Intentional Community Presentation

Community Quest: Finding and Building Collective Living Situations in NYC
Saturday March 15th noon to 6:30 PM
At the Brooklyn Urban dZong: 778 Bergen St., Brooklyn, New York 11238 (see map below)
Corner of Bergen and Grand.

Communities begin as conversations. Rich chats about dreams and pragmatic discussions on logistics and finances. These are visionary talks about where we want to get to and concrete discussions of what the first steps to take are. Most communities don’t get beyond the start up conversation stage.

It takes all kinds of conversations.

This one day event is designed to help people who are seeking to join or start residential intentional communities find like minded others and discover new or established communities in the NYC area. Come present your forming or existing community to people who might join you or otherwise be allies. Here is the forming agenda for the event. Note: there is still time to add your content so drop us a line if you’re got a suggestion or request.

Noon to 1 PM Panel discussion on Success (and Failure) of Communities

1 PM to 2:30 PM Meet the Communities - presentation of existing and forming communities in the NYC metro area and the "market place" of communities

2:45 to 4 PM first workshop block:
Renovation without Gentrification
Squatting and Salvage

4:15 PM to 5:30 PM:
Community legal structures: Coops, co-housing and land trusts
Bridges to Burners - How transformative festivals relate to Intentional Communities
The Larger Community, IC Inter-Cooperation, and an Organized Foodshed

5:45 to 6:30 PM next steps and exit networking

A $5 donation is requested, but no one is turned away due to a lack of funds.
