Time for the Re-Skilling Festival!

A project of many Transition Initiatives around the globe is to recover lost skills — things that almost everybody once knew how to do but which are now fading into obscurity. We’re so lucky to have the Ann Arbor ReSkilling Festival right next door to our community twice per year.

Date: Sunday, July 15th.
Location: Rudolf Steiner High School, 2230 Pontiac Trail Rd., Ann Arbor
Time: 10am-5pm (doors open at 9:30am)
Admission: Free (some sessions have small material fees)

Sessions are as diverse as fire-starting, perspective drawing, gardening 101, co-counseling, bread-making, origami, and much more! The workshop schedule was just posted:

After this event, two organizers (sadly) need to step away from organizing. With the future of the festival in the balance, we will be hosting an important conversation from 4-5pm in the commons. This conversation is open to the entire community, and we hope it will advance the possibility that the festival continues into the future.

See you there!
