Connect in Place: This Place Now

June 23, 2020 | 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.

These are uncertain and undetermined times which call for, as Rebecca Solnit has written, “an imagination adequate to the possibilities and the strangeness and dangers on this earth in this moment.” How has where you are affected your experience of the pandemic? How have you seen yourself and your community adapt? What can you imagine recovery might look like? This virtual community conversation will connect Oregonians to reflect on our resilience, to compare notes about our experiences during this pandemic, to share and learn about the places we live, and to imagine what healing is needed for the places we share. This week’s conversations are for people living in the Columbia River Gorge, in Eastern Oregon, and on the Oregon Coast. Facilitators are Lisa Naas Cook of Hood River, Christina deVillier of Lostine, and Russ Pierson of Florence.
