What is On the table?
On the Table is a one of a kind opportunity to bring people of diverse backgrounds together to have meaningful conversations about important topics to the community.
This community-wide initiative seeks to explore how the power of collaboration can make our community stronger, safer, and more dynamic. The goal is ambitious, but the desire is to create a movement that encourages each of us to do more – to contribute our time, talent, and ideas. The Community Foundation of Central Georgia will survey participants to determine what issues mattered most to them and the ideas that emerged from the day’s conversations. Participants will share their stories to help inspire others to make a difference.
Community Foundation of Central Georgia will also offer everyone who participated an opportunity to apply for mini-grants as seed money to help launch their ideas. The online application for mini-grants will be available after On the Table.
This initiative would not be possible without the generous funding of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
Organizations and individuals of all ages, walks of life, and socio-economic backgrounds are invited to sign up to host or join a conversation and make connections to support future collaborative action.
The host will guide the topics, issues, and ideas discussed during each On the Table conversation. Participants are encouraged to continue their discussions after On the Table.
On the Table, 2023 is back! We are offering both virtual and in person tables. Each table will either be virtual or in person following CDC Guidelines. For the virtual sessions, host will decide what streaming platform they will use. We are excited to offer both options!
Hosts will be able to use the platform to engage their attendees creatively. Our in person locations will be hosted throughout Middle Georgia. For our virtual sessions, attendees can connect from anywhere with a good Internet connection.
