Beginning in the 70’s Harry Goolishian and Harlene Anderson invited a small group of professionals to Galveston for a week to think and work together around emerging collaborative-dialogic ideas and practices.

These gatherings evolved into the International Summer Institute: a space for practitioners, researchers, scholars, and students to learn and share ideas and practices. 

Over the last twenty years the ISI convened in Mexico—as a bilingual event hosted by Harlene Anderson and Grupo Campos Eliseos colleagues–and grew in size and relevance within the international collaborative-dialogic community.
