Target Groups[edit]

Wording of call-out[edit]

To be decided


Nobody wants to exclude young people or their parents, but if kids are disrupting the workshop, their parents need to take them out of the space. If several parents are present, one of them could volunteer to facilitate a kids' space. Nobody present at the meeting was planning on bringing kids, so nobody was allocated to this role.

Date & location[edit]

  • 11-13 June 2010
  • Highbury farm - Redbrook - Wye Valley

  • any alternatives? discussed and discounted 2


  • £31 per person, including food and camping
  • Deposit must be paid in advance to book a place

Maximum participants: 60


We agreed that everyone who comes to the event should expect to contribute work during the event, but we need some coordinators to make sure that delegation happens when spontaneity falls short.
