Giftival Invites Your Gift

This coming October, a remarkable gathering will be meeting in Istanbul---Giftival. Attending will be a global citizenry of activists, film makers, thinkers, and teachers, who share a common bond: they are living and acting out of gift. Within their communities, workplaces, and projects, they are quietly part of a global shift that encompasses gift.

There is a growing consciousness, as we are witnessing in Turkey, of gift’s capacity to bringing enhanced meaning and possibility. Giftival will be part of this story.

Why Giftival?

It is time....

---to celebrate the work, successes, and efforts in our gift communities;

---to share our discoveries, and challenges; and

---to address the many questions on how gift can become more present in our conversations, work, and change

---to tap into the amazing change happening in Turkey of which gift is most present

We are sensing that it is a crucial time to bring together visionaries and practitioners of the new economy in a peer-to-peer, playful, collective inquiry to share our ideas, experiments, good practices and burning questions.

What if we deeply listened and inquired into the emerging consciousness around money, finance and economics together?  

We believe that because of the commitment, experience, perspectives, and energy of this gift gathering, there will be exciting emergence of insights and possibilities on gift’s place in our communities and our world.

How can you help?

We invite your gift.

There is small group of individuals (link to names) who are committed to attending Giftival, but will need travel assistance (flights, rail, taxi). Your gift will enable these individuals to attend. You have two options:

--Make a cash gift

--Gift your frequent flier miles (link how to)

Our thanks....

Everyone in the Giftival community extends our thanks to you. In our gratitude we will send you a video that will share a piece of Giftival’s events and a comprehensive paper detailing the four day event.

We believe this is the first of a three year series of Gifitival. Your gift not only brings tangible support to our guests, but it indicates an active interest in this event and the gift. We welcome you in this special and unique community.
