Adelaide Reskilling Festival set for April 16!

Reskilling Festival is a chance for anyone who has any skills to share, and anyone who would like to learn, to get together, share practical skills, stories, ideas, resources and lunch.

The inaugural Reskilling Festival will take place at Glandore Community Centre, and the adjacent leafy park and community garden, on Saturday 16 April 2011.

Reskilling Festival can be whatever you want it to be. It is a self-organising event, so everyone is invited to contribute towards making it a success.  There are no spectators, only participants!

There is no cost to attend, and no-one is paid for participating.  The aim is for a completely money-free event.

Some activities that might happen at the festival (only if you make them) include:

skillshare workshops

seed swap table

potluck shared lunch

cob oven cooking

jam session (with musical instruments)

jam session (with fruit and preserving jars)

craft circle

skillshare workshops might include:

organic gardening, food fermentation, knitting, meeting facilitation, keeping chickens, fixing bikes, food foraging, improv theatre, kite making, co-operative games, homeschooling, self defence, wilderness survival, dancing, raw food diet, sewing, critical thinking, map reading, weather forecasting, seed saving, conflict resolution, drawing, ecological design, biodynamics, bush foods, soil testing, guerilla gardening, greywater, grafting.

None of this can happen unless you make it, so if you have a skill you would like to share, start getting organised!
