GATHER with Darci Adam

Expression as an Intermodal Healing Tool

GATHER is a community of diverse changemakers coming together on a consistent basis to learn, unlearn, heal, and grow, and a digital storytelling platform that tracks these raw, real, and authentic conversations and tells the story of the wisdom gathered for a purpose throughout this individual and collective journey of expansion.
