Workshop Proposals Due
Friday, October 13, 2017 to Aequitas
 
Festival Theme
Our theme this year is “Saturnalia”! 
 
What We’re Seeking  
Get creative! Your presentation doesn’t have to be “a workshop” – it can be a hands on activity, a group discussion, involve music, food, chanting, or dance, it can be a devotional rite for a particular deity(ies) or pantheon, or some other type of working of interest to Paganfolk and Witchkin – the only limits are your imagination. Friday night late night slots as well as all day Saturday are available particularly for devotionals of particular workings with deities. 
 
Format
Workshop time frame should fit within a 1 hour timespan (suggestion: plan 45 minutes of content and 15 min for Q&A). Participant attendee crowds range from 5-7 people for special interest topics, and up to 25+ for broad appeal topics.
