Sky *Call for Presenters* *Living as Community: West Coast Communities Conference* *October 9 – 12, 2015* *Groundswell Community & Institute* *Yorkville, CA (2 hours north of bay area)* Groundswell, an emerging ecovillage and retreat center, is proud to announce a new West Coast Communities Conference. Organized with sponsorship from the Fellowship for Intentional Communities (FIC) and the Federation of Egalitarian Communes (FEC), the main goal of this conference is to provide opportunities for networking and skill building for people involved with the communities movement. Those who already have experience with community will be able to share and increase their skills. while those who may be new to the movement will learn a wide range of models and practices that others have used in starting and sustaining successful communities. We are hoping to have a wide range of community movers and shakers to present workshops, dialogues, and demonstrations. Anyone with interest or experience in worker cooperatives, rural communes, artist collectives, or any other kind of communal enterprise is invited to participate. We encourage people to be creative in the matter and manner of these presentations and ask only that they hold some relation to intentional community. In addition, the organizing team is still looking for help with logistics both before and during the conference. If you are interested in being involved in that way, please don’t hesitate to be in touch. *To propose a presentation, get involved in other ways, or for more information, please contact:* *Kyle DeVries* *Project Coordinator* *email@example.com* *415-846-3905 <415-846-3905>* *Special Communities Salon: *On Saturday of the conference, representatives of different communities will have the opportunity to introduce themselves through short presentations to the attendees. In addition, communities are invited to bring tabletop displays to help show off their home. This is a great opportunity for communities to meet potential new members and vice versa.
