What would it mean to come together to discuss – without judgment – our most important political, economic, or social issues?
Imagine being around people again (in-person!) who share your desire to weave back the threads of social trust that have unraveled over time.
When you show up for this gathering of Weavers across the Twin Cities, you're saying that you want a community and nation brimming with deep, healthy connections. Where mutual trust and affection is the standard, equity is implicit, and all people find joy and meaning in daily life.
There are many ways to get to where we want to be. And you'll be able to get your fingerprints directly on where we go together just by participating in this second-ever gathering of local folks inspired by Weave: the Social Fabric Project.
- Introduction and context
- Let's dream together: our vision of community. Why are we Weavers? What do we hope to bring into being through weaving?
- Break time
- Origami time: learning as a group and unlearning old patterns
- A round of gratitude and appreciations
- What’s next?
- Group picture (totally optional)
How to Prepare
Just bring a curious, non-judgmental mind. Oh, and feel free to bring others you know who would enjoy a gathering like this.
We'll also have some light snacks and beverages.
Where to Park
Go for a spot in one of the parking lots south or west of Picnic Shelter B (as seen in this PDF). Wabun Park: 4655 South 46th Avenue, Minneapolis, MN
Where to Find Us
We’ll be at Picnic Shelter B at Wabun unless someone claims it before us. If you don't find us there, try Picnic Shelter F or G as seen in the map in the lower right corner (on desktop view) or bottom (in mobile view) of this PDF.
Call or text Joel at 612-240-2601 if you're having trouble finding us. He'll be the very tall, very bald, and moderately bearded guy who looks like this. 🙂
Other Important Notes
- Don’t bring any alcohol since it’s not allowed in Minneapolis parks without a permit (which we don’t have).
- Wear whatever you like, speak your truth, and show up a little early and/or stay a little late (if possible).
- There will be public restrooms, water, and however many hugs/high-fives/fist-bumps/handshakes you like.
- If you need or want to bring a family member – especially a child – Wabun has a sweet playground for them.
