Communication between lightning components in App Builder

Hi guys,

I am doing analysis concerning the feasibility of using lightning components within the partner community builder. My client wants to get some questions answered before moving on with the implementation.

I have set up a few custom components and have added them to the community builder with no issues. But i have hit a brick wall and I am hoping that there is a way around this.

Is there a way for components to communicate with each other within an envoronment like the community builder? Imagine a situation where a component can trigger an event that will be handled by other components. This is very important for navigational purposes. If applications were allowed within the community builder, wrapping the components in an application and using the an application event would be an option.

Any ideas on how to proceed here? Thanks
