Yes! is presenting its 2014 Jam in Toronto, May 7-11, 2014: applications to participate due March 15.
The Jam is for those people committed to social change and a better world, interested in connecting with like-minded people, and/or need a pause from the grind to reflect and regroup.
But, what’s the Jam?
Think of when musicians get together to jam. They meet, experiment and play off of one another, and create beautiful new music. Now imagine instead of music, it was ideas and experiences being shared. Jams are open-ended and unscripted gatherings of 30 or so changemakers (ages ~18-40) who spend a week reflecting, sharing, building community, and creating new possibilities.
Each Jam is unique, but you can expect a blend of facilitated dialogue, reflection, play and movement, artistic expression, deep inquiry, games, music, and meaning-making.
