Become a Sponsor for the 2019 Compassion Fest
The inaugural Compassion Fest was held in August 2018 and we were humbled by how the community welcomed and embraced the event. We had over 50 volunteers coming from as far away as Eagle and Grand Junction and we estimate that more than 400 people attended. Building on the momentum from the 2018 Fest we are starting to plan the 2019 Compassion Fest weekend, August 9tt –11th, at the Third Street Center in Carbondale, Colorado.
The program will include a film festival (the Compassion Film Fest) offering inspiring feature-length and short films from both professional and student filmmakers; excellent speakers and workshops; and offer more tools, resources and opportunities to practice compassion in our own lives and beyond. In addition, we will be including programming for different age groups and cultures: more opportunities for attendees to connect to efforts meaningful to them: and ways for local businesses to highlight compassionate actions their organizations are taking in the world. Looking forward, we will be investigating how we can extend Compassion Fest to other communities in the future.
