Care Cafe is a place - a real or virtual, public or domestic place for people to gather - their wits, thoughts and comrades in action.
Since the results of Brexit and the US election, a lot of us are trying to figure out how to breathe through this present moment and look for ways to keep connected to each other while we figure out what to do about our future.
Care Café, is a way to address some of these things.
The Care Cafe was conceived by Lois Weaver as a place for us to be in company with others, to express care for each other, to find ways to care about others on the other side of this great divide, to talk about the issues and to find ways to act. Lois Weaver is an artist whose work over the last few years has been about finding creative ways of using the familiar to get people to talk with and about the unfamiliar. In response to this painful moment, she is proposing the Care Cafe as a new call to conversation.
The only thing on the program is care and small group conversation.
So people can drop in any time during these two hours and bring their thoughts, strategies, friends and maybe some treats to share.
