Minimum Viable Hologram is an online, facilitated, two hour-long Hologram session. You can use it to help you set up your own long term hologram or you can just try the practice of social holography with your friends once. Social holography is what we call the practice of three triangle members asking about and listening to the details of a fourth person’s physical, social and emotional health. In this online ritual your group uses social holography to come together around your experience as the hologram. It can create intimacy, support, energy, and solidarity.

In this session, one of our facilitators will walk you and your chosen triangle through the basic ideas of the project. They will explain how each part of the process works, and support your triangle with all the steps you will need to have a transformative and supportive conversation.

We think anyone can benefit from this experience. However, we recommend that you first take the time to understand The Hologram as a practice before scheduling an MVH. You can do that by contacting us and requesting a conversation with a practitioner, reading The Hologram book from Pluto Press or taking in some of the media on this website.

How does it work?

Invite three friends who you trust to join you for an online meeting, and sign up for an appointment __.
If you make the appointment, you will be the Hologram, or the person who is getting the attention in the call. The other three are called the Triangle.

When you join the meeting, a facilitator will walk you through the steps of social holography. The meeting will last 2 hours.

Afterwards, you will receive an email inviting your feedback about the process as well as an invitation to think about whether you would like to continue the process.

Cassie Thornton is an artist and activist from the US, currently living in Canada. She refers to herself as a feminist economist, a title that frames her work as that of a social scientist actively preparing for the economics of a future society that produces health and life without the tools that reproduce oppression— like money, police or prisons. She is currently the co-director of the Re-Imagining Value Action Lab in Thunder Bay, an art and social centre at Lakehead University in Ontario, Canada.

Lita Wallis is a youth worker and informal educator based in Gwynedd, Wales. Whether in her work or her personal life, Lita has spent much of her time experimenting with different shapes of supportive relationships (eg. cooperatives, triangles, tripods, flows & webs,) that challenge the ways society teaches us to relate. She joined the Hologram team in March 2020, when she helped to build the first course. Since then her role has been to share the Hologram model, and work out how to make it as useful to as many people as possible.
Til is a feminist community builder and teacher working towards ending the housing crisis. She usually spends her time cooking and feeding friends, growing vegetables and herbs, and pouring kerosine on the raging fires that will burn Capitalism to dust. She is a radical educator and is part of the Unlearning Racism collective, a direct action organisation supporting white people to 'unlearn racism' and build a white culture centred around anti-racism. She took the Hologram course in September 2020 and fully believes in the power and magic of simply listening, and being listened to. She believes this is foundational to loving and respecting ourselves, our communities and the earth we live on.
Stella Lawless aka a Good Enough Witch was born on Halloween raised by kitchen witches and activist weirdos. When they aren’t offering cosmically informed spiritual counsel, they spend most of their time cooking and feeding friends, advocating for economic, environmental and educational justice, exploring ways to cooperate hopefully creating community in all the messiness therein. They also make a lot of art and rituals. They love supporting artists, activists and healers prevent and recover from burnout. They live by Wendell Berry’s words “Be joyful though you have considered all the facts.” They have relatively recently immigrated to the unceded Indigenous lands of the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation known as Montreal and is learning French and how to dress properly in winter agonizingly slowly.
Shawn Chua is based in Singapore, where he is part of the group that co-organizes soft/WALL/studs. He dwells in the uncanny valley and wonders about the personhood of things. With the Hologram, he is finding a different lightness to health and illness, refracted through the prism of another possibility of being with each other in the world—especially one that is not yet here.
