Community Quest – March 15th in Brooklyn

This is a new event the Point A project is organizing in Brooklyn.  If you are in the city and interested in community, please consider coming by.  If you have material to present, please email me and we will see if we can get you into the program.  If you have a residential community project in the greater NYC area, consider coming and presenting about it during the “Meet the Communities” section of this event.  If you do Facebook, please RSVP here.

Community Quest: Finding and Building Collective Living Situations in NYC  –

Saturday March 15th noon to 6:30 PM 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]

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.  

Noon to 1 PM  Panel discussion on Success (and Failure) of Communities in the NYC area

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

4:15 PM to 5:30 PM

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.

    i see the cities as ripe fields for bringing intentional commune consciousness to the fore and harmonizing it with the communities that are already present.

    q: what did one ass cheek say to the other?
    a: if we stick together we can stop this shit from happenning.

    i find myself being invited to come to church congregation community meetings. building a nation from the ground up. with god on our side, we may have a chance.
