Subject: Nourishing the Politics of Hope: An Evening of Community Conversation
Nourishing the Politics of Hope
An Evening of Community Dialogue
Friday, May 23, 7:00 to 9:30 PM
Please join us for a rewarding evening of conversation, reflection and collaborative learning as we explore the landscape of hope.
The United States’ Presidential election cycle has sparked a new awareness of what it means to be a global citizen given the challenges facing our world today. We are witnessing a sea change in the political arena as more and more people are raising their voices, not only in protest, but in solidarity, possibility and longing for positive change.
How is this playing out in your life? Who are you taking to? What are you talking about? What role are you playing in this democratic renaissance?
We invite you to an enlivening evening dedicated to hope, possibility and an exploration into how we might harness the energy being unleased in politics today to shape a better world for tomorrow.
Hosted by Bali Institute for Global Renewal
The evening will feature facilitation by:
Ryan Feinstein – Director, Global Youth in Action
Isaac Zikri – Visiting from Sumatra Indonesia
Ken Homer – Founder, Leading Sustainable Conversations
Shannon Dulaney and Shaina Patel – Students at UC San Diego
Hope lives in our hearts and is nourished by our stories.
Come and share stories and be part of this great experiment in making our world a better place.

Our thanks to ArtHouse for opening their wonderful space to us.
ArtHouse currently has an Emerging Artists Exhibit co-partnering with California Institute of Integral Studies. The exhibit will run until June 27, 2008. Three incredible artists, Miles Epstein, David Jay Trachtenberg and Alberto Ybarra are exhibiting in this 5th Annual Spirit In the Arts. Gallery Hours are by appointment.
ArtHouse is a resource for arts communities throughout the Bay Area. They have an artist “hotline” where subscribers can search listings for live/work and studio spaces. In addition, ArtHouse rents out studio and office space to creative groups and non-profit organizations.
As a resource for the arts in San Francisco, ArtHouse consults on a variety of arts related projects such as Bayview Hunters Point Shipyard where they are working with the Shipyard artists to develop an Arts District. Through a generous grant from the San Francisco Arts Commission, ArtHouse will be building out artist studios at their Mission Street address later in 2008.
