ABCD Festival 2015

In June 2015, to mark the 20th Anniversary of the ABCD Institute, people from around the world will be gathering in the village of Ribby Hall, in Blackpool in England for the The ABCD Festival. This festival will gather together people who have fostered place-based, citizen-led, and asset-based social movements. Learn more about this amazing festivaland how you can attend.

If you'reinterested in attending the festival, but are concerned about registration costs, there are some scholarships available for a limited time. Check out thisannouncementto learn more.

"Working in the Gap"

In our last newsletter, we introduced the concept of "Working in the Gap." While this name may not be familiar to you, many ABCD folks instantly recognize the ideas behind the label - that there is a transformation taking place as institutions work to become asset-focused and community-driven.

We now have conversations, blogs and eventstaking place around this topic. Feel free to join or respond to any of these. You are also welcome to start your own conversation or to share your thoughts on this topic in a blog.
