August 10 & 11, 2012
A decade. That is how long Jesus Radicals has been gathering people together in locations across the U.S. to explore the intersections of radical Christian faith and anarchist politics. This year, we will meet again on August 10-11 at Area 15 in Charlotte, NC. We hope you will join in a joyful time of reflecting on where we are going, celebrating where we have been, and inspiring one another to live into and live out God’s in-breaking kin/g/dom.
Registration is now open for the 10th annual Jesus Radicals gathering. Organizers are in the process of planning two-full days (instead of the usual day-and-a-half) of presentations, workshops, skill-shares and networking opportunities. An initial block schedule (PDF) is available to provide an overview of the weekend. We hope to start posting more details on speakers, sessions and activities at www.jesusradicals.com/conference in the upcoming weeks.
Tenting will be the primary housing option this year, thanks to the half-acre grassy field at Area 15. Indoor floor space is also available but less abundant. Register soon if you plan to attend and need a place to stay. Activists of all kinds will be flocking to Charlotte for resistance to the Democratic National Convention and space city-wide will likely be limited.
The comments section on the ride board is dedicated space for those trying to car/van/bus-pool themselves over to the gathering. If you need a ride or can give a ride, that is the place to let people know.
Meet the organizers
This year, the gathering team includes three core-organizers and working groups consisting of past participants and locals from the co-hosting community. We hope this new structure will allow more hands and voices to shape the gathering. Find out who is doing what in the organizers section.
