July Festival: Call for Presenters, Solar Oven Bakers, and Volunteers!

We are excited to announce the Ann Arbor Summer ReSkilling Festival and are again seeking enthusiastic volunteers. Mark your calendars for SUNDAY, July 15th, 2012 (yes, Sunday!). Registration will begin at 9:30am and presentations will run from 10am-5pm at the Rudolf Steiner High School, 2230 Pontiac Trail, Ann Arbor, 48105. See below to get involved.


This summer we are especially interested in hands-on skills and workshops where people can actively learn skills while at the festival! If you have a sustainable skill or effort you would like to share, please fill out this online form. [See some ideas of cool workshops here]. Please forward the link to friends who may also be interested. We host several different workshop formats — from hours-long, hands-on sessions to 6-minute mini presentations. Diverse expertise levels welcome! We will contact you shortly to confirm the scheduling of your event.  If you have multiple sessions to propose, please submit one at a time through the online survey system. Deadline for session proposals is FRIDAY, JUNE 8TH.

We would like to host a Solar Cook-Off this summer! It won’t be competitive, but it will be a chance for us to see ovens in action and taste the goods. If you would like to participate in a cook-off during the festival, please fill out this form!


We always need volunteer help the day of the festival — from parking direction, to working at the registration desk, to set up and clean up. Please sign up here if you are able to donate some time the day of the festival. This event can’t happen without your help!

All volunteers and presenters will be invited to a pre-festival gathering to meet each other, eat yummy food, and learn about festival logistics.

We look forward to working with you!
