It has been a year since we collectively entered a chapter of isolation and physical distance between ourselves and many of our loved ones. How have we changed? How will we connect with more intentionality moving forward?
Join Priya Parker, acclaimed author of "The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why it Matters" and the host of the New York Times podcast, Together Apart, as we explore the impacts of forced isolation and a more connected future. Attendees will receive a complimentary e-copy of "The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why it Matters."
The summit will be infused with many of Priya Parker’s principles of gathering, and will be unlike virtual events you’ve attended in the past. We will explore the impacts of social isolation on various populations, as well as alternative models of connection and care designed to meet the changing needs of a lonely world.
Participants will have the opportunity to join breakout sessions on topics including aging and isolation, youth and belonging, communities of unhoused individuals, communal living and much more. The event will culminate with a fireside chat with Priya Parker and an opportunity to connect with others on the message that she shares. Connection and purpose will be woven throughout the event, so we encourage you to join us for the entire afternoon.
