Upcoming Events

Enrichment Circle

Rebuild of Henry Box Brown

WHAT:  Enrichment Circle is for older children and adults to have an opportunity to dialogue about art,  history, anthropology, material culture, sociology, film and pretty much anything that interest the participants.  We will meet a couple times a month.

Members of Apron Strings & Angel Wings dues cover the fee, if you are not a tribe member donations are welcome.

THIS SESSIONS TOPIC:  "Hitler Did What!?!"

WHERE & WHEN: Starting in late August time and day will be decided by majority of participants.

WHY: As an unschooled family, my child and others around us are reaching the age where they seem to need more opportunities for critical thinking and the practice of communicating these thoughts.  After a year of offering this program other participants are also offering topics of their interest to share as well as helping fulfill topic requests of younger participants.  We extend the group into a virtual space on Facebook as we continue to share and discuss past and current topics.

WHO: The group is geared towards and run by our teens interest.  That in mind consider your child's maturity level for this environment.  Most participants are mature 11 and up and topic discussions can be uncomfortable for some.
