In this summer of cancelled residentials you are invited to join a 2-weekend virtual workshop 7-16 August. The opening circle will be on Friday 7th with a re-opening circle on Friday 14th and closing circle on Sunday 16th. Most activities will be on the weekends but if people want to offer weekday events, sessions or support groups then that option will be a possibility. The workshop will consist of whatever is offered: sessions, themed coco workshops, here&now groups, dance, cabaret, shared walks, writing spaces... it all depends on your creativity and imagination!
Don't worry if you can only join one of the weekends, you won't be the only person in this position.
How does a virtual residential work?
The workshop is held together by a framework of Google Docs, Zoom and WhatsApp. There will be a 'main Zoom room' for circles, group events (e.g. cabaret) and other workshops. The timetable and noticeboard will be Google Docs that can be edited by any participant. There will also be a Google Doc for support groups - you can be allocated in advance to a random support group or you can create your own support group. There will be WhatsApp group for quick communication during the event. There will be an opening circle at the beginning of the workshop (and a re-opening circle on the second Friday) and a closing circle at the end but no daily circles because people are at home with different commitments. Instead, there will be a daily check-in for those who want it. If you have any questions, please ask!
