The Ark Centre invites you to:

“The Courage to Reimagine; The Challenge of the Sacred Inclusion Narrative”

Date: Sunday 19 June 2022      Time: 1pm to 5pm
Location: The Ark Centre, 7 Cato St, Hawthorn East VIC 3123

A Modern Response to Neuro-Diversity by Ancient Traditions

In the beginning there was The Story….The Dance…The Vision.
It is through these articulations, our ancient narratives, that our communal visions of the universe were formed. The archetypes of how we view others and, more importantly , how we respond to life. In this case, specifically those on the Autism Spectrum and those with disabilities.

On the Sunday, 19 June 2022 we will gather as the storytellers, as the elders, as the clergy, as the educators, as the leaders of our diverse respective traditions at The Ark Centre in Hawthorn. Our task will be to reflect and reimagine our foundation narratives and to emerge with a vision of how to be more reciprocally inclusive in the manner in which we engage members our communities who are on the Autism Spectrum and who have disabilities.

This is a call out to the professional and lay leadership, statewide, to join us for an afternoon dedicated to initiating an open ended dialogue on how we can create a reciprocal inclusive templet with an eye on enriching the lives of all of those within our communities.

Who: Storytellers, Community Leaders, Clergy, Elders, and Educators
Special guest speakers, roundtable informal dialogue workshops and of course food.

Cost: There is a $40/person registration fee.

Double vaccinated event. Covid restrictions, at the time of event, apply.

This gathering is facilitated by The Kulanu Project of the United Jewish Education Board.
