TOUCH&PLAY 2019 Registration

The Touch&Play Project is a not-for-profit venture. We try to make our events as economically inclusive as possible while still honoring time and energy put in by both teachers and organizers. We provide a sliding registration scale with three payment categories and encourage you to pay as much as you can afford.  Registration includes participation in all festival activities, accommodation at Earthdance & very yummy home cooked organic vegetarian meals. For more info on the types of accommodation offered at Earthdance please check-out their web page.

Participants are asked to arrive and check-in at registration for the event at Earthdance on July 9 between 5-7pm. We’ll start that same evening with an opening circle which we ask everyone to attend. 

One of our core values is inclusivity and contributing to the larger cultural shifts we want to see. We want to support new people to join our community and particularly to create space for trans, non-binary, poc and people with disabilities to join us. To this end we are reserving 30% of our tickets for these participants and may cap registration if necessary in order to save these spots.  Please consider who among your friends you would love to invite to T&P for the first time. Who might love to join us and will contribute to the diversity of our community? Are you willing to contact them and share what you love about them, about our festival, and to see if they would like to join us? Thanks for helping support our vision of belonging.
