Building Communities with Vision and Purpose
Date: September 28 10:00am - 1:00pm Location: South Chapel, Graduate Campus
South Chapel, Graduate Campus
What can be done to counter the fragmentation of our communities? How can we come together, share our experiences, and find common purpose? What questions will prompt deeper understanding and connection?
This workshop, designed for concerned citizens from all walks of life, is a demonstration of a dialogue method that can be employed in any community. It is based on the work of Peter Block, whose book Community: The Structure of Belonging, has guided many struggling communities back to vitality.
Participants will experience a simulation of a community dialogue, give feedback on the model, and take home resources to help them foster dialogue in their own communities.
