Resilience Skills Symposium

Sunday, December 20, 2015, 1:00-4:00 pm

Part of Kindle Cascadia 2015 (or sliding scale $15-30)

Resilient: 1. able to become strong, healthy, or successful again after something bad happens. 2. able to return to an original shape after being pulled, stretched, pressed, bent, etc. (Merriam-Webster dictionary)

What does it mean to be resilient in the world today?

Which skills do we really need to make us “resilient”?

What obstacles limit our abilities to be resilient today, and how can we overcome them?

In what ways are our communities vulnerable? In what ways are they strong?

Does living in community reduce our ecological impact or carbon footprint?

Does living in community make us less dependent on the systems of society?

What is the role of community in creating culture?

What are the differences between rural and urban communities as they relate to these questions?

Join a panel of local community-livers, do-it-yourselfers, gardeners, builders, thinkers, and dreamers in tackling these questions and more. There will be space for additional questions and discussion.

Please RSVP to Pay online at, or bring cash/check to the door.
