Welcome to the virtual KITCHEN TABLE
…a place to gather, converse, share ideas, and build a citizen’s assembly for inclusive and progressive change.
It’s an opportunity to participate in our democracy, to create voice, to challenge assumptions, to collaborate with new and old partners.
FORMAT: each gathering runs 70 minutes and will feature a ten minute presentation on an issue or issues with a conversation to follow. Each Table will be recorded and be available along with posts/information/links at www.ruralcreativity.org
THE NEXT KITCHEN TABLE: June 25 at 7PM ET
FOOD FOR THOUGHT…
“Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew. This one is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next. We can choose to walk through it, dragging the carcasses of our prejudice and hatred, our avarice, our data banks and dead ideas, our dead rivers and smoky skies behind us – or we can walk through lightly, with little luggage, ready to imagine another world.”Author – Suzanna Arundhati Roy
“There are different ways of knowing. Empirical scientific investigation, while powerful and extremely useful, nevertheless, is the devil that got us into the present crisis — our use of scientific information without wisdom.”Physicist – David Bohm
