Hi Folks,

Thinking about this from a meta perspective, thank you for participating in this experiment – this is all new territory. Winter quarter is almost over and spring is approaching, we’re looking to refine the direction of Revival, making it more: transparent, participatory, relevant for our community, and giving it teeth’n claws (making shit happen). Thinking global while acting local (and internally).

We’d love it if you joined us at the Library Lobby couches at 7:30pm Thursday night to plan this Sunday’s Gathering. 

Several current interests are to:

– Create a Revival committee to spread out leadership and direction

– Plan and hold a community forum at the beginning of Spring Quarter

– From here on out we will utilize a “minutes” system for each meeting to minimize cyclical meetings and increase transparency.

– Explore a collective impact model

Below are notes from our brainstorming.
