On Sunday, October 30, the R.A.W will hold a public pulping workshop at the Philomath Frolic & Rodeo Grounds in Philomath, Oregon. “Pulping” is an evolving process that experiments with locally-sourced materials and methods—alongside some wilder propositions—for making newfangled, off-the-grid stories with untold others in places we inhabit together.
As the home of the annual, award-winning Philomath Frolic & Rodeo since 1953, these Rodeo Grounds offer a deep and richly cultured space in which to encounter both the historic visible structures and the more hidden flows of time, weathers, and peripheral lives that animate this central place within a rural Oregon timber town.
The workshop will take place at the Philomath Frolic & Rodeo Grounds from 1 – 2:30 p.m. Please come dressed and shod for cool, wet weather and likely mud. We’ll have hot drinks at the ready.
This event is sponsored by the University of Oregon’s Center for Environmental Futures and the Pacific Northwest Just Futures Institute through a generous grant from the Mellon Foundation.
All are welcome. Pre-registration via Eventbrite is appreciated (for planning purposes but no one will be turned away). Click here to register and git more info.
Let ‘er pulp!
