Welcome to SpanThatWorld.com! The online home of the District Fellows Movement, the 16-20 age group of the cooperative children and young people's charity The Woodcraft Folk.
Volunteers wanted at a new festival on 31st August to 2nd September
Hello Woodcraft folk!
Small Is Festival 2012 is a collaborative attempt at creating a festival from the bottom up: And we want your help!
We believe in the concept of Small Is Beautiful and that’s exactly what this festival’s all about. From the the 31st Aug to 2nd Sept 2012, people will come from all over the world to celebrate and explore the smaller and more beautiful things in life in all their quirky and culturally diverse splendour!
The Small Is Festival is a celebration, exploration and evolution of “Small Is Beautiful” the seminal work of E.F. Schumacher. A beautiful yet significant weekend, packed full of inspiring debates, enthralling workshops, entertaining games and activities, fantastic food and music; all set in a stunning countryside location.
This year’s theme is Power To The People and will explore the ideas of how we meet the world’s growing energy demand; the problem of energy poverty both at home and abroad; technology vs ownership; creating social change from the bottom up and much more.
We are offering the Woodcraft Folk a fantastic opportunity to get involved in helping organise a part of this year’s festival! You have the chance to create a fun filled, activity based area on a beautiful part of the site which has lots of trees and grass and space to get creative! We’d love it if you could focus your activities on children and young people with the theme of youth empowerment and sustainability! We already have a couple of people who have come forward to offer their services, such as Catalyst – a fantastic program for 16-25 year old’s helping tool them up to make the changes they want to see happen in the world. Apart from that you have pretty much free reign.
If you’re interested in getting involved or have any questions email Gideon (firstname.lastname@example.org). There’s going to be a kick off meeting in London soon, maybe on the 2nd July, so get in touch!
