What is a Village?
“In the simplest terms, it is the intersection and interconnection of people and place” explains Jamaica Stevens, author, event producer, and community activist. “How do we create a culture shift towards communities of celebration, cooperation, resilience, and respect?”
Jamaica set about sharing some answers to these questions in her culture-shifting ReInhabiting the Village project.
As a former board member and ongoing collaborator with the Foundation for Intentional Community, Jamaica continues to contribute leadership and innovative approaches to gather people consciously around a common cause, to harvest collective intelligence, and to enjoy ourselves along the way.

On a recent episode of the Conscious Community Podcast, we get to hear more about Jamaica’s ideas on ‘How to Create a more Cooperative Culture.’
Hosted by Janae Jean and Spencer Schulter, their deep and wide-ranging in scope, their conversation gets into the importance of artwork to reflect and change culture, how festivals can actually be enriching for participants and regenerating to environments, how engaging in local government and intergenerational cooperation is necessary, how to broaden the movement to reach more people, and why we must band together to create changes we need in the world.
