Please join NELC Fellow, Marta Ceroni, and John de Graaf, on October 8 at 6pm at the Ava Gallery, Lebanon, NH (come at 5:30PM if you want to enjoy some light refreshments) for a night of conversation in which John presents his latest movie “Redefining Prosperity: The Gold Rushes of Nevada City” a story of a community that built a different future for themselves amidst polarization and pressures from an extractive economy. The film is part of a larger campaign that John is working on to reclaim the beauty of the American wilderness as a something that belongs to all and creates connection instead of polarization.
John de Graaf is a filmmaker and new economy activist. If you’ve followed John’s work through the years, you might have seen that he has worked on a campaign to take back your time i.e. work less, share work with others, and live happier. He is the author of Affluenza about the American addiction to consumption.
