PLACE Power - The Village Heart Is Everywhere
A Presentation by Mark Lakeman (City Repair Portand and Village Building Convergence)
COST: $10-20 Sliding Scale
Though the inexorable cultural action project of humanity may have been thrown off course in the last several centuries, the true village of our hearts remains alive, expressed every day through our actions and choices.
Come tonight, to hear west coast stories of creative courage and determination, where hearts burst with love-rage, laws are challenged and remade, when children and politicians become leaders at last, stories that will leave you proud to be a person. Come tonight, to share stories as we renew our commitment to the common cause of resilient human community. The village heart is not gone, it is everywhere.
