Woman Who Rock Event Blog 2 – Group 3

This unconference is an event that brings the community together. Outside of the cultural center there are tables set up where a group of young kids work together to make cultural food for people that are interested in trying something different. Further out on the field there was a group of Latinos playing their instruments and the ladies are teaching each other the traditional dance. There are many instruments laid out on the field for anyone to join; this is not excluded for just Latinos. This shows the diversity within the group. There are also little kids around that joined in on the fun. Inside the cultural center kids participated in learning what each organization did. They were also enthused to try new things out and create artwork. This is such a great event created for everyone to participate in.  I hope that it can continue for many more years to come.

Woman Who Rock Event Blog 1 – Group 3

There are a lot of things to see at this unconference. I start my visit downstairs at the cultural center. This is a session called a skill swap; where groups come together to teach others about the purpose of their group. There are many different tables set for each group. I have encountered a group that focuses on Zaps. They are encouraging every one of every age to use their imagination to create a comic. They have laid out tutorials to teach everyone how to create a comic within one page. There is a separate table where a mother is focusing on publishing books of all types. She even published a book that her youngest daughter wrote. She spoke about convincing her mother to write a book because her mother never thought of herself as a writer.  She said the purpose of this was so that people can show others their voice in a different light.
