Comfort & Joy is teaming up with GenderBlender and Beaverton and we are proud to announce the 5th rendition of QUEERiCULUM!
What is QUEERiCULUM?
An all-day, queer-centered educational urban retreat with a variety of fun skill share playshops with diverse topics ranging from cerebral, social, and artistic to technical, sexual, and historical. Multiple concurrent tracks give you several options to chill, create, learn and play all day before Queericulum ends with a delicious community dinner theatre experience.
How can you get involved?
This educational celebration is a community-built event, created by people just like you. We encourage you to get involved, have a great time, and give back to your community either by sharing your wisdom or supporting this event with hands on volunteering help. Many of our playshop hosts are NOT “certified experts” but they have enough knowledge to share with the rest of us. So can you. This is a great channel for you to shine, to cut some teeth in leading a playshop, or for you to promote yourself and even your professional services to your community.
