Community Conversation and Conspiracy – Feb 11 Brooklyn NYC

Community Conversations and Conspiracies – Existing and New Communities

Tuesday February 11th, 2014 at the Brooklyn Urban dZong (the BUZ) located at 778 Bergen St. 2FL, Brooklyn, New York 11238 [A few blocks from Clinton-Washington Ave A or C lines and ten minute walk from the Grand Army Plaza 2, 3, and 4 lines]

An evening of discussion and opening possibilities.  You are cordially invited, this event is free – and please bring food if you are coming for the pot luck.  Please RSVP on the Facebook Event Page.

Potluck 6 to 8 PM:  Demonstrating the power of sharing by doing it.  Dinner and conversation on income and resource sharing communities in general and the Twin Oaks and Acorn communes specifically.  Minimal dish coordination online before the event, all welcome.  Perhaps 30 minutes of presentation and the rest Q&A about what is (in the field of highly intentional community and sharing systems) and why it is important.

Point A Intro 8:15 PM to 10:15 PM:  Point A is a forming intentional community with likely largely independent branches in Washington DC and the NYC metro area.  The mission is to provide an amplifying environment for self identified high achieving individuals willing to work collectively and for the greater good.  Drawing from the successful income sharing models around while hybridizing to embrace all manner of extraordinary circumstances and post nuclear families.  With luck Point A NYC will open in 2015 and will have cottage industries to support members who don’t bring their own income sources or engines.

Brainstorm 10:30 PM to midnight:  What are the brilliant ideas and opportunities for intentional communities and accessible public sharing systems in the NYC metro area.  What is working, what might work and what insightful lessons can be drawn from previous failures and missteps.  Visionaries, storytellers and reckless dreamers welcome.
