After the Tatamagouche Free School some of us thought that we could use a workshop on how to give a workshop. If our workshop-giving skills were more effective, we’d have a better time sharing our numerous talents, interests and skills in a way that doesn’t replicate the power relations too-often present in our normal learning environments. Moreover, if more of us felt qualified to lead workshops for our neighbours, we might continue to grow culture of sharing. In this workshop we’ll talk about what makes a good workshop, and what makes a bad workshop, and we’ll brainstorm ideas for new workshops and structures for what those workshops might look like. Bring your memories from past workshops and ideas for future workshops. We are pleased to be able to facilitate your participation by offering complimentary bus tickets and childcare reimbursement. Bus tickets will be available at the event. If you would like to access the childcare fund ($15/h), please email tradeschoolhalifax@gmail.com before the day of the event.
