Learning Circle: Applying Circle Process in Domestic Violence Organizations
We will spend two days understanding the history, philosophy, and practice of circles in various community contexts. Circles is an indigenous community governance practice used to bring people together to build community, problem solve, celebrate accomplishments and make decisions. Its applications are numerous across the private, public and non-profit sector. In communities, circles are useful to build cross-sector coalitions, conduct needs assessments, develop stretegic and to strengthen Communities of Color. In organizations, circles are used to strengthen management processes, build learning communities, implement restorative justice initiatives, and engage constituencies. The circle process is a gift conserved throughout centuries of genocide and cultural survival only then to be gifted to the world so we can learn our way back to being Whole. We are most grateful to our teachers from various indigenous communities for teaching us this process such as Harold Gatensby of the Tlingit people in the Yukon territories and John Mohawk of the Seneca people who is now an Ancestor. We are grateful for the support, blessing and embrace given to us currently by Strong Oak Lefevbre and Jillene Joseph. We also honor the gift of this process by teachers such as Donna Bivens, Gwen Rhivers, and Dr. Carolyn Boyes-Watson, sisters who walk with us along this journey. May we honor the gift you have given us in the effort to help us remember that we can build the communities of our choosing even in the face of ongoing oppression. This event is being put together through a collaboration with local and regional domestic violence programs and is being sponsored by HarborCOV, Transition House, Casa Myrna and the Cambridge YWCA.

Maybe it was during an emergency situation or caused by a force of nature... or perhaps you were in a part of the world where communication services are expensive, hard to find or just not available...or maybe you are you are frustrated with how dependent you are on Verizon, AT&T, Starbucks Wifi, and the like. If any of these descriptions applies to you, and you would like to start building your skills and knowledge of solutions, then the Wind Farm's Internet Offline Simulation day is for you. This free workshop will include hands-on trainings and talks on both existing and under development apps and services that you can use on your own devices to connect with people around you directly without using the Internet. We'll be out on the Harvard campus, using these tools to practice and role-play a variety of situations and events. Through playing games and hands-on learning, we will share ideas about how to build more types of nearby networks in more places, used and operated by more people and communities. Wind Farm's Internet Offline Simulation is a fun and interactive day for people of all ages and backgrounds. The only requirement is an open mind and optimistic view of what might be possible. You can be part of helping shape and design what we are calling "Wind", the offline counterpart to the Web, that is free, plentiful and unblockable. Donuts, coffee, water and snacks will be provided, and there are many food options on campus nearby. Our last event, was held at Eyebeam NYC in 2014, and was covered by the Verge: Learn more and join the discussion about Wind Farm at:

PlaySpace: Messy Sensory Activity Painting
Wednesday, May 20, 2015 - 10:00am to 4:00pm






Touch the paint with your fingers. Try using a brush. Explore shapes, colors and textures. Stand up. Sit down. Paint on the window or on the floor and exercise different muscles.

In the Messy Sensory Area in PlaySpace, toddlers do the important work of exploring the world and themselves through hands-on activities. The area is perfect for toddlers to explore all kinds of sensory materials from paint to shaving cream, playdough and water. Activities are carefully designed to support toddlers curiosity and the development of fundamental skills. We use washable, non-toxic materials so everyone can enjoy the fun of making a mess!

Tips for doing Messy activities at Boston Children's Museum:

  • Follow your childs lead and feel free to visit the area multiple times. It could be your childs first time exploring paint or cornstarch. and it takes time to develop confidence and be comfortable.
  • We have smocks available for both children and grownups. Pack an extra shirt and pants for full-body exploration.
  • Talk to our experienced staff.We are available for tips and ideas to try at home.

The area may be closed briefly for cleaning in the middle of the day.
