An Exploration with Peter Block: What is Community Good For?

g

FIC is honored to host celebrated author and community builder, Peter Block, for an important conversation about the nature of community, at a time when so many of us are recognizing the value of community in our lives as never before.

Together we will unpack the various jobs of community — to raise children, provide safety, offer livelihood, care for our elders and more. This session will be rooted in Peter’s decades of experience in creating workplaces and communities that work for all. He’ll offer alternatives to the patriarchal beliefs that dominate our culture… showing how we can bring change into the world through consent and connectedness rather than through mandate and force. We hope you will join us for this short yet deep exploration to answer the multi-faceted question: What is Community Good For?
