Borneo’s Vanishing Tribes a film by Chelsea Greene Friday 11PM at the Amphitheater

A documentary about an indigenous tribe, a ruthless industry, and a primeval rainforest. The Dayak tribes of Kalimantan are the victims of an ecological war with international companies and palm oil. Our film whisks you on an emotional journey first hand through their struggle with land grabbing; the vast majority of their sacred forest being converted to palm oil plantation. 75% of Borneo's forests are predicted to be destroyed by 2020 and with it the Dayak's spirit and culture.

Inside-out Healing with a Sustainable diet with Chelsea Greene (Saturday 3:00pm meet at the Cafeteria)

Sustainable consumption; being an informed and responsible consumer is the most important thing everyone should be aware of. Through various film projects and travels I've gained knowledge about industries that are destroying the rainforest and experienced first hand the palm oil companies rein of terror on the forest of Borneo. I would love to lead a workshop to share this story and tips and facts about how to eat more sustainably; which leads to a healthier body and healthier planet.

built in elements of ableton so theycan take those skills home. I'll discuss composing, mixing, sound design, sampling, and performance.

Game Time for Adults with Wade Appleton Friday 1pm

For the weird, the silly, the loud, the outgoing! Through this workshop, we aim to instill a sense

of self-awareness, and spiritual growth through the use of games and activities. In this workshop,

participants will be asked to let go of their sense of self, let go of their fears, and embrace the

energies of human expansion and human experience (and, oh yeah, to have FUN)! We will begin

with various warm-up and focus exercises that aim to bring casts of actors (or a group of festival

go-ers) together as a unit; aiming to form one group energy, one group focus, one group mind -

functioning as one group entity. Once everyone is on the same page, we will play games that

help us explore different levels of social interaction, and develop an understanding of how and

why we treat other people differently. This workshop will be a really fun experience for people

who are looking for something different! Come play some games with us! (No acting/theatre

experience required)
