Thanks to everyone who came to 2019 Twin Oaks Queer Gathering!
It was great to see old friends and make new ones. If you didn’t fill out a paper evaluation at the gathering, please take a few minutes to let us know how we did and what you’d like to see next year at https://forms.gle/EKZyjiifQFtRKkYm6
2019 Info: Want to come? Register now at our eventbrite page!
We suggest $80 to cover our costs for a whole weekend of camping, food, fun, and community organizing. However, we want to be as financially accessible as possible and are offering tickets on a sliding scale basis of $40-140. Please pay what you can! If you are experiencing extreme financial hardship, you may purchase a work trade ticket for $20 and sign up for 2 work shifts instead of one. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Not sure where you are on the scale? Take a look at the graphic below! The scale is intended to be a map, inviting each of us to take inventory of our financial resources and look deeper at our levels of privilege. It is a way to challenge the classist and capitalist society we live in and work towards economic justice on a local level. While we ask you to take these factors into consideration, please don’t stress about it. Pay what feels right 🙂
In our strongly individualistic society, sharing and acting in community is an inherently radical act. It also keeps our costs low so that the conference is financially accessible to more people. Participants are asked to do at least one 2-hr workshift during the weekend. Some tasks include (but are not limited to): set-up, registration, childcare, kitchen help, cleaning, and more. Please do your part in making this fabulous event possible!
