Shattering Social Silos: Taking Relationships from Sectored to Spacious
Monday, February 11, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM (EST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Social change is the responsibility of all individuals, organizations and sectors. We can hardly expect to effect change in institutions and in our cultures if we don't take risks in our social lives to do the same. What would it look like to begin moving outside the social silos in which we tend to hunker down? What would it look like to cross boundaries and borders and to cultivate social networks and community that are quite diverse so that -- through mutual respect, understanding, and ultimately empathy -- we could all flourish more fully?
This Talk will be hosted by Cary Umhau and Joey Katona of SPACIOUS, a social venture that consults and puts on events around D.C. (and also in other cities).
This collaborative conversation promises to be lively and active, reflective and deep. It will gently challenge us all to reconsider our limitations, create space for brainstorming around solutions, and perhaps even generate ideas for new SPACIOUS events that you help co-create.
