An Integrated Medicine Fair
Bridging Healing Practitioners with Community
This is a free event where the community can meet individual practitioners & discover products, finding out what works for them, that can be integrated into their regular health regime.
~ BOOTHS ~ MINI SESSIONS ~ WORKSHOPS
~ INFORMATIVE TALKS ~ DEMONSTRATIONS
Well when we started we had our first fair in 2014 there were 12 of us, and the 12 of us co-created the fair.
In 2016 our little fair grew to 26 folks registered & we had an amazingly successful fair with approx 175 folks attending. We had 22 modalities represented, mini-sessions from practitioners, health/healing products & 12 hours of workshops, talks & demos. Our offerings were amazing & I imagine our ripples large.
Now the planning of the 2018 fair needs to start mid-summer this year. I (Michele Fire-River Heart – de facto organizer) am no longer in the position to do the amount of work this entails as a volunteer. So if you want the 2018 fair to happen we need to brainstorm & come up with a solution.
From my perspective these are the options
1) Volunteers step up to organize it (I can help with job descriptions & choreography of the steps to get it done)
2) Money is found to pay to have it organized & the costs associated with putting it on (Hall rental, advertising, etc.). All told my guess is that approx 400 hrs went into creating & actualizing the 2016 one.
Please respond by emailing me to be added to the email list or with ideas and solutions at firstname.lastname@example.org
In unity there is strength, here on Gabriola we validate that saying over and over again. What an amazing community we are.
