When writing stories in the text laboratory I found that I had put a lot of emphasis on the way the 0+Ball was produced. Having been profoundly surprised by what happened at the GHP, I wanted to consciously orchestrate a similar effect, with the aim of contributing to the fight against HIV and AIDS. Orchestrating processes for change requires attention to detail from the very beginning because any step taken includes and excludes certain possibilities for subsequent steps. Below I will discuss what had happened beforehand in three sections that in my experience are characteristic of any production: 'going from nothing to something', 'deciding to do it' and 'producing the event'.
