A Celebration of Showing Up


In the realm of ideas everything depends on enthusiasm,

in the real world all rests on perseverance. 

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


Every day lots of Vermonters get up and go to work in organizations that are helping and healing people: teachers, doctors, nurses, therapists, caregivers, teachers, social workers, reporters, front line workers, advocates, town council members, legislators, and many more. They spend their time working to make our lives better...Come join us for an evening for stories about celebrating the work of these 'communities of compassion' that are all around us. We aim for you to leave with a sense of connection, affirmation, and the goodness of knowing that lots of people truly believe we are all in this together – and have the stories to prove it.

The Master of Ceremonies for the night is Gareth Higgins (and he’ll tell a story or two). Gareth was born in Belfast in 1975, grew up during “The Troubles” in northern Ireland, and is now a writer, speaker, activist, and wonderful storyteller.

Our wonderful hosts at the Zenbarn will be serving dinner starting at 6PM. We'd recommend that you come by early and enjoy the great food and the bar. (The menu will be the "Concert Menu" on the Zenbarn website.) Storytelling starts at 7:30PM.
