Edmonton Resilience Festival 2016

Logo_Resilience Festival with Title2

Mission Statement:

The Edmonton Resilience Festival aims to strengthen community resilience through skill-sharing workshops and other events, inspiring participants to help create a sustainable, creative and promising future. The festival will also help to restore a sense of community that is often lost in cities experiencing rapid development and population growth. By bringing together diverse participants and creating opportunities for learning, sharing and connecting, we hope to expand our horizons, our skill sets and our community networks.

What can attendees expect?

Edmonton Resilience Festival will run April 29th through May 1st, 2016, at Boyle Street Plaza in downtown Edmonton. We are planning a mix of hands-on practical workshops, guided Conversation Cafés, art and social events, and a fair showcasing the work of community organizations called the Community Connections Fair.
