Where: These weekends happen in a variety of public and private locations. Depending on the weather, public spaces may be in parks, near or on statues or on benches or it may be in a stairwell, or on the subway. Private spaces may be rentals to allow for more vulnerable and deeper investigations. It all depends on what the focus of the weekend is.
When: 9-7 with 2 hours break for lunch. In New York we try to crash the Saturday Jam space.
Who: Anyone, but especially marginalized folks who do not normally attend. We proactively reach out to populations through our regular affinity classes that happen once a week. I give discounts to weekend fee organizers in other cities if they are able to reach out to marginalized communities.
What: The Immersion weekend is a chance to take a deep dive into the Parcon world. Any combination of classes can be put together depending on who is coming and what they are interested in. A general Immersion schedule consist of Parcon classes to orient movers to the Resilience currilculum, skill development in solo, duet, and extensions in Parcon, and social justice investigation.
