Celebration, fundraiser + free lunch!

FREE! International Day of InterPlay—SF Bay Area

Celebrating 30 years of InterPlay
Phil Porter, Cynthia Winton-Henry, and Kelsey Blackwell

Oakland, CA

Saturday, Oct 26, 2019 • 12 noon – 3 pm


From Saturday, October 19-26, 2019, InterPlayers from around the world will be gathering in local groups to engage in party and play to support movement and change all over the place!

The San Francisco Bay Area InterPlay crowd will gather at InterPlayce from noon until 3:00 pm on Saturday, October 26, 2019, for a free lunch and to play and hear inspiring stories about how InterPlay leaders are embodying life, creativity, community, awareness and hope all over the place—across the US and in other parts of the world.

We will lift up our commitment to Millennial inspiration, bodywise leadership, joyous eldering, and racial equity and transformation. We’ll honor some wonderful leaders both in and around InterPlay communities with “Spirit of InterPlay” awards.

This event will be part of a year-long celebration of InterPlay's 30th year! We'll be dreaming about the next thirty.

And yes, we'll invite everyone to contribute and, of course, eat, drink and play.

Come experience the InterPlay movement, at the headwaters of social change, where birthright practices bring us into community and creativity in the best way possible!
