HOBACK, Wyo. —Join Astoria Park Conservancy in partnership with Across the Table for a series of winter conversations designed to improve connections and understanding across demographics within our community.
This series of “Conservancy Conversations” will consist of four topic-focused, facilitated conversations held monthly. Conversations held in Astoria’s Johnny Counts Cabin will last 1.5 hours and after, attendees will be able to carry their experience into the hot springs for an optional soak.
These conversations will center around the topics:
How Does My Social Class Impact Who I am?
Saturday, Nov. 20, 10:30 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Facilitated by Abigail Ridgway
For Whom Are We Responsible?
Saturday, Dec. 18, 1:30 p.m. – 3 p.m.
Facilitated by Candra Day
What Does it Mean to be an Insider or an Outsider?
Saturday, Jan. 22, 10:30 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Facilitated by Ingrid Krasnow
What is Essential to Our Lives and Community?
Saturday, Feb. 12, 10:45 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.
Facilitated by Meredith Adams
Advanced registration for these conversations is required and space is limited. Tickets are $25, which includes the conversation and refreshments, along with the soak portion of the event. If this program fee is prohibitive to anyone in the community, as part of Astoria Park Conservancy’s Access Fund that works to create accessible spaces for community members facing financial and social barriers of entry, subsidized admission will be granted– no questions asked. To learn more about this offering, reach out to the Conservancy’s Manager of Programs and Development, Dory Sumner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“These experiences will allow a diverse array of residents across demographics and perspectives to come together in a safe environment to have meaningful conversations surrounding topics that impact our lives more and more every day,” said Paige Byron Curry, Astoria Park Conservancy’s Executive Director.
All are welcome as groups create community connections followed by a relaxing soak in Astoria’s mineral pools.
