Event description

Description

Groundswell SocialS is a weekly gathering featuring local folk (including entrepreneurs, leaders, activists, professionals, & other inspiring people), who are making on-the-ground, real positive change and are eager to share their experience and knowledge with the greater community.

Call it social enterprise, community building, social innovation, change-making, meaningful work, professional development, or just kicking back with a drink and a room full of curious, smart, heart-centered doers (yes, this means YOU!) - come and find your community here.

Doors at 5:00pm | Speaker at 5:30pm | Bar open until 8:00pm


You are invited!

November 29th John Kay, CEO - Realize Coop

December

EACH WEEK

A new speaker, or set of speakers, will share their story and experience and engage in dialogue with attendees in a Q&A session. Afterward, the bar will remain open and you can stay - or come late and join us then! - for a casual, warm soiree where you can energize and grow the groundswell of social change together, with play and work.
