If you've never been to a festival, it's the time of year to start planning your season out. Whether you make it to just one festival, or you make it to a bunch like we do, it's good to know what you're getting into.
This year, Three Cranes Grove, ADF, is picking up the mantle and hosting the Summerland Gathering near Yellow Springs, Ohio, on August 13-16, 2020. If you've been riding along with us for a while, you'll know that we're big on consent, inclusivity, and cooperative work. So, before we put up any registration pages, we began developing a code of conduct for organizers, presenters, and participants.
But of course, we have to build it first!
After our first in-person meeting to work out the Code of Conduct, Rev. Avende and Rev. Dangler chatted about the process the Grove is going through, how it felt to engage, and what it's like to workshop a code like this.
We're not done, but our start was promising, and we thought there was plenty of value in sharing our conversation.
There are a few festivals mentioned in the introduction, so here are their links:
- ConVocation (Detroit, MI) - Feb. 20-23, 2020
- Pagan Fire Seminars (Columbus, OH) - April 4, 2020
