It’s been an amazing time here on the Community Center — through extreme adversity, difficulty and disruption we’ve seen hosts sharing stories, advice and laughs when providing great hospitality to guests.
This host community works so hard that it’s no wonder it can be difficult to keep track of all your incredible contributions.
Some of you may remember that we held our first Festival of Hospitality back in August 2019. We weren’t able to hold it last year for obvious reasons.
So, from August 23 - 26th, together we will see the return of our four-day hosting festival here in the Community Center!
The Community Center Festival of Hospitality is entirely online, full of great topics and fun conversation. You can revisit our first Festival by having a look here: Festival of Hospitality 2019
We do need your help, though, so we would like to invite you to get involved.
Here are two ways:
We would like you to record a 10-second video of yourself on your smartphone (or other device if you prefer). All videos will start with you saying “Hosting has taught me…”.
We will stitch all the videos together to make our very own community video, which we will share to close out the festival.
How this works:
If you want some inspiration, check out the 2019 video here: I love hosting
If you would like to create a topic to be included in the week, please comment below or contact me directly to discuss this further.
We are asking for a maximum of 750 words, which we will translate into all the languages we support here on the CC to share during the Festival. And let’s not skimp on those snaps, too!
We know you all have so much creativity to share, so can’t wait to see what we can all learn during the Festival week!
Thanks so much,
Quincy, Nick, Liv and Steph

I am fine, thanks and I hope that you are so
Really, during festival time, I am sure that I am going to be so busy with work. Because, during a week, I have to go to another city and returning on the same day. For that Quincy, this year, I really apologize for you, all my friends in the community, and all participants in this so interesting and respectful festival
To those of you who are lurking here in CC who haven't previously participated in the Festival of Hospitality, please do, it's a fun experience.
We look forward to you stepping up!!
Have fun and looking forward to seeing your stories.
