Boggs Center to Hold Community Dialogues this Fall

William Copeland recently sent this announcement to the NCDD Discussion list, and I thought I’d share it on the blog as well.  The Detroit-based Boggs Center to Nurture Community Development is hosting a series of interesting conversations this fall.  William says they promise to be meaningful exchanges, and invites all to attend.

William had this to say about the conversations:

“The Boggs Center is committed to creating a series of conversations in the fall. Some of you attended our artist-activist community building in the spring and summer and expressed interest in participating in the fall dialogues. We wanted to announce, for some, and remind others of the specific dates and topics of the conversations. We hope that you will be able to join us for as many of these discussions as possible so that these conversations (and the connections shared over the next few months) can build upon each other.”
