SEED, PLAY AND UNITE
We provided pre-workshop surveys to each of the participants, as well as post-workshop feedback forms. These were the results.
We had an average of 13 participants join each workshop. More than half were young and from marginalized backgrounds. For many, it was their first time attending workshops like these.
A major incentive for offering these workshops was that it was almost impossible to find inclusive and affordable opportunities/spaces to gain self-care + land-care tools within the Waverley District.
A vision for Seed, Play and Unite was to provide a platform for Indigenous and PoC facilitators to share tools and inspire modes of better caring for the self, community and environment. All 8 of the workshops were considered engaging with engaging facilitators, but it was crucial for us that they have a more lasting impact.
The workshops hoped to unite young people from a variety of backgrounds with one another, connecting on themes of spiritual and ecological awareness. Unfortunately, the country was hit with harsh lockdowns almost immediately after the last of the workshops in the series, halting all plans to further build in-person community.
18 participants attended more than 1 workshop
9 participants attended at least 3 of the workshops
88% of the participants felt drawn to connecting deeper with the community of attendees.
