San Francisco Cohousing and East Bay Cohousing (EBCOHO) present: Cohousing and Cohousing Seekers: Join us this Thursday evening (1/19) for an impromptu reception at the HUB coworking space for Social Entrepreneurs at the San Francisco Chronicle Building downtown at 5th and Mission. Meet a couple of French filmmakers in town fresh from visiting several communities and ecovillages. Hear about their travels and talk about our own community experiences and visions. They may record some on-camera interviews. We hosted them at Berkeley Cohousing last Sunday and had lots of fun sharing and eating together. ( This is also a first opportunity for you to pick up fliers to help get the word out for the Getting-It-Built workshop with Kathryn McCamant and Charles Durrett that SF cohousing is hosting March 10-11 and get your registration check in -- beat the rush and save your seat! East Bay Cohousing is partnering with SF cohousing to incubate the new group, act as fiscal agent and collect checks and online payments, which will be refunded if we don't get enough sign-ups by the end of February. But so far, demand is strong, with about a third of the spots in the class committed before outreach begins. And we'll also have hot-off-the-press fliers for the National Cohousing Conference coming to downtown Oakland in June. ) Anyways, back to the filmmakers. They wrote: We are two French movie-makers making a documentary movie on the Western lifestyle, its impacts on the Planet and people and alternative ways to be environmentally and ethically respectful. We are an independent crew and the film is mainly destined to French cinemas and high-schools. (although it should be available in the U.S. as well) A big part on our movie is about other ways to live and more specifically in an urban environment. So it would be great if your co-housing community is part of our movie. We would like to know if it is possible to organize an interview with different people, sharing the experience of co-housing in the Bay. We would like to discuss with you about the motivations to start to think about living together, how does it work in the everyday life, what are the different trade-offs. Also how do you set-up this kind of initiative, how it could be extended, ... We really hope you will be interested and free for an interview. Feel free to ask any other information, Hoping to hear from you soon, Regards, Maite Mosca and Florence Schmidt RSVP and sign up for earlier notices of area opportunities like this, get more details and see graphics: * via either East Bay Cohousing (now with over 1500 members!): http://www.ebcoho.org/events/48726322/ * or San Francisco Cohousing: http://www.meetup.com/San-Francisco-Cohousing-Project/events/48726712/ depending on your area of interest P.S. from Raines, your Cohousing Coach: We'll meet for about an hour, then we'll probably migrate to the emerging Mid-Market "microhood" gathering a block away and meet the pioneers in the area, new home to Twitter and Burning Man, among other exciting organizations.... and perhaps a future cohousing site?
