With support from the University of Minnesota Extension, the Shared Gifting Circle Simulation will be an active and fun learning experience readying community partners, the Network, and others for a true shared gifting event.
There are two ways to participate in the Simulation. Participants can join as pseudo fund seekers or as observers. During the simulation fund seekers will develop a mock community project idea that supports a shift in power within the food system. Fund seekers will actively share their community project idea, listen to other ideas, and gift "money" during the simulation. Observers will actively listen and learn throughout the simulation process and will reflect what they've learned at the end of the shared gifting circle. Limited spots available.
