BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange, a non-profit community arts center in Park Slope, is bringing back the Bodywork Sampler Day on Sunday, November 12, 2017 from 12pm-6pm. The event is co-produced by BAX and ThIS Body. The day is planned to celebrate and bring attention to the wide array of bodywork forms and practitioners that exist in our community, while also serving as a vehicle to raise much needed funds for BAX’s programs. Our goal is to offer a large range of bodywork forms for people to experience, from more well known offerings (i.e. massage, shiatsu) to lesser known forms people can be introduced to. The last time we produced this event it was a resounding success, full of networking and community-building.
We are currently seeking practitioners who will donate their services for a minimum of 3 hours or even the whole day. Practitioners should be able to offer their area of expertise to clients that are fully clothed.
**New Format!! The first half of the day, 12-3pm will consist of Practitioners offering their area of expertise with one-on-one sessions of 15 minutes (with the option of up to a full hour). Sessions will take place in three BAX studios with up to 6 practitioners working in one studio at a time.
The second half of the day, 3-6pm, Practitioners will offer their area of expertise with two 1 or 1.5 hour classes. Classes will take place in BAX studios with only 1 modality in a studio at a time.
BAX is able to provide chairs, yoga mats, blankets and blocks. You would need to provide your own table if required and any other props or items needed. Please note, the building is a walk up located on 2nd and 3rd floors with no elevator.
As in past years, we trust this event will be a rejuvenating and educational day for both practitioners and participants. Our goal is to highlight the wonderful and important work you do, bringing attention to your practice (and hopefully some new clients), while raising some money for BAX. We will highlight volunteer practitioners on all promotional material for the event including its website with a link to your site if you wish and social media. BAX can also provide an in-kind donation receipt for tax purposes.
If you are interested volunteering your services please fill out the attached google form. Feel free to email Events@bax.org for questions and/or more information.
Thank you so much!
