Almost two years ago Tamarack launched its 1,000 Conversations Campaign to explore people’s experiences of community across Canada. This journey has introduced us to many incredible people who shared beautiful stories of communities coming together in times of need and opportunity. These stories, and the insights they have generated, have been shared as blogs on www.seekingcommunity.ca and through these quarterly newsletters.
As Tamarack wraps up the 1000 Conversations Campaign as a stand-alone project, we are documenting the project and its findings in a Report that will be available soon.
Into the future Tamarack will be continuing to explore and deepen our understanding of community and will also continue to partner
with local communities to host Community Conversations as part of Deepening Community, a movement focused on building a shared understanding of the unique role of community as a driver for social change. The learnings gleaned from the 1,000 Conversations Campaign will inform and shape this work. Learn more at: www.seekingcommunity.ca.
This final newsletter of the 1,000 Conversations Campaign reviews the 200+ conversations that have been held and documented in order to identify and profile actions that help to build and foster a deeper sense of community.
