Our Summerfest vision is to create a world where everyone’s needs matter. Our specific mission is to offer an intimate, family-oriented festival with Nonviolent Communication (NVC) as a core value. And our aims are to support the Summerfest community to develop tools for resolving conflict in your family, workplace and community.
Watch highlights of Summerfest 2019 in the video above, or check out what’s on in 2020 for an outline of how we make NVC the fabric of our event!
