Workshop weekend 1:
“The New World”
This weekend will be our first contact with the hunter-gatherer lifestyle, worldview and relationship with the environment.
In what ways does the world look different when we take a hunter-gatherer point of view? What do we find? Something useful, something to eat, something to explore, something to avoid? What kind of traces do we find in the area and who left them? What kind of paths do we ourselves trace there? What kinds of places are along them – places to gather food and materials, look-out points, landmarks, camping grounds, holy places? What human and non-human forces are at work in the area? Who are we when we are in a different relationship with the environment and each other?
You can participate in either day or both.
Participation is free. If you wish, you can pay a voluntary contribution of the sum of your choosing through this link.
Sat 23 April 2022 at 12-17
Sun 24 April 2022 at 12-17 Helsinki time (UTC+3)
12-13 meeting by Zoom
13-16 in our own environment
16-17 we return to Zoom
When signing up, we ask for your phone number and email address so we can notify you of any changes or additional information (such as how we adjust to the weather) and you will receive the phone number to reach the workshop organiser on Saturday if needed.
You can listen to the previous stories of the Hunter-gatherers. At least read or listen to the Story of Creation.
By participating, you agree to abide by these terms.
You can read about hunter-gatherers for example here if you want.
The main language is Finnish, but the workshop can be conducted multilingually, with interpretation between Finnish and English as needed.
We will be outside. Wear clothes you are comfortable spending the day outdoors, moving around in. In bad weather we will take advantage of shelter where we find it, but if it looks like rain, it might be a good idea to bring rainwear.
Bring a snack if you need. We will try to find food, but probably can’t rely on our hunter-gatherer skills quite yet…
We start by Zoom, then each will explore their own environment outdoors, and finally we will return to Zoom to tell the stories of our experiences. You can choose any environment close to you that interests you, preferably urban, but it can also be rural or natural.
