Last update on tomorrow night’s Potluck/Presentation & Discussion starting at 6PM.
My presentation now is a power point that tells about the little-known but fascinating history of community-wide collaboration, it’s relationship to building democracy, women getting to vote and the later community organizing efforts done to enhance “participatory democracy.” Then I’ll focus on the Assets-Based Community Development (ABCD) approach and how it adds a vital feature – the transformation of consciousness, and some related upcoming events in Asheville.
The topic now is named: What do Community Collaboration, Democracy and the Transformation of Consciousness have in Common?
After the presentation, we will have our usual lively discussion on these ideas and the possibilities for our area. Please RSVP & join us! Bring a covered dish to share, a beverage (we’ll have tea & wine), your curiosity and your imagination!
