Slow Living Summit Returns To Brattleboro
The annual Slow Living Summit kicks off on June 4 in Brattleboro, and this year there will be a new emphasis on collaborations between speakers and artists.
The artistic director of the summit, Linda McInerny, says the Slow Living concept can be traced back to the Slow Food and Slow Money movements, with the notion of living "sustainably, holistically and with a respectful relationship with the earth."
This year's summit features a deliberate attempt to more fully integrate the arts into the presentations, so that, for example, a guitar accompaniment might replace a PowerPoint presentation.
The three-day event will culminate with the annual Strolling Of The Heifer's Parade on Saturday.
