The Workshop Committee is accepting workshop proposals until October 31. They are particularly looking for more workshop proposals focused on movement, arts, or writing. However, other new topics will be considered as well.

Workshops offer Gathering adults and high school participants the opportunity to be immersed in a topic with other interested Friends. Friends stay in the same workshop throughout the week, forming a small community within the Gathering. Each workshop meets in person from 9:00 to 11:45AM, Monday-Friday during Gathering. Most workshops include daily worship or worship sharing. 

We are planning to offer several online-only workshop options as well at the 2022 Gathering. Online-only workshops would take place Monday-Friday in the afternoon Eastern, for 2 hours each day (exact time TBD.)
