Together, we can create a successful, lively, significant community which is more sustainable and affordable.

The Northwest Intentional Communities Association was formed by a coalition of intentional communities in 1992. We were involved in the 1993 FIC Celebration of Communities gatherings and have held summer gatherings ever since. We recently shifted from a membership-based to a donor-based organization- events we are currently involved in either organizing or sponsoring we hope reflect that approach and the important role both community and intention play in our global future.
