Event description

Description

This workshop is for community leaders in Lafayette - those in city departments, committees and commissions, the business community, various social services and more! Be part of the fun and fascinating process of making connections between different parts of our community! We will enhance and build upon communication and collaborations between leaders in various roles and community concerns. Because Lafayette is relatively small and not as compartmentalized as many other communities, we can get to know each other, our place and our collective work in ways that other communities cannot.

This 2 hour workshop will bring people together to discover and re-discover interconnections in our work. We will explore how connections to the actual land that is Lafayette can be a powerful context for addressing community needs and challenges. The workshop will consist of short talks interspersed with interactive activities and discussions to discover and practically act upon new-found connections to make our community an increasingly healthy, fun and sustainable place to live.

Participants will be invited to create “case studies” to focus practical attention to general concepts. We will use one case study to kick-start discussion – the existing and potential connections between the arenas of youth/education, environment/sustainability and business/entrepreneurship. The setting – The Collective Community Arts Center in Lafayette – has been chosen intentionally to encourage the role of the arts as a “community glue” in establishing connections discussed, above.

This event is co-sponsored by the Lafayette Arts & Cultural Resources Department and by the Lafayette Youth Advisory Committee. Event will begin at 11 a.m. with free lunch and networking. Workshop will start promptly at 11:30.
