||In this article, I will let you know how Gap Filler creates ways for people to interact with others and their city, using examples of some of the Gap Filler projects I have been involved with over the past few years. I will focus on identifying the creative sociometric interventions that build relationships.

||Creating opportunities for a community to resolve issues that affect it is an exciting and empowering notion. Central to this is a sociometric challenge. This paper describes how a large multi-stakeholder group was facilitated in a decision making process. We present the reasoning behind the use and selection of sociometric criteria and describe the application of sociometry in this facilitated process. A liberating notion is that people can work collaboratively to reach alignment regardless of what their organisational structures and decision making modes are.
