Senior Cohousing Weekend Intensive
Senior Cohousing Weekend Intensive
We invite you to this intimate gathering of people who are serious about creating their own senior cohousing communities. Learn how to get your project off the ground from experts and tour Quimper Village, a new senior cohousing community in Port Townsend, WA.
This weekend will be filled with inspiration as those who have created successful communities share their process with future cohousers. Participants will be able to brainstorm with each other in a small group setting.
Take away essential tools that will move your project forward! Learn, look, do!
Are you serious about living in Senior Cohousing? Are you ready to take the next steps? You won’t want to miss the 2018 Senior Cohousing Intensive in Bainbridge, WA on June 15 – 17.
The weekend intensive will be a weekend filled with learning, looking, and listening. We will kick things off with a warm welcome to Bainbridge Island on Friday night. This is your chance to meet other participants and your hosts.
On Saturday, participants will travel to Port Townsend where they will visit Quimper Village! This is your chance to meet members of a new cohousing community and talk to them about their experience living in a safe, supportive, and inspiring neighborhood they helped create!
Sunday, participants will spend the day at Office Xpats Coworking and Conference Center on Bainbridge Island, gaining inspiration and tools from those who have created cohousing before. Sunday will include:
1. What we did, how we did it, and what we’d do differently (lessons learned) and a little bit about why we did it. We’re not just making real estate here! And was it worth it? Moderated by Quimper Village residents;
2. If we (Quimper Village and/or Chuck Durrett) were to come to your town, what we’d do to move you into senior cohousing as soon as possible, moderated by cohousing architect Charles Durrett with Quimper Village residents.
This event is for those ready to become residents of their own state-of-the-art senior cohousing community. We are limiting entry to 20 motivated people, offering participants a small group setting where their voices can be heard. Those who attend will come away from this weekend inspired and equipped with the tools to move forward with their own projects.
Join us if your vision is to live in a senior cohousing community in the near future. What are you waiting for? Sign up today and watch your cohousing dreams become reality.
The Seattle area is filled with adventure, good food, and great sites! From Washington’s Olympic Peninsula to the Space Needle and Chihuly Museum, you’ll certainly want to take an extended vacation before and/or after the Senior Cohousing Intensive to see all that the area has to offer.
