From the Edmonton Resilience Festival website:

Mission Statement:

The Edmonton Resilience Festival aims to strengthen community resilience through skill-sharing workshops and other events, inspiring participants to help create a sustainable, creative and promising future. The festival will also help to restore a sense of community that is often lost in cities experiencing rapid development and population growth. By bringing together diverse participants and creating opportunities for learning, sharing and connecting, we hope to expand our horizons, our skill sets and our community networks.

What can we expect?

The inaugural Edmonton Resilience Festival will run February 7 and 8, 2015, at the beautiful Boyle Street Plaza in downtown Edmonton. We  have a mix of hands-on practical workshops, guidedConversation Cafés, art and social events, and a fair showcasing the work of community organizations called the Community Connections Fair.
