Making MIXs
A new, simpler way to Make MIXs!
What Is A MIX?
A maximum of 8 people who do an activity
or go to an event, together.

From going to see Barcelona play Paris at the stadium, to doing a drawing activity at a local cafe, the MIX Theme is up to the imagination.

Partcipants are either a: Native, Local or Traveler. There can't be more than 4 people from any one of those three catagories.
Located In A Public Space
Parks, cultural/social centers, concert halls, sports stadiums, hostels, colleges/universities, etc.
Organized by Moderators (Mods)

Why Couchsurfing?
To build MIX Movement's community as quickly as possible, it's important we connect with like-minded people, first! Couchsurfers are *generally* open minded people who are looking for events and multicultural activities to do.
How To Moderator The "Intro-X"
1. After everyone has arrived, just tell them "Let's do the Intro-X! It's a simple ice-breaker, I'll start, OK?!"
2. Say your name, and say thank you to everyone for coming. You don't have to explain MIX Movement, no problem! Just tell people why you like the theme of this MIX "I love photography, I've been doing it fo X amount of years and I feel like it's a great way to get to know a new city!" What about you!

Then go around the group and ask the people what they like about the day's event or activity. THEN

Come prepared with at least 2 questions that connect the participants with a previous feeling while doing a similar activity or going to a similar event.

For example:
What's your earliest childhood memory of **********
When's the last time you saw a ******* which moved you?

This is where the participants can build a connection with each other on a much deeper level. People are able to connect based off of previous experiences. It's OK to ask everyone the same question, just try it!
How To "Close The MIX"
"Thank you everyone for coming to my MIX! It's so important to connect cultures, and our hobbies are the best way to do that! So, please stay connected with the MIX Movement, maybe even organize your own MIX! I will leave a comment on Couchsurfing, Facbeook & MeetUP with a link today's group photo. There, you can find more info about MIX Movement!"
