Black Box Sessions are small, quarterly gatherings of Plywood People where we explore a topic as a community, learn from local voices and expand our thinking and understanding about a subject. Enjoy a space for community and growth in your perspective on topics that shape our work for social good.

We’d love to see you there.

This is the power of gathering: it inspires us to be:
more hopeful,
more joyful,
more thoughtful.
In a word, more alive.
