Intentional Communities Panel: Sharing Resources

February 7 @ 7:30 PM - 11:00 PM EST , Brooklyn, NY Event Website

In the process of sharing a house you share much more than just the roof over your head. You share a space that shapes you. What do you offer and what do you receive? How do you build a home that you’re proud to belong to? Whether it’s a commune and their CSA or a loft with equitable rent, each community shapes their particular financial structure and communal resource contributions to fit their values.

Join us Thursday, February 7 at HACIENDA Studio (Bushwick, Brooklyn) for a panelist discussion of the rewards and challenges of shared resources in intentional communities. Founders, community members, and researchers will discuss their history and experiences on questions about sharing. What do communities share universally? What resources aren’t shared? And how do they do it? Come with questions, enter the raffle, and stick around for a BYOB post-panel social hour.

STEP 1: Register to receive the address at https://goo.gl/forms/K8BinaxKOFmxzs782

STEP 2: Send your suggested $18 donation to [email protected] on PayPal. All proceeds will benefit the Coalition for the Homeless!

Doors Open: 7:30pm

Raffle drawing: 10pm
Social until 11:00pm

Why PayPal?
After trying a whole bunch of ticketing websites, we realized we don’t need one for this event. If you “send to a friend” on PayPal, we avoid transaction fees for the guests and the hosts, meaning more money for the Coalition for the Homeless. Send your PayPal donation to [email protected], or use this link:

Other notes:
The event is BYOB. There will be snacks and water offered free of charge.

The address will be sent to you after you register (at least 2 days before the event). Hacienda Villa is a private residence so for the safety and comfort of the house members, the address is not disclosed publicly.

Donations will be processed through PayPal. Donations are non-refundable.

You must register through the Google form to receive the address.

Always wait for enthusiastic consent before touching/hugging. Photography is allowed – always ask consent for photos.
