Cascadia Raining Man

From Cascadia Now:

Cascadia

Cascadia

Welcome! We’d like to invite you, your group or organization to our first ever Cascadia Rainingman festival, happening in the foothills of the Cascade mountains near Concrete, WA August 29th – September 1st

**Please share with anyone who may be interested!**

Even if you or your organization can’t make it, you’re getting this email because you are a great group, related to Cascadia in some way, and we’d love to offer you space to share any pamphlets, zines, or information you’d like (we can work out a way either to take it up for you, or get it printed out if it’s in digital format).

During the day will be presentations, skillshares, workshops, discussions, and debriefs, with art happening throughout the weekend, and live music each night.

Saturday will focus on Cascadia as it exists now. We want to give room for organizations and individuals to discuss key issues facing our region, debrief recent actions, and share knowledge that people find important.

Sunday will focus on Cascadia tomorrow! and have more general open discussion time geared for meeting, organizing, and planning for the future.

Throughout the weekend we’ll also have a schedule of workshops and skillshares hosted around the farm and more generally focused.

More than anything, we just want to create a space that brings together Cascadians for an awesome weekend. Ticket prices are a suggested donation of $35. No one will be turned away however.

There is still room for presentations, skillshares and workshops. Music lineup, presentations, registration and proposal submissions on the mainpage: http://rainingman2014.org

Tables for displaying information are also available.

All the best,

Brandon Letsinger
