In this online workshop, we will have the pleasure of learning all about Ramadan with my friend Roula. And Roula had the great idea of inviting a friend of hers, who is 10 years old, so that our kids can hear about another child’s lived experience celebrating Ramadan. So super exciting!
Our special guests will explain all the cool details about this holiday. Then we will work together on a group craft to share with our Muslim friends and neighbours – spreading love and kindness and sharing the message that we are all more the same than we are different, that we are all part of one big human family. Oh my heart is full.
The workshop will take place through Zoom. The meeting link will be emailed to participants the day of the workshop.
You will notice that we have listed two ticket prices for this event – $15 or $25 per family. I use this two ticket format when I am running a workshop with a guest. When I invite a guest to a workshop, I want to make sure that they are fairly compensated, so I split the revenue from a shared workshop 50/50. But I also want to be sensitive to our participants’ needs right now. With this two ticket format, families can self-select the ticket price that works best for them in this current time.
We know that a lot of people are experiencing financial hardship right now, and we want to be empathetic, compassionate and accommodating to that. But we also know that there are others who are less affected financially right now and are looking for ways to help our local artists, organizations, community builders and businesses. We thought that this two ticket price system was a fair way to balance all this. Please select either price, without any guilt or fear of judgement. And, if $15 is not possible at this time, but you really want to attend, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work something out!
