November 4 -6,
Watch film shorts of stories that connect us all, from Whidbey Island to Richmond, Virginia.
Engage in dialogue that will inspire us to share and implant ideas in our own communities.
November 4th - 6th
at the Whidbey Institute
Please join us in-person for our annual Gathering of Thriving Communities at the Whidbey Institute on the evening of November 4th through the afternoon on November 6th.
These days together will provide stories that connect from Whidbey Island to Richmond, Virginia. More often it is what we don't know that exists in our communities that make a community more vibrant, and we get to peek into the people and their work through films.
In our time together we will engage in dialogue that will hopefully inspire us to explore how we can find ways to share and implant these concepts in our own communities.
The best word for the experience is profound—every TC Gathering weaves its own kind of magic. The more diverse the group, the more successful the experience. It’s a weekend of connecting, deep listening, and action. Watching films together brings us closer and feeds the soul.
