Participating ~ Creating the Communities We Wish To...

The Maine Humanities Council and the Portland Public Library invite you to engage in a facilitated discussion on the topic of Creating the Communities We Wish to Live In. It’s about sharing your thoughts and listening to others as you discuss a selected reading, not about coming to consensus on next steps. However, if you’re group is interested, Lift360 will offer follow up workshops on action planning and implementation for strengthening community through our neighborhoods (more on that soon).

We have a fabulous short reading that raises important issues, space to meet, an hour and a half set aside, and someone to help get the conversation going. ALL WE NEED IS YOU!

December 18th 6:00pm – 7:30pm 
Portland Public Library, Riverton Branch  1600 Forest Avenue
