Wild and Wonderful
Witty and Wacky
Workshop Work Week- Take 2
June 1- 5, 2010
“Transformative.” ”Changed my life.” “What a powerful community we built.” ”Definitely do it again.”
These are just a few of the words from the 33 people who came to Highlander’s first Wild and Wacky, Witty and Wonderful Workshop Work Week. It was such a powerful time we are taking their advice and doing it again.
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-7.2, our 2nd Wild and Wonderful, Witty and Wacky Workshop Work Week, June 1 – 5, 2010.
MORNINGS: Spend them in those renowned rocking chairs building on the idea of Highlander – workshops on popular education, organizing, movement building, and the history of social change and what all that can mean in your organizing and community work today.
AFTERNOONS: Spend the later hours of sunshine 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 will be volunteer jobs for all levels of skill and physical 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).
It’s a proven good ol’ Highlander throw-down that will start with supper at 6:00 pm on Tuesday, June 1, and conclude with lunch at noon on Saturday, June 5.
Cost: Sliding scale $350-500. Some partial scholarships available.

I just received your newsletter in the mail today, and I am so happy that you reached out to me!
I am interested in learning more about the Wild and Wonderful, Witty and Wacky Workshop Work Week Take 2. I read your information about the event, but I am still unsure about lodging and transportation. I will be coming in from Massachusetts, so any information you could provide me with regarding the program itself and the area in which the event will be held, would be wonderful!
