitation.

 Reflection Lab

In September 2016, we organized a “Reflection Lab” that brought us together to think about why we are facilitators, what are the trends that will impact our job, and the future of facilitation over the coming years.
