ARC 2022: The Impact Renaissance
ARC or Annual Retreat and Convocation is Aspire Circle’s captive convening, originally conceived as a biennial event. Our aspiration continues to be to make it an annual even and hence we persist with the name ARC, albeit as an acronym, to evocate the arc of enlightened social leadership. As we also confer the “Fellowship” at this event to graduating Fellows, we integrate a Convocation with the same. ARC is a closed-door event, by invitation only, for Aspire Circle stakeholders- Fellows, Scholars, IFP Community Leaders, Members, Speakers, Staff & Office-bearers. One of its most important objective is to bring together our Fellows, from across cohorts, face to face, in spirit of Fellowship, with readings-based heart-and-soul Socratic dialogues. It is not open to guests or public.
To date, we have had two such physical events. Our first such event “ARC2015”, was held in Mumbai, at ISKCON’s Govardhan Eco Resort, with the theme- “Anubandh”. Subsequently, the second edition, ARC2018 was held in Delhi NCR, at Brahmkumari’s Om Shanti Om Retreat Centre in Pataudi, with the theme- “Impact Design”. In 2021, we hosted a virtual event due to the prevailing pandemic situation. Our ARC2021 theme was “The Pursuit of Purpose”.
In 2022, we meet again under the theme of “Impact Renaissance”. The 1.75 days event will start on Friday, 7 October evening @ 2 pm and end on Sunday 9 October afternoon @ 2 pm with a lunch. The venue, The School of Ancient Wisdom, is 20 minutes’ drive from Bengaluru Airport, a 10-acre eco-destination.
We believe that collectively, we must build ARC into a Forum which allows leaders from the social sector as well as key invited influencers (celebrities, sports personalities, government leaders, etc.) to come together to further build a national impact movement- in pursuit of enlightened social leadership. We welcome your participation in and support to ARC2022.
(Note: this is a closed-door event, by invitation only. Only registrations from Aspire Circle stakeholders- Fellows, Scholars, IFP Community Leaders, Members, Speakers, Staff & Office-bearers will be considered)
