Calendar of Events
The first part of the week, students will focus on intensive poetry workshops and craft classes, producing three new poems a day. The second part of the week, students will take their poems and choose between Sound Sculpture/ Music, Art, or Live Performance Lab as a way to "publish" or perform their written work in another art form. The week will be an exercise in poetic production, experimentation, and collaboration with words, art, music, dance, performance, other students, and professional artists and poets. The week will culminate in a performance by students of their new works on Friday afternoon, July 13.

Using the amazing power of video games, children ages 10-15 years old will learn better communication, team-building, and leadership skills. As well as playing award-winning video games that are conducive to learning these valuable abilities, they will also learn about video game history from arcade to console to pc, and why it’s important for their next objective, which is working as a team to build a basic video game they can hack and tinker with long after the class ends. The camp runs from Monday-Friday 12-5pm, July 9th- July 20th. Must register by July 1st.More info at www.allhandsactive.com

Learn skills for resilient, low-energy living. This day-long ReSkilling Festival will focus on hands-on skills, which may include sessions such as bread-making, low-emission wood burning, container gardening, creating a root cellar, natural dyeing and spinning, and raising chickens! Part of the Transition Towns movement, the concept of reskilling is about preparing for our low-energy future by acquiring new skills related to what we eat, wear, use, and live in. As Transition Towns founder Rob Hopkins points out, “We no longer have many of the basic skills our grandparents took for granted.”Reskilling means providing for ourselves and our communities by growing, preserving, creating, building, and teaching.”Free admission. Materials fees apply for some sessions. Registration starts at 9:30am the day of the Festival at Rudolf Steiner.
