Imagine a festival that combines music and the arts; thought-provoking workshops, speakers and conversation; community; and nature – all aimed at giving us the inspiration to work together to build stronger communities and more fulfilling lives for ourselves. The first will take place in Washington, DC on Saturday, July 21st from 12-8 pm at beautiful Meridian Hill/Malcolm X Park in Columbia Heights.

Join us for music, yoga, dancing, the giant Canopy of Hope hands-on arts project, food trucks, workshops and nonprofit organizations talking about their work and opportunities for volunteering.

The great movements of the past several centuries were anchored by big events that inspired and mobilized large numbers of people. We need to do the same if we are to succeed in getting a tutor and mentor for every student who needs one – our immediate goal – and in creating the civic leadership movement we need to navigate the challenges we face with growing inequality, persistent poverty, climate change, and polarized government. If we want thriving communities and a healthy democracy, we need to step up our game.
