Cohousing as Art

Belfast Cohousing & Ecovillage is the featured "artist" for the month of July at the Belfast CoOp! Members have put together a show entitled "A Child's Day in Cohousing," a visual depiction of 24 hours in the life of a child reared in an intentional community. Such communities are designed so that generations mingle, grass replaces asphalt and neighbors watch out for each other's children as they roam the outdoors. Complementing this visual essay is a series of precocious photographic portraits of families in the Belfast Cohousing & Ecovillage by one of its youngest members, 7-year-old Pia McKim-Gibson.

Friday, July 1st is the official "opening" of the show, accompanied by the CoOp's free monthly wine tasting. It should be a fantastic event to meet and mingle, enjoy some tasty snacks and see cohousing from a child's point of view.

We hope you will join us!
