Good morning, sisters. Have you gotten your ticket yet? We are filling up. At this time, we are closing RV to new campers. RV section is full and closed. We encourage you to camp on the lovely beds that our dear trees have provided. Also, there are many campgrounds with services close to Wayland Farm. Thank you so much!
I'm sure you know her and if you do know her, you love her. If you don't know her, you will soon love her. I am so very pleased to say Thank you so much, Paloma Rosales, for agreeing to be our WOC coordinator.
As an artist and a drummer, I've been nurtured and influenced by some of the most amazing people on my life path. It's mostly lesbians and womyn of color (such gems!) who have shown me the value of inclusiveness, politics, courage, looking out for each other, speaking up even if I'm afraid, honoring our ancestors, celebrating, eat, cook and to be swept away in love. These things and so much more. Especially the rule that no one should leave here feeling bad. Where ever 'here' may be.
The Detroit Women's Coffeehouse, Festivals & W.O.C. at Michigan, fundraisers, potlucks, workshops and Womyn's Communities have fed me from a baby dyke to the crone I am today. Hence I'm happiest in a circle of womyn!
It's my honor to be the keeper of the W.O.C. tent for Michigan Framily Reunion, August 4-7, 2017. Womyn of color and friends are welcome to come in to visit, share stories, network, make music, drum, play a board game, share poetry, offer a spontaneous workshop, lead discussions, make new friends and love on old friends. Please come and celebrate our various cultures and share our ideas and friendship together!
Chairs? What's the story on chairs for the event? (How tall? how low? any restrictions?)
There will be a section just south of the stage that is reserved for ARC women. This area will also be a space that is acceptable to use full size (tallness) chairs.
As the hill inclines (going away from the stage), beach chairs or 6” chairs are recommended.
Tall chairs and sport-rella shelters are acceptable on the top of the hill furthest from the stage area.
Producers reserve the right to ask you to remove or move your sport-rella if it impedes flow of traffic or vision of other festies, so please be considerate of your Framily.
No smoking in the stage area. Smoking is allowed at the top of the stage behind the sport-rella area (in the spruces, see attached map, subject to change as producer sees the need). Smoking area will be designed
Alcoholic beverages are acceptable throughout festival farm. Please do not use glass bottles if you can avoid it. If you are loud and rowdy, please be respectful and kind to your framily. If you plan to be loud and rowdy late in to the night, please consider camping in the zone to be considerate of your framily.
If you are loud, obnoxious, or rude, or any variation of disruptive, the producers reserve the right to ask you to leave.
Please remember what you pack IN, you PACK OUT!
Use recycle containers, trash containers, and “returnable” containers (Michigan bottles and cans have a 10cent deposit).
Thank you for your consideration! See you in the woods, sisters.
