Thank you for all you wonderful Cascadians and organizers who joined us for the 2018 Cascadia Convergence and Campout! held down on 97 beautiful acres in Brooklyn, WA. The 2018 Cascadia Convergence was a space for Cascadians to come together to share, learn, connect, and celebrate, and the rest up to each person! Space is held for anyone to host workshops, play music, and sit around the fire.
2018 Cascadia Convergence & Campout
This was the fourth annual Cascadia gathering, with the first starting in 2014 as Cascadia Rainingman, and transitioning into 2016 as Cascadia Convergence. This year was entirely organized by the Seattle CascadiaNow! chapter, and they did an absolutely amazing job, painting beautiful signage, creating banners and tapestries, as well as large scale artwork and art gates that were placed around the property. A zero waste communal kitchen was provided, large fire pits, regular, family and RV camping, wonderful workshops from primitive skill sharing to Cascadia flag creator Alexander Baretich giving talks and presentations and more importantly, a wonderful crew of more than 50 folks came out, and set the intention to keep meeting and creating well into the future. The cost was only a suggested donation of $35, with no one turned away.
What do you have to share with your fellow Cascadians? Why is learning about bioregionalism important? How can we best connect with each other and our beautiful space on this planet? What are the best ways to celebrate our love of Cascadia?
The next gathering on the land will be a Cascadia Equinox Gathering the weekend of September 20th. You can RSVP here.
At Cascadia Convergence, we hope that everyone interested in the idea of Cascadia can meet face to face, and have a great time camping. Each year, this awesome, fun filled, family-friendly weekend features art, music, presentations and workshops. We bring together a variety of different interests and groups so that a range of Cascadian perspectives are represented. We focus on bringing people together, organizing and planning, and building community.
