2019 Whippoorwill Workshop and Activity Instructor Application
Welcome past and future workshop leaders!

We are excited to invite you to apply to teach at this year’s gathering, July 19 - 21 at Lago Linda Hideaway in Beattyville, Kentucky.

We are looking for workshops and activities on the following topics: gardening, permaculture, natural building, tracking, fire making, stargazing, foraging, pottery, woodworking, appropriate technology, cooperative skills, herbalism, wellness/self-care, livestock raising, and food preparation/preservation. In addition, we encourage proposals that:
-Are taught by local instructors
-Focus on the skills and folkways of our Appalachian region
-Are aligned with Whippoorwill’s roots in the movement for social and environmental justice in Appalachia. This includes -workshop proposals on monitoring soil, water, and air quality, extreme mineral extraction, bioremediation, community organizing, civic engagement, human identity politics, and cultural appropriation.

Please pay special attention to the workshop/activity titles, descriptions, and bio sections as these will be used to promote your workshop at the gathering, on the website, and in print.

The following options are available for workshop/activity length:
1. Workshop: 2 hour – morning 10am to 12pm or afternoon 1-3pm
2. Workshop: 4 hour afternoon 1-5pm – this longer time slot allows for more in-depth and/or off-site workshops
3. Activity: for offerings that fall outside of the normal workshop times due to your unique activity needs. For example, 7am morning yoga, 9pm night hike, etc.

If you have questions, please email the Workshop team at whipfestworkshops@gmail.com

I understand that by agreeing to lead a workshop at Whippoorwill, I am making a commitment to be at the festival site on time and to bring my workshop materials. *
Life sometimes happens .... If I am not able to fulfill my commitment to lead a workshop, I will promptly notify the workshop coordinators by phone or email and will try to do so at least 2 weeks in advance. *
Anything else we should know?
