There’s Always Growth: A Hollyhock Documentary Premiere Watch Party & Fundraiser (Free, Online)

With Hollyhock Leadership Institute, Bill Weaver and Thomas Atum O'Kane, PhD

November 20, 2020

It’s been a year full of uncertainty and challenges for us all. We at Hollyhock are continuing to pivot to meet the emerging needs of today’s world. This year we had to cancel the majority of our 2020 programs – the closure deeply affected our organization, but it also revealed what is important and taught us how to stay resilient, creative, and hold true to our values.

Bill Weaver, a Hollyhock Sharegiver and producer of Media that Matters has captured us at Hollyhock as we reflect on COVID-19 challenges and look ahead to 2021 and beyond.

We invite you to join us for an interactive evening and the premiere of “There’s Always Growth,” a 20-minute Hollyhock documentary by Bill Weaver. We look forward to sharing our story and listening to yours. The event will include a showing of the film, activities facilitated by Thomas Atum O’Kane, PhD, and interactive discussion. Come away inspired with your own tools for resilience as we continue to creatively navigate the times ahead, staying true to what makes life meaningful.

This is a fundraising event open to all, please help spread the word! You may add a donation to your registration or donate on the day of the watch party. Your donation helps us to ensure that we will be able to continue serving our communities with impactful experiences that bring us closer to ourselves, each other, and nature. Thank you so much for your support.
