On October 27th, come gather at a community well for The Great Turning, for an evening of nourishment, community, and celebration, with resident elder Joanna Macy and movement sirens Rising Appalachia, emcee’d by our school’s Director & Founder Lydia Violet Harutoonian.

School for the Great Turning invites you, our kin and supporters, including our students, teachers, mentors, family, friends, future allies, and ancestors to simultaneously resource in and sustain School for the Great Turning through its next year and beyond.

Joanna Macy, Rising Appalachia, and Lydia Violet welcome you to this evening of reflection, abundance, and song. We will hear from Joanna Macy on her insights about this moment we are living in, sing along to new tunes from Rising Appalachia, and Lydia Violet will share some of the most powerful moments of impact of SGT and the exciting plans we have for the year ahead.

If you would like to purchase a donation ticket but cannot attend live, not to worry! We will happily send out a recording of the event to you for your viewing pleasure, and are so grateful for your participation. Thank you again for your support!
