After a one-year hiatus, WSCC’s fall festival, formerly called Eco-Fest, is returning as Reconnect. The theme of this year’s fair is Reconnecting with Nature through Art. The fair will open on Friday evening, Oct 7, at 7:00 pm, with a free showing of “Rivers and Tides” at WSCC. The film will be followed by a discussion and a ceremony to connect with Nature as inspiration for our artistic creations for the weekend. Saturday morning begins with activities for both adults and children.
The festival will include plant and bulb swap, an art supply swap, kid-friendly artistic/crafty upcycling activities, a gardening lecture, nature walk, the building of a bug hotel, a nature photography workshop and a rechargeable transportation petting zoo. In the afternoon, in the spirit of Goldsworthy, we’ll make an off-site trek to make our own ephemeral installation art using only found nature materials: leaves, rocks, twigs, etc.—an activity that is as much meditation as creation.
