WORKSHOP & EVENT
Workshops and events are a great way to learn a new skill or be entertained – and, of course, to teach a skill and entertain!
Any skill or talent you are willing to share is your gift to the community. Whether you dance, make music, do yoga, sing opera, twirl nipple tassels, swing poi, meditate, play guitar, paint watercolours or practice tantra, your participation is encouraged, nay, required!
What do you want to do?
What kind of event do you want to run? Nowhere is created entirely by its participants, and that goes way beyond the Barrios that make up our temporary home. Whether you want to run a workshop to teach people new skills, put on a performance to entertain people, bring people together to create something unique and wonderful, or just have a party – the choice is yours.
Where to run your event
Many Barrios host events throughout the week. If you are staying with a Barrio, check with your Barrio-mates to make sure they’re happy with you scheduling an event there. Some Barrios will even allow you to hold events in their space if you’re not camping with them, have a look here.
If you are bringing an Art project to Nowhere and it’s interactive, or you want to run some workshops there or have a party – great!
Why constrain yourself to a physical location! Many events can run right across the Nowhere site. Think “Tutu Tuesday” … why constrain the glory of your tutu to a single location!
We have an amazing shared community structure, appropriately called the Middle of Nowhere, where many workshops are held. There’s room for it all… it just takes you! Some of our favourite traditions include the Miss Nowhere pageant, the Costume Camp fashion show, and the Nowhere closing ceremony, which brings everyone together on Sunday night for a shared meal. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
