Groundswell's 5th Showcase Gala!

  • Groundswell Community Space 566 Powell Street Vancouver, BC, V6A 1G9 Canada

Groundswell's fifth cohort of budding entrepreneurs are ready to showcase their beautiful, authentic and compassionate ventures to the world!

Cohort V is a diverse group of individuals, yet their projects are inspired by common themes: connecting to a source, or 'going back to our roots' is explored through food education, creating living soil, and children's outdoor learning.  The importance of community connection for human wellbeing is cultivated through arts gatherings, storytelling, gaming events, dance and music.   This image for the Groundswell V Gala was created by their peers in Cohort 6, bringing all these significant themes together in a celebratory visual that represents these social entrepreneurs' passion and dedication to creating a livelihood that contributes meaningfully to their communities.

About

This group of fine young leaders are in the business of doing good, transforming how we think about the value of food, textiles, recreation, art, resources, storytelling, childcare, music... and soil!

For the last 6 months, the cohort has come together and found a community of support for values-oriented social enterprise.  They have grown immensely, together and as individuals, realizing their potential for reimagining how the economy works, and actually building the alternative.

We are excited to see the ecosystem of social enterprise that Groundswell alumni have been creating together with our greater community - you! - for the past 3 years growing with heart-centred entrepreneurs like the ones presenting tonight.

Come to see the future that we've been building together, and join us in the groundswell of change towards a more just, healthier, and happier social economy!
