The Woodstock festival was “3 days of Peace & Music” in 1969, but its impact has been felt by generations. At the final Vibrations event, former editor-in-chief of Out Magazine and founder of One Grand Book, Aaron Hicklin curates a panel of authors, historians, changemakers and attendees share Woodstock memories and trace contemporary movements from their origins in the 1960s.
A “People’s Supper” - a dinner with tables of facilitated conversation, will follow. The dinner’s emphasis will be intergenerational storytelling and instilling ideals of kindness and civility. The People’s Supper has hosted over nine hundred dinners across the United States. Their methodology aims to repair the breach in our interpersonal relationships across political, ideological, and identity differences, leading to more civil discourse. Through loosely facilitated conversations over dinner, the People’s Supper builds a space to share meaningful stories, good food, and a sense of community while building understanding and trust.
This is part of the series. Vibrations launches in 2019 with eight unforgettable events bringing together change-makers, artists, and influencers to open conversations, inspire thinking and awaken purpose. Emphasizing the value of the arts and civic engagement, Vibrations brings the legacy of the past into conversation with the movements of today.
