Highlander Announces Our 2nd
Wild and Wonderful
Witty and Wacky
Workshop Work Week!!
October 8-12, 2009
“Transformative.” “Changed my life.” “What a powerful community we built.” “Do it again.”
These are just a few of the words from the 33 people who came to Highlander for W-7, our 1st Wild and Wacky, Witty and Wonderful Workshop Work Week. It was such a powerful time we are doing it again.
Come to the mountains of east Tennessee at the time of leaves turning and spend one of your best fall breaks ever with Highlander staff and people from around the country at W-7.2, our 2nd Wild and Wonderful, Witty and Wacky Workshop Work Week, October 8-12, 2009.
Spend your morning in the idea of Highlander, learning from each other and engaging in political discussions and workshops on popular education, organizing, movement building, and the history of social change.
Spend the afternoon in service to the place of Highlander. As part of a team, and in a way that continues your dialogues and educational exchanges, work in the fall harvest of apples, help in the garden, clear a trail, plant trees, paint, file, or build a bench, for example. There will be volunteer jobs for all levels of skill and physical ability.
In the evenings, sing, tell stories around a fire, and square dance with a caller and live band (lessons provided).
It’s a proven good old Highlander throw-down that will start with supper at 6:00 pm on Thursday, October 8, and conclude with lunch at noon on Monday, October 12th, the day Columbus didn’t discover America.
Cost: Sliding scale $350-500. Some partial scholarships available.
