workshop in action

Workshops

We encourage everyone to take part in leading peers in a workshop this year! With member-developed programming running all week, this is an excellent way to be more involved. The term “workshop” can imply class-structured or teacher-led events; however, at Solstice, workshops are all about engagement and skill-sharing. The goal here is for members to feel comfortable and empowered.

 

The Workshop Crew is committed to creating a welcoming space that comfortably nourishes the exchange of ideas to learn, share and grow. We provide a centrally located, large, dry, floor-matted dome for your use. During peak times, it is equipped with a mini PA-system including microphone, access to a projector, and speakers. If you need additional tools, we will do our best to accommodate you.

 

Outside of the workshop dome, there are numerous places to swap smarts. Workshops are hosted in the field, the Art Tent, by the pond, or wherever you feel inclined to meet! There’s no need to be shy. This is a very accepting and loving community of growth.

 

Check out Workshop boards through the week to see what ideas are shaping. As new members arrive, new workshops will be posted.

 

We want to acknowledge and recognize the social and economic accessibility issues that exist in and outside of Solstice and are working towards bringing people together across social barriers in order to create dialogue and awareness around these issues.

 

We recognize that people who experience structural oppression and marginalization have a lot to offer our community. People of colour, those recently arrived from other countries, people with disabilities, women, two-spirited and queer people, trans people, and other candidates who experience marginalization are strongly encouraged to self-identify.
