Some seeds for discussion:
2010 Convergence Information
from Shared Ideas to Coordinated Action
The GKC Convergence is an opportunity for people from across the country and around the world to come together to vision, share ideas and resources, and further our work in a more unified and collaborative way. The process started in 2009 when we came together in a facilitated process to form issue-based working groups. Five groups were formed: Sustaining the Beloved Community, Co-Creating Peace, Education for Nonviolence, Healing, Transformation, and Ending Oppression, Raising the Voice of the Community (tweet!). Work on these topics has continued throughout the year on our online site: gandhiking-convergence.ning.com.
The 2010 Convergence has transformed itself in order to better meet the needs of participants. On Friday and Saturday of the Conference the Convergence space will be located on the stage of the University Theatre. There you will find our five issue areas represented in a graphic and interactive manner and you will have the opportunity to engage in the discussion by adding your voice and opinion to the process. It is an interactive process though, so its success is contingent on your participation. The Convergence space on the Theatre stage will be open all day on Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, the process will culminate in a facilitated working group session from 12:00p-2:45p at the National Civil Rights Museum. Participants will translate and dialogue around how to carry our work forward in the coming year and will look to dig deeper and turn our collective knowledge into concrete action. Join us!
