Hollyhock Gathering

July 24 - 28, 2023

Change rarely comes in isolation, but instead is rooted in the resilience of community connectedness. The new Hollyhock Gathering invites us to refill our reservoirs, and drink deep from the well of innovation, joy, and renewal. 

This unique program is both exploration of the richness of our communities and a summer holiday. Convening cross-sections of program participants, presenters, and partners to learn and grow in the intersections of personal and social transformation.  We bring together a vibrant, diverse group of movers and shakers, social entrepreneurs, educators, healers, artists, and thinkers to explore social transformation and relational reciprocity.

Participants are invited to attend the Hollyhock Summer Fundraising Soiree, kindly hosted by Victoria and Ian Watson. The larger Hollyhock community will join us for drinks and appetizers followed by exceptional entertainment. There will be an invitation to help support Hollyhock’s work to build a fair just and inclusive future.

Operating on the principle that real creativity at Hollyhock gatherings happens over tea or while swimming in the Salish Sea, as well as in workshops. This event has a flexible structure with plenty of time for informal conversation, creative expression, and fun.

  • Morning plenary sessions feature dynamic, interactive presentations by social entrepreneurs, innovators, and artists from a variety of disciplines from the greater Hollyhock community
  • The afternoons are self-organized open space — participants share their work and ideas with each other in simultaneous sessions. Afternoons also afford time for swimming, hiking, kayaking, massage, creative arts, and the like.
  • In the evenings we do our very best to experience collective joy through dance, storytelling, play, an oyster barbecue, and connecting deeply with place

For those of you who’ve been to Hollyhock before, there will be familiarity. For those who are newly arrived you will find a warm welcome. For all of us who will be in attendance, there will be a wealth of opportunity–in the uncertainty of our collective happening–for us to recognize, reconnect, and remember our interdependence.


A detailed schedule will be available 1-2 weeks in advance of the program. View sample schedule here.
