About this event

JOIN US for the August 2022 Positive Deviants for Community Transformation Retreat!

When Positive Deviants from Dayton, Pittsburgh, and Indianapolis came together for a conversation around shared values, they discovered a bond beyond geography and regional challenges. Each community is the home of many unconventional change agents. These people are innovating the work of transforming their communities, often without recognition or sufficient resources.

Positive Deviants for Community Transformation is a pilot series of 3 national conversations at the intersection of community transformation and creative expression, led by people who are actually doing the work. Connecting, re-energizing, and expanding the practice of Positive Deviants is our goal.

Our retreats feature insights from Positive Deviants and creative disruptors, nominated through a public call for applicants. During these half day retreats, attendees from all places and spaces will engage with organizers, featured guests, and attendees.  People will uncover new ways of thinking and doing from across the country to bring back to their own community.
