Come to the mountains of east Tennessee and spend one of the best starts to your summer ever with Highlander staff and people from around the country at W-7.8, our 8th Wild & Wacky, Witty & Wonderful Workshop Work Week, May 31-June 4, 2016. Starts 6:00 pm on Tuesday, May 31, and concludes with lunch at noon on Saturday, June 4.
SOCIAL CHANGE WORK: Spend half of your day in those renowned rocking chairs engaging on the idea of Highlander – workshops on popular education, organizing, movement building, & the history of social change and what all that can mean in your organizing and community work today.
WORK TEAMS: Spend another part of your day in service to the place of Highlander. As part of
a team – and in a praxis that continues learning from each other through dialogue and educational
exchange – prune in the orchard, cultivate in the garden, clear a hiking trail, plant trees ‘on the hill’,
file in our library, or build a bench, for example. There are jobs for all levels of skill and ability.
EVENINGS: As the sun prepares to set, we continue the fun. In the evenings, we’ll sing, share stories
around a fire, and square dance with a caller and live band (lessons provided).
DETAILS/COST: It’s a proven good ol’ Highlander throw-down that starts with supper at 6:00 pm on Tuesday, May 31, and concludes with lunch at noon on Saturday, June 4. Sliding scale $400-700. Some partial scholarships available and the scholarship form is within the application. Please complete an application form before paying.
