Thriving Communities is a cherished, sustainable, viable movement that addresses, through film and dialogue, the difficult issues facing all our communities today.
This year we continue exploring the felt sense and opportunity that belonging engenders.
These days together will provide stories that connect from Whidbey Island to Richmond, Virginia. More often it is what we don’t know exists in our communities that makes a community more vibrant. These are the stories we explore, and we get to peek into the lives of engaged people and their inspiring work.
Please join us in our 9th Gathering of Thriving Communities at the Whidbey Institute from the evening of November 4 through the afternoon of November 6 to share stories of belonging. In our time together we will engage in exploration of how to share and implant these concepts in our own communities.
The best word for the experience is profound—every TC Gathering weaves its own kind of magic. The more diverse the group, the more successful the experience. It’s a weekend of connecting, deep listening, and action. Watching films together brings us closer and feeds the soul.
