Think you have a great idea for a Soulshine Experience workshop or activity? We want to hear from you! Over the years we have hosted everything from instrument making to biodiesel manufacturing, and human powered energy to artistic DIY techniques. Do you have a skill to share? What is your passion for life that others could benefit from? Submit an application to participate in this year’s workshops.
We have listed some key definitions here to guide your application process. Thanks for your interest in joining The Soulshine Experience to Make a Difference!
EXPERIENTIAL HANDS-ON WORKSHOP IN SOULOUNGE
The SOULounge is an interactive, but intimate and comfortable space inside the Soulshine Tent for community participation of workshops and demonstrations. This space is best utilized for activities involving 40 people or less that does not require a PA. This year we are looking for workshops that engage festival-goers in meaningful and creative activities. In past years we have hosted classes pertaining to healing arts, instruments built from recycled materials, and bio-fuel production methods.
EXPERIENTIAL HANDS-ON WORKSHOP AT SOULSHINE STAGE
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 40 people in the audience.
EXPERIENTIAL HANDS-ON WORKSHOP IN SOUL-FIELD
Some workshops are best suited for open air space, no tents, no covers, nothing but the sky and the air! For workshops hosted in the Soul-Field, there will be no PA or other amplifying system. This is likely best suited for small groups and an instructor with a booming voice, or for breakout groups.
BODY MOVEMENT WORKSHOP AT SOULSHINE STAGE
Let’s get moving! Share with us how you want us to stretch, shake, shimmy and embrace our bodies. If you want to host a meditation, yoga, body movement or similar workshop, this is the place for you. If you want to host a workshop on belly dancing, how to do the tootsie-roll or other dance class, this is also the place for you! With this kind of workshop, we prefer to have instructors use the stage and PA system to really reach all participants.
ON-GOING DEMONSTRATION WORKSHOPS; DAILY TABLE IN SOULSHINE TENT
Do you have hands-on demonstrations or skillshare to offer that are best suited for 1-4 people at a time? Do you like interacting with lots of people in a small conversational setting?! Set up a table in the Soulshine Tent to display and demonstrate your skill throughout the weekend. 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). 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.)
HANDS-ON ART WORKSHOPS
Murals, finger-painting, sculpting OH MY! Hands-on art workshops have been wonderfully creative over the years, from giant community murals, oversized coloring books, glass blowing workshops and more, we’ve had it all. Or have we? Let us know your creative outlet and how you want to share it with everyone else! (Unless you plan to host over 40 people to this workshop, plan to host it in the SOULounge where most art projects are created!)
INSTALLATIONS IN THE SOUL-FIELD
Do you have an educational or artistic installation that would be enjoyable the Summer Camp patrons? The Soul-Field evolves from year to year with engaging, interactive and thought-provoking design concepts. Submit an application to share your installation in the Soul-Field!
We think this is pretty self explanatory… so tell us your idea!
Did we miss something you want to share? Then share it!
