Greetings dear Community
“People of our time are losing the power of celebration. Instead of celebrating we seek to be amused or entertained. Celebration is an active state, an act of expressing reverence or appreciation” - Abraham Joshua Heschel
We will be celebrating our 5th anniversary on 21 March! It’s a moment in time in which we get to honour the journeys we have shared, the stories we have heard and the people who have made the work we do possible. It’s a time in which we, as a team, remember where we started, acknowledge where we are today and get to dream and anticipate what’s still to come.
If you’re in our area on Thursday 19th March at 15h00, pop in and join us for tea and cake!
