The second TIE meeting and conference took place in Madrid, Spain, January 22-24, 2016 Exploring & Applying Design-Inspired Social Construction
We want to thank the organizing committee headed up by Maria Munoz-Grandes, and the 50 participants who participated in the TIE Meeting in Madrid. Our meeting was an enlivening gathering of many European Associates, and some new members in the Social Constructionist community. We think it was a great opportunity for connection and our conversations unfolded creatively. We now face the challenge of bringing to live some of the great initiatives for TIE’s future that emerged from our meeting. For this we need your collaboration. It is our desire that, next year when we meet again, we will be able to share how our projects are flourishing.

Coordinator - Taos Institute Europe (TIE)
TIE is a part of the Taos Institute, and a forefront network of postmodern researchers and practitioners around the world, doing groundbreaking work within social constructionist and postmodern practices. TIE is a European center of gravity and a mashup of researchers, practitioners and other like minded in Europe, who challenge the known and frozen paradigms of understanding, to build better worlds of tomorrow. TIE work to expand social constructionist dialogues and relational practices - of cutting edge significance, within business, cross sector innovation, economics, collaboration across boundaries, politics, therapy, humanization of global cities, communication, design, IT, learning etc. – supporting the processes by which humans generate purpose, meaning and results together. Our focus is on how social groups and the relational practices within those groups create and sustain beliefs in the real, the rational, and the good.
