For three weeks in July 2017, Revival visited 10 cities throughout the Salish Sea bioregion during their “ART of Social Change Tour.” In chautauqua-like fashion, a troupe of 7 diverse artists & activists roamed the countryside, teaching Joanna Macy’s “Work That ReConnnects” workshops each day, facilitating potent dialogue over community potlucks each eve, and performing protest, folk, gospel, and justice-oriented music and poetry each night! Over 700 people and 24 community organizations participated. The connections are still buzzing to this day! The Revival steering committee has since designed a 3 day gathering, inviting 250 bioregional change-makers back for 3 days of deep dive social impact work in June 2018! AND MORE TO COME!
