Our Fireside Chat this month will be hosted by the All Belfast Climate Change Dialogues organization whose goal is to collect, document, share and save Belfast area residents’ observations, perspectives, concerns and hopes about climate change impacts in our region at this critical time. This collection will increase awareness among residents of each others’ experiences, and serve as a benchmark for future reference – and perhaps as a catalyst for taking action now.
Waterfall Arts presents Fireside Chats, an enthusiastic experiment meant to ignite conversations, boost empathy, and offer a platform for shared stories to help all of us set new intentions for our collective future. The event will take place monthly on our front lawn for anyone to gather around warm fire pits for a night of storytelling.
Why a storytelling series? Stories have the potential to break down barriers, sharpen our radical listening skills, empower community, and make us feel part of something larger than ourselves.
Who is participating? These monthly chats will include a visit from another local non-profit organization to share about their experience serving our community, and to provide us with a theme for the evening. Community partnerships provide us with a platform for collaboration and an interdependence that is necessary as Waldo County–and the rest of the state–continue to deal with the repercussions of the pandemic.
What should I do if I want to come? Just show up to help us celebrate Earth Day, come share a tale of your adventures on Earth. Last month, we shared sea stories with Come Boating, this month, ABCD asks us to share our “earth stories.” Come share your tale of adventures or misadventures on land: encounters with wildlife or wild weather, camping or gardening gone well or awry, etc. How have you been transformed by your adventures on Earth?
RSVP using the button below to let us know you’re coming, so we can ensure there’s enough warmth to go around!
