Lodging & Transportation


ResilienceCon 2021 will be held April 11-13, 2021. Online options will be available for presenters and attendees. Public health guidance permitting, we also hope to be able to meet in-person for a limited number of presenters and attendees. 

The Scarritt-Bennett Center offers an exceptionally beautiful and serene environment right in the heart of downtown Nashville.  The campus is a combination of historic buildings (listed on the National Register of Historic Places) and tree-lined green spaces.  The Scarritt-Bennett Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to social justice, and we are supporting many strengths-based initiatives by supporting the Center.  We hope the space will promote ResilienceCon goals by providing space (literally) for attendees to reflect on their roles as researchers and practitioners.

Scarritt-Bennett, near Vanderbilt University, is within easy walking distance of restaurants and shops in the vibrant West End and Midtown areas.  It is a short drive to Broadway music venues.

Housing is available on-site that is consistent with their mission to provide a place for mindfulness and spiritual reflection.  Like many retreat centers, the housing is simple and modest (no televisions in rooms and every two rooms share a bath).  We invite you to use the opportunity of the meeting to explore mindfulness in these surroundings and at least partially unplug.  We believe that a less distracting setting will foster collaboration and connection.
