Hello I am looking for a word that would best be used as an exchange of knowledge or teachings within a community. Is there a word or phrase that would best sum up a group of people who are sharing their knowledge or talents to others?

    You're going to have to show some research for this and explain why simple words like teachers (use a thesaurus) don't meet your need. – Canis Lupus Feb 26 '15 at 17:43
  • "Educators" is the term I would use. – Hot Licks Feb 26 '15 at 17:56
