Strategic Planning Brainstorm and Bardic Circle
We will gather to share visions and ideas for ReTribe's future, to eat desserts and to share music, stories, jokes, skits, dance or anything that you would like to share in our Community Bardic Circle night.
Open Space Community Brainstorm:
We invite you all to participate in an "Open Space" discussion around the future of ReTribe. This process is to enable us to gather input from the wider ReTribe community in preparation for the Strategic Planning Meeting to be held through the weekend by the core ReTribe staff.
With this new land to care for, we find ourselves in a pivotal time of growth and change and we welcome all of the dreams and visions of the community as we move forward and manifest our future.
During this time we will share a Dessert Potluck (Please bring a dessert to share. ReTribe will provide hot drinks). Children are welcome to participate in the brainstorm or just hang out.
Following our Open Space discussions we will come together for a Bardic Circle. This is an opportunity for you to share something with the community and to witness other's sharings. Please share whatever you would like including music, jokes, stories, dance, skits, riddles, poems and raps or anything else you'd like to share.
There will be a sign up list when you arrive. Acts should be around 4 minutes or less. We look forward to sharing this time with all of you.
