Do you have hundreds of friends on Facebook and yet find yourself wondering who your people really are? Radha Agrawal calls this “community confusion,” which she experienced when she moved to NYC. Her solution was to found Daybreaker, an international phenomenon where people get up at dawn to attend dance parties. In Belong: Find Your People, Create Community, and Live a More Connected Life, she breaks down the process of finding meaningful connections to your chosen tribe. Priya Parker, also an expert on connecting IRL, wrote The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why It Matters, to help people make the most of any gathering, whether for work or play. Parker draws on her experience as a facilitator at high-powered multi-day meetings, demonstrating creative ways to make meaningful, memorable, intentional gatherings. If you are looking to enhance your off-screen life, come attend this live event, hosted by Lisa Pierpont, Editor-in-Chief of Boston Common Magazine. Sponsored by Boston Common Magazine.
Note: As a special bonus, Radha Agrawal will kick off a morning dance party (note that this is not a Daybreaker event) at 9:30am at the outdoor stage in Copley Square. Music by Yanina Johnson.
