The DICHOTOMY of CONNECTION: With all the amazing ways we can connect over social media, you’d think our relationships & sense of community would be strong.
Vancouver (my geographical home base) is on the forefront of the tech field, with companies like Amazon, Ted Talks, and Microsoft moving offices here.
Our city planners have designed one of the most livable places on earth, intentionally building public spaces for community.
Yet, Loneliness is our most pressing social issue, according to a study that asked community leaders their insight.
Design of technology and space adds to quality of life - yes! But it will only truly thrive if we keep the heart and the human connection at the heart of it all.
I remember when I 1st moved to Vancouver, in my loneliness, I called a radio show to ask for advice on how to meet people. My voice cracked because I hadn’t spoken to anyone all week.
Reducing Loneliness in my city is one of my greatest motivators in CREATING SPACE FOR MEANINGFUL CONNECTIONS in my calligraphy workshops & meetups.
I’m thrilled to announce that for the 2nd year, we’ve received a neighbourhood small ground from the @vancouverfdn to build our free meetups. Congrats on 20 years of grant-giving! #happy20NSG
Our PEN PRACTICE MEETUPS are where we gather for:
1️⃣ curated conversation about community & belonging
2️⃣ intentional time to practice our lettering
3️⃣ writing notes of encouragement to donate to women & youth in recovery.
If that wasn’t exciting enough, we’re multiplying! We applied for (and they said yes!) to a 2nd grant in a different neighbourhood, which will be led by @whampam_pa_ram (that’s Pam and I at our community meetup last year)
➡️ Join me at our next PEN MEETUP on June 9 in Vancouver. Can’t make it? Sign up for the waitlist for future dates. DM or comment below if you’re coming!
➡️ Join me in ORGANIZING FUTURE MEETUPS, in Vancouver, or in your own city. Support provided. DM me or comment below.
➡️ I have a couple of spots left in my June 2 BRUSH CALLIGRAPHY WORKSHOP ((Link in bio)
Share with me in the comments: what’s your struggle in connecting in community?
