In this, our flagship class, we draw from our experience as artists and human beings to have a dialog arising from our life together here and in the larger society. In an atmosphere of trust and safety, and inspired by song and story, we will listen to and learn from the voices of our sisters and brothers from communities represented in our circle. We gather at Common Ground on the Hill in our twenty-seventh summer in the midst of a world experiencing continuing financial and ecological crises, wars, climate disasters, growing nuclear threats, racial crises, the continued unveiling of systemic abuse, issues of immigration, the omnipresent threat of terror both foreign and domestic, and divisive politics. Yet, we also find ourselves at a time of potential for great, needed change. We shall discuss and consider what we are doing, as artists and individuals, to bring about the changes and create the communities that we desire. To inspire us and help focus our dialog, we will learn of the work of some of those in our circle.
