Summer Institute for Changemakers - starts this Wed
There are a couple spots still open, and time left to join this cohort
The Summer Institute for Changemakers starts this Wednesday and we have a great group coming together so far! There are still a couple spots available, and time to get registered and join this cohort.
This summer's group is shaping up to be really incredible, with participants so far from all types of institutions and different areas of work within the fields of art and culture, higher education, city government, museums, social justice, and community engagement. Those who have already registered are from places all across the US -- everywhere from Seattle and Colorado to Massachusetts and Washington, DC (even an amazing arts leader joining from London!).
One of the best parts of each Institute is creating space for passionate changemakers to connect with each other, reflect on our change practice together, and offer collective support as we face many of the same challenges.
So if you need a bit of a reset or even some wind in your sails as you keep advocating for change in your work or your organization this year, this might be the experience you are looking for. 2023 can still be that year of positive growth and change!
The only lasting truth is Change
Change connects. Change is a part of being human, of being on this Planet. Our experience of change brings us together with others in unique and powerful ways. And we have the ability to shape change, better understand our role in affecting change in our world and the world around us, and see how the change we bring into the world comes back to change us — often in small ways that can be hard to see. Even at an elemental level, every conversation makes change happen.
Among the thinkers, writers, mentors, ancestors, and questioners that I bring into the Institute space through their words, none is more thought-provoking than science fiction author Octavia Butler (go read her Parable of the Sower if you haven’t yet). The following words from Butler frame much of the inspiration for these Institutes, and my own reflections on change (read more from an earlier post here).
"All that you touch You Change. All that you Change Changes you. The only lasting truth Is Change. God Is Change."
