A2FS is an organization composed entirely of volunteers who team up with the community to provide free, accessible and inclusive classes, skillshares, workshops, discussion groups, and events that promote the mutually beneficial exchange of ideas, skills, and smiles here in Ann Arbor (and Ypsilanti), Michigan, USA!
Your problems are solved with an Ann Arbor Free School button.
Every Wednesday after the A2FS Organizational Meeting we have Arts & Crafts. This week Hanah busted out the ol' button press and supplies. Arming ourselves with some old picture books, pens, crayons, and markers we buttoned until we couldn't button any more. It's as easy as short treasure hunt through a book for an eye-catching background image and then a bit of your own creativity to top it off, followed by some finesse on the button press (or hot glue) to create the finished products. We ended up with about 20 brand new, one of a kind buttons each as unique as their creator. Good times!
So, as I previously mentioned, we buttoned until we could button no more, but only because we ran out of supplies. Although, fear not! Button crafting will return at the upcoming A2 Free Skool Kickstarter Event! As we gear up for the next DIY Fest (October 6th - mark your calendar!) we'd love to have you join us for food, games, music, crafts, and a big bonfire! It's all happening on Friday, August 31st starting 5pm at "The Basin" 124 Felch, Ann Arbor.
Cant wait until then? Want to meet cool people and get involved ASAP?!
Join us next Wednesday for our Organizational Meeting / Crafting double header, all are welcome! You can find more info in our Calendar. So satisfy that craft fix and come help make some new Ann Arbor Free Skool flyers!
Spirituality could be described as an inner path enabling a person to discover the essence of one's own being. All over the world, there are innumerable established religions that have paved a particular path for their faithful followers. Although, each individual's journey is solely their own and not everyone fits snug into one of the world's religions...
So, come join Todd & friends for the new "Finding Your Religion" Discussion Group to explore your spiritual self!
What is it?
An open dialogue about our place in the universe; a warm and supportive environment for anyone to share their thoughts on spirituality and religion.
When is it?
Thursday, April 16th @ 6PM.
(And every other Thursday, alternating with the Science/Logic Discussion Group)
Where is it?
A2FS Discussion Groups are held at Cafe Ambrosia, in the center of downtown Ann Arbor.
CHECK OUT OUR CALENDAR FOR MORE INFO AND OTHER GREAT CLASSES!
Grab yer dancin' shoes, water and a snack, hammock, and a smile-- we're goin' to HOLLER FEST!
Holler Fest is a music festival in Brooklyn, Michigan (45 minutes southwest of Ann Arbor). The event takes place at Frog Holler, an organic vegetable farm owned and operated by the King family for more than 40 years.The goal of Holler Fest is to form sustainable relationships between artists and communities. As organic farmers, those at Frog Holler work to create the best conditions for plants to reach their optimum health. Applying this philosophy to Holler Fest, they hope to create optimum conditions for arts, culture and community to thrive.
Discussion Groups have launched! Every Thursday 6PM at Cafe Ambrosia (for the time being), we're encouraging you to join us for a little bit of cerebral reciprocity on a variety of topics.
Last week's logic discussion group (I know it needs a snappier title - suggestions?) was an absolute GAS. We covered topics ranging from Seinfeld to the oscillating universe theory to ways we can evaluate scientific claims heard the news.
In contrast to last week's highly logical discussion, tomorrow we are going to delve into the metaphysical realm and learn more about our spiritual selves as Todd hosts the very first A2FS Finding Your Religion discussion group. Take this opportunity to open up a dialogue about our place in the universe, and share your inner spirituality with us in a warm and supportive environment.
But empiricists! Never fear!
Logic discussion returns next Thursday, August 9th at Ambrosia. We'll talk some more about the structure of logic and how to recognize logical fallacies. Probably.
Are there topics you'd like to see discussed? Women's studies?? Cryptozoology?? Legal arbitration?? Let us know in the comments!
A splendid time is guaranteed for all. Stop by if you can!
