We believe that participatory learning and decision-making should be accessible, affordable, and fun. We love to learn new things, exchange ideas, engage in brave conversations, and test theoretical models of restorative practices in the real world.
That’s why we design and host events that provide our learning community with regular opportunities for discovery, analysis, and praxis. We hope you’ll join us for the constellation of Building a New Reality events. See below for more information.
On the second Saturday of each month, join us for a lively 75-minute conversation and discussion series. The event are held on Saturdays , beginning at 12:00 Noon Eastern U.S. Time (UTC-4) and closing at 1:15 PM. Tickets are $10 and proceeds benefit the BANR Foundation’s charitable projects.
The first half of each event consists of a presentation. The latter half of the program we invite you to participate in optional small group discussions with fellow attendees.
