In this chapter, the authors work through ideas and actions for careful listening, for being listened to and for learning about community relationships, networks and interests. They suggests a linear approach to this process—listen then loiter then learn. In their experience, these beginning elements in everyday community practice often occur simultaneously and are usually cyclical, building an ongoing process for action over time. In this way, listening, loitering and learning are forms of research or gathering information. Rarely is listening in a community context without purpose and the questions of who is listening, how information is shared and how decisions are made about what to do are important. It is also important to listen for work or conversations already taking place in communities. Listening to people who have not been heard previously can also create discomfort in communities and challenge social narratives.
