Art Of Community Conference To Build Upon Vision Of Utopia
Helping to build sustainable communities and nurture the minds and souls of communitarians, Intentional Communities, a project of the Fellowship for Intentional Communities, will be hosting an Art of Community conference just outside Philadelphia, PA on Saturday, May 16th.
A fabulous opportunity to get in touch with your inner community, to share community visions, and to commune, if you will, with the very nature of community life, in all of its splendor.
Whether or not it takes a village -- as in an incorporated village -- there can be no question that it takes a community.
True, it may not be community as we know it here on Long Island, but hey, raising awareness, learning about what's out there in communities beyond our pale, and convening outside Long Island's big box, might be just the inspiration you need!
