Wild and Wonderful, Witty and Wacky Workshop Work Week at Highlander

Posted by on April 6, 2009

Highlander Announces Our New
Wild and Wonderful
Witty and Wacky
Workshop Work Week!!
May 25-29, 2009

Start one of your best summers ever with Highlander staff and people from around the country at the premiere of Highlander’s new Wild and Wonderful, Witty and Wacky Workshop Work Week, May 25-29, 2009.

Spend your morning in the idea of Highlander, learning from each other, having political discussions, and participating in workshops on popular education, organizing, movement building, and the history of social change.

Spend the afternoon in service to the place of Highlander. As part of a team, help clear a trail, work in the garden, plant trees, paint a room, file in the office, or build a bench, for example. There will be volunteer jobs for all levels of skill and physical ability.

In the evenings, sing with Guy and Candie Carawan, tell stories over homemade ice cream, watch movement films under the stars, and square dance with a caller and live band (lessons provided).

It’s a good old Highlander throw-down that will start with supper at 6:00 pm on Monday, May 25, and conclude with lunch at noon on Friday, May 29th.

Cost: Sliding scale $350-500. Some partial scholarships available.
