Thriving Communities Gathering 2019

March 15 - March 17

Welcome to 8th year of Thriving Communities!
Held in Partnership with ABC (Association of Beloved Communities)

The exploration and focus will be on youth and their perspective on arts and culture, through their eyes as filmmakers and thought leaders. Our world and our communities need youth views in the conversation. Through their films, we will weave conversations (during World Café and Open Space) so all of our voices are included.

Actionable outcomes will be expected.

Announcing an exciting additional opportunity!

On Friday, March 15, the internationally acclaimed Story Bridge team will co-create a Play in a Day with us to inspire our gathering. We encourage you to participate in this story/theater experience. It’s a valuable transformational community-building tool. If you want to participate, please sign up on the registration form (there’s a small additional charge.)

 The Thriving Communities gathering begins with supper Friday night. After supper, we’ll all watch the Story Bridge play—created that day, and featuring some of our fellow participants.
