freeskool-summer-card-10

The Ithaca Freeskool is accepting class submissions for our June – August semester. There are a billion reasons to teach. Here are a few of them:

Meet your community, make sweet friends!
Share your skills with people – you like to share.
Try out a hobby with a group of others. Way less boring, more motivation.
Test out your teacher self. When you teach, you learn.
Make time to do the things you love.
Empower the community. You don’t have to be an expert. We’ve all got something valuable to give.
Freeskool is cool. Even though it has a “k” in it. You need to be cool, right?

You’re convinced? Oh, good. We’ll be taking submissions now till May 3rd 2016. The Freeskool is a flexible, informal platform for teaching – get on it.

The next semester will begin June 1st and go until the end of August. We are looking forward to your class submissions. To submit please fill out the form on our site at:https://ithacafreeskool.wordpress.com/get-involved/

Ithaca Folk Song Swaps – new date for July!

When: 6/21, 7/26 2-5pm  Aug dates TBA

Where: Crow’s Nest Café 115 The Commons Upstairs from Autumn Leaves Books

Let’s get together and sing.  We’re looking for people in the Ithaca area who want to get together to lead a folk song, and join in on others’ songs.  We’ll welcome traditional ballads, chanteys, & songs, as well as contemporary songs with traditional roots.  Bring your acoustic instrument or sing a cappella.  We’ll take turns going around the circle to lead or request a song.  One person guides the turn-taking, encourages beginners, discourages noisy side conversations, and generally tries to keep things on track. Let’s build a stronger Ithaca-based network of folksingers.  Come sing us a song!http://www342.pair.com/elerner/Songswap/
