Intentionality & Connection

As we've been connecting with new people at the Meet & Greets and around the neighborhood, we've felt a strong sense of pride and excitement about what the future holds. Our city is full of wonderful, wise people. And we're thrilled to be able to partner with so many of the creatives in the area.

But we don't want to rush the process. We don't want to be so focused on a target deadline that we miss out on opportunities to reflect and carefully consider what might be born of patience. We live in a fast-paced world. Some days it feels like if rest isn't scheduled, it won't happen.

This is perhaps one of the main reasons we wanted to launch the Colley Community Center- to give people a chance (and a space) to pause, to acquire a new skill, to invest in themselves, and to maybe even learn about others. Communities don't form overnight; they take time.

As we enter into the next phase of our planning and begin making decisions about everything from furniture to workshop topics, we want to pause and think carefully about how each of these decisions will shape our organization.

We've landed on two words that we want to define the CCC: intentionality and connection. We believe these are both essential when it comes to building community, and so we want to prioritize them at every turn. We hope that in doing so, the CCC will be a space that encourages personal growth and fosters lasting relationships in equal measure.

With that in mind, we'll soon be updating you on our revised timeline. We'll be looking forward to a winter full of thoughtful preparation as we aim to have an amazing Spring launch event that will set the tone for our building to quickly become a fixture of flourishing for decades to come!
