The “Roving Listener” offers us a seat at a living room concert with a most interesting guest list. The event is small, but even through the electronic tubes it is plain to see that the connections are powerful.
The Learning Tree is an association of neighbors in Indianapolis, that specializes in Asset Based Community Development, learning and education that improves the quality of lives of people, communities, schools and businesses. We help gather people and listen to each other. We listen and share life stories. We dare to see the abundance of gifts and talents in “irrelevant” places where there appears to be “nothing.” This evening house concert provided an opportunity for people from the neighborhood, and funding organizations, to connect their gifts through music, food, conversation, and friendship.
