Refuge Outdoor Festival: Virtual Event



  • Instructor Refuge Outdoor Festival

Due to the massive impact that Covid-19 is having on communities of color, it is important to hold space for them to be centered and uplifted. This year's festival will be a 3-day virtual event, Sept 18-20. We are sad that we are unable to gather in-person for Refuge Outdoor festival, but we must continue to adhere to social distancing guidelines to keep people safe. Our 2020 virtual festival will have a mix of live and pre-recorded workshops, performances, affinity groups and activities. We will provide a curated database of offline activities such as art projects, recipes, and resource guides for attendees. We are bringing back Beats & Batter (Morning DJ set) and a Silent Disco because our attendees loved these activities so much last year. We will continue to center our festival on building community with the themes of adventure, boldness, and healing. Our focus areas of outreach will be Seattle, Oakland, and Atlanta. Over the last two years people have learned, laughed, cried, made new connections, and imagined a more inclusive future together. We look forward to doing the same online this year.
