PeoplesHub Workshop – Connect online as an individual

At the Fire We Gather: A PeoplesHub Open House


Join for a PeoplesHub (virtual) fire/Open House.


2020 is a year that has defined us as an organization and as a world. We invite you to take a seat with us by the fire as we begin 2021 with hope, reflection and intention.


At PeoplesHub we are tending the fire, ensuring there is a place for all people.


We invite you to the fire if you feel a yearning inside, an opening, a desire for deeper belonging. A hope that the change you dream of will be actualized and maybe even for a moment or two it will happen around this fire.


At PeoplesHub we have asked ourselves big questions over this year and into the beginning of 2021.


What might we offer to sustain, support and fortify ourselves and our movements across the globe?


What is the role of technology and online connection in this moment in our movements and world?


More than ever, online popular education, accessible movement building and movement technology was/is needed to sustain and feed the fire of our movements moving in full force.


Join us for a creative and connecting open house. You will learn from our staff team as we reflect on our work in 2020 and look towards 2021 and beyond.


Bring your burning questions. As always there will be time for connection and reflection about our movements and the ways PeopelsHub might better support your work and lives.
