Community Emergence Series

Community Emergence Series

Inspired by adrienne maree brown’s concept of emergence as a
framework for interacting with self, others, and our planet that mimics patterns found in nature,
the Community Emergence Series is offered by the Kalamazoo Nature Center, 
ONEPlace at Kalamazoo Public Library, and Rootead Enrichment Center.
Presented by the Terry Todd International Speaker Fund.
