Info on the Monday program, The Community Clinic:
Are you part of a community or organization that is new, recently formed, redeveloping, or considering redeveloping? This one-day follow-up to the Twin Oaks Communities Conference on Labor Day, Mon. Sept. 1st, will provide a platform for these groups to consult with experienced community builders, connect with resources, and troubleshoot with other groups.
This year’s theme is Radical Sharing:
Sharing is no secret. It’s well known that sharing can make your life better, whether it’s from an economic, social, or environmental perspective. But sharing is daring. It requires trust. It requires communication. It requires a whole set of skills and attitudes not taught to us in our hyper-individualized, capitalist economy. In the mainstream economy sharing is inconvenient, discouraged, or even illegal. Community is about sharing. Community is about the systems and the culture that make sharing possible and make it a force that can solve the biggest problems facing the world today.
