Last day to propose workshops for Epic Skill Swap April 14! (2013)

Dear everyone,

Just a loving reminder that the deadline to submit workshop proposals is April 14th! That’s coming right up on us. Have an idea of a skill to share? Interested in participating and want to cast your votes for workshops you’d love to attend? Scoot on over to, and add your idea and indicate your interest on proposed skills.

Just a lil’ taste of what’s already up there: yogurt making, basic household wiring, arts of the sailor, juggling, CPR, pipe soldering, life drawing, maps, suicide intervention, songwriting, and music theory. We’ll close the poll on April 14th, and try to have a schedule for you by April 30th.

Hooray for skills! Continue reading

Call for workshops: Epic Skill Swap 2013

Dearest everybodies,

Now that the 2013 Epic Skill Swap has a home (Camp Wilmot), we want to know what the Skill Swap schedule should contain this year! Because this event is 100% participatory, we need your workshop ideas.

  • What sort of knowledge do you have that will help us create the world that we want?

Please submit your ideas and vote on the workshops by March 31! Continue reading
