A World CafĂ© to redefine our community Saturday, November 7, 2009 9:30 AM – 4:30 PM

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead
You are warmly invited to gather and explore the themes of Conversation, Creativity and Community. We will be working together to uncover new insights and possibilities for action in building a stronger creative community for everyone.
The Questions:
= Why don’t we know our neighbors any more?
= How do we engage people to want a better community?
= How can art and the creative experience be used to bring people together?
= How can a community empower itself to support the health, well being and interests of the diverse individuals who belong to it?
Come meet some new neighbors to explore what makes up an engaged, creative community of the future that finds value in all of its members. The Participants:
Artists, self-advocates, educators, activists, community builders and people from all walks of life and abilities interested in exploring these themes. This event will be a collaboration and catalyst for more dialogues and activities around common interests and needs in your home community.
