Confab: The Call
Morning java. Wireless. Comfy spots to sit. Something to nosh. A drink later on. War stories. Laughter. Plenty to talk about. Lots to catch up. A smirky future just hoping we can catch it. Inspiration waiting for the ask.
We always say we’ve got to do it but we rarely get around making it real. So let’s get together. Not at or as a conference. Instead, it’s time for our confab.
An old-school group convo. We’re talking cafe-style seating. (No auditorium, rows, or half-tables.) Power strips and wireless. We’ll even throw in a little sweet swing as background (music).
Calling folk who deal with young hopes and dreams. We want a conversation with people who encourage, support, nurture, and teach on the street, on the fly, and in places that are not traditionally called classrooms. We want to hear from those of you who work with students and staff in your community to plunge young people into an environment full of color, music, and conversation – building places for people to come together, find passion, write poetry, and find love.
We’ll get together on February 21, 2014. You can read more about the event on the pages listed, and you can sign up on our EventBrite page. Hope you will be able to join us.
