Workshop/Activity Application

Think you have a great idea for a Make a Difference Soulshine workshop or activity? We want to hear from you!  Application for 2017 workshops coming soon…Stay Tuned!

We have listed some key definitions here for you to fill out this application as informative as possible. Thanks for your interest in joining Make a Difference!

The stage in the Soulshine Tent is a full size performance stage with full PA system. This stage is often used for musician sets, large and loud workshops, and activities that contain more than 30 people in the audience.

The Soulshine Workshop Tent is hosted by Summer Camp sponsors ENO. This tent sits to the southwest of the Soulshine Tent. With a small PA system and an intimate comfortable space, this tent is best utilized for activities with 30 people or less.

Do you have hands on demonstrations or skill share to offer? There are a limited number of opportunities to host a Soulshine Table space. Organizations whom are chosen to participate must commit to activities and engagement all weekend (Thursday through Sunday from 10am-7pm). Do you have a creative concept to offer Summer Camp patrons? Only applications that illustrate active, maker/DIY, tactile, or hands-on generated demonstrations will be considered. (Prop-related and participant driven involvement is a plus.)

The Permaculture Corner is a installation rich demonstration area with interactive demonstrations on gardening, alternative growing methods, and how to build access to more locally grown food. The area consists of multiple organizations offering a variety of techniques and information on local food in an informal setting, allowing participants to casually visit at their leisure. The installations of the Permaculture Corner educate festival patrons about the benefits and possibilities of sustainable agriculture and gardening in the urban setting. Post-Festival, the Permaculture Corner installations will be gifted to a civic and educational organization in neighboring communities to enhance an existing community garden or strengthen the development of a new space. This is an opportunity to provide infrastructure that supports the local food movement.

There are also permaculture associated workshops that range from 30 to 60 minutes with detailed overviews on various food and sustainability related topics. Are you working with stakeholders and organizations in your community? Do you have examples of alternative gardening methods or new growing mediums? Do you have designs that can help local food movements by applying common found materials in a creative way? Submit an application to Join Us!

**Permaculture is the science of applied ecological design that explicitly supports the care of the earth, the care of people and redistributes surplus. It is fundamentally based in abundance. Through working with nature, rather than against, permaculture allows us to creatively redesign our environment and behaviors in a world of less energy and resource needs by building individual and community sovereignty. It is also really fun!
