How to give a workshop (a workshop)
November 9, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm| Free
The Radical Imagination Project is pleased to be partnering with Trade School Halifax on a new collaboration: the TRADE FOR CHANGE workshop series, aimed at building skills and capacities among activists, movements and communities in Halifax.
All workshops are free and open to the public. Facilitators may request you offer some good or service in compensation for their efforts. Please pre-register at Trade School Halifax.
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 email@example.com before the day of the event.
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.
