Join us to learn how to rig a tarp for a variety of reasons- everything from sleeping out over night to hosting a group of people outdoors! An alternative to expensive canopies that break when you fold them up! We will begin by learning a few basic knots and then moving out into the park to tie up some tarps.
If you would like to get a head start on the knots: Clove Hitch, Taught Line Hitch, and Bowline Hitch
These knots are also useful in many other situations such as securing things to roof racks, bike racks, etc...
In this discussion, we hope to define the terms "accountability," "call out / call in," "white fragility," "distancing," and "disposability" as they relate to our fight for social justice, discuss effective tactics for calling out & calling in our peers, and discuss how to react when you've been called out or called in.
There will be vegan & gluten free snacks and non-alcoholic beverages!! This is a substance-free event.
Learn how to create merch for your music/art project. BC nothing says P U N K more than a jacket full of hand crafted buttons.

This is a substance-free event. Don't be a jerk.
