Smokebrush Foundation for the Arts is offering five scholarships to the 'Nets and Networks' Community Built Association Conference, hosted by Concrete Couch.

The scholarships are a memorial to Denver Wolf, a dear friend and volunteer of Concrete Couch.

Help honor Denver's memory and share skills and knowledge about how to mobilize your community to improve our world.



2016 Conference and Bootcamp



Join us as we explore connections and community!

NETS help us catch good things, and let other things pass through. They also are, literally, a weaving of different strands. A net needs to be sized correctly...too small, and you cannot catch a lot, and too big and it is unwieldy to use. Like nets, networks catch good things, and help to weave communities together.



Conference: Every 2 years CBA people gather somewhere in the USA, for  3 days of full-on engagement, presentations, and hands-on projects. Conference goers gather and share skills, strengthen old connections, make new connections, and increase their ability to "catch good things".  It is a venue to enjoy old friends, make new BFFs, and get energized about what we do in the world. Participants will meet at various locations around Colorado Springs, with the center of operations at the Penrose Library in downtown Colorado Springs.

The Bootcamp: Initiated in 2014, the Bootcamp kicks off 5 days in advance of the conference, and is designed for emerging community-built professionals, and offers tons of growth, 13 hour days, and FUNFUNFUN. Bootcampers will cook together, learn together, and rub elbows with experienced practitioners of the community-built world. Bootcampers will help facilitate many aspects of the conference, and will gain many new skills. The Bootcamp will be centered at the Manitou Art Center in downtown Manitou Springs.
