I’m writing to invite you to an awesome event: Epic Skill Swap 2017! Epic Skill Swap is a participatory weekend festival where you can learn new skills, share the skills you have, and spend a couple days with an amazing group of people. Let’s use our knowledge and the knowledge of others to build the kind of world we want to see.

There are two weekends to choose from: May 26–29 and June 9–12. Cost: $40–$140 sliding scale, includes delicious meals and rustic accommodations. Location: Wilmot, NH. Register, check out the list of workshops, and learn more at Questions? Email the organizers at

Facebook: It helps a lot when you share or invite friends and RSVP to our Facebook events: Weekend A  and Weekend B. This is also a good place to ask questions or communicate with other swappers ahead of time.

Looking forward to two epic weekends!
