Spring 2024 Campus Open House

February 3 @ 11:00 am 2:00 pm EST

Our Campus Open House is an opportunity to drop by the Sanctuary to get to know our many initiatives and programs! This is a great opportunity for potential interns, volunteers, or curious community members to ask questions and learn more about what we do. Our various initiatives will have activities, tables, and workshops in the Sanctuary Main Space, with scheduled campus tours throughout the duration of the event.

Activities & Workshops:

  • The Art of the Interview Radio Workshop: In this interactive workshop you will be given real experience stories, demonstration, and exercises to improve your interview and conversational skills. We will work with equipment and discuss how the interviewer can shape the interview.
  • Camera Operation & Live Directing Workshop: In this workshop you will learn about how to set up the camera (white balance, memory cards), how to operate a camera (set up a frame, adjusting focus, how to find a new interesting frame), and working with a live director who is speaking to you in your headset.
  • Seed Swap: Learn seed keeping methods from local gardeners, acquire seeds to grow, and bring your own seeds and stories to show and share. There’s no need to bring seeds or have any knowledge of seed-keeping or gardening to attend–you can also join for company and conversation! We’ll also be joined by Danielle Peláez, who will be tabling on behalf of Soul Fire in the City.
  • Cooking Workshop: Sanctuary chefs Jonathan Segol and Intaba Liff-Anderson will oversee making a recipe start to finish. You will also get to bring food home with you!
  • Be5 STEM Activities: From 11 AM – 1 PM, Dr. Emilly Obuya will uses a variety of games, activities, and experiential learning to guide youth through their discovery of electrical circuits, coding, chemistry, robotics, and more!
