Communities of Practice entity pages are used to profile translocal constellations of potentially-transformative activity focused on one field of practice.

These entities can be nested, in that by identifying a Parent Community of Practice, then Sibling and Offspring, will be automatically associated and accessible.

(These pages are generated from the Relations established from within Person or Initiative pages. Also, they can be established by identifying a non-existing Community of Practice as a Parent. If existing, the link will be blue, if not yet existing, the link is red, and invites the page curator to create the page in question. )

The entity structure below is very similar to the Community of Place, the same for all three types, with one exception: Communities of Practice are where Patterns are curated.

The Main section contains:

  • a few required fields, such as a brief description, parent/sibling/offspring and page curator(s);
  • a summary of key relations are provided here;
  • optionally, one has the ability to display relevant images, give a full name, and longer description;

Other tabs contain:

  • Patterns being curated;
  • narratives about this entity,
  • and essence entries for this Community of Practice from any RKC participant.

These pages interact in generative ways with Entity pages--they can be referenced from an Entity page, if existing, the link will be blue, if new, the link is red, and invites the page curator to create the page in question.
