IMPORTANT UPDATE

The 2020 Thriving Communities Gathering has been postponed out of consideration for the current public health conditions.

 

Please see Whidbey Institute’s March 12 update for more context. 

THRIVING COMMUNITIES believes in sharing stories through film to support a deeper understanding of ourselves and each other. 

Find your people. Watch films. 
Share knowledge. Grow.

What’s a thriving community? It's one that fosters a sense of belonging, that feels alive and engaged and welcoming and resilient. Where people get creative when new problems arise and work together to navigate change. It’s one you’re

glad to come home to. It’s one you love.

What’s Thriving Communities? We’re committed

to promoting uncommon solutions to common challenges. We film communities’ stories so

everyone can see what they accomplished and learned. We also host an amazing annual gathering

to build this community—a gathering that feels like home. Come find your people, share stories, try out ideas, and deepen your own sense of belonging. 

Watch films of people effecting positive change.
Find communities and resources to help you
Come to our annual gathering to find your people!
