What builds community?
It’s a question that’s been asked for centuries, with millions spent on research and incentives, community-building exercises and psychoanalysis. Which sometimes help and sometimes don’t. Getting people to willfully interact with one another and build relationships instead of “doing their own thing” in this day and age is getting harder and harder. Technology distracts us and gives us the ability to go through our daily routines in isolation.
We don’t have a formula for creating community. But sometimes you just need
a bunch of people
with a bunch of chips
and only one bowl of salsa.
