We're delighted to have Meera Sethi help out with TSR this year. Meera is a Toronto-based artist who has done a lot of great work in South Asian and mainstream community. Her latest efforts were on Arts and Homelessness policy report released earlier this month. To the left is a book cover she designed for an anthology of poetry by female South Asian writers.
We'll be working with her to create a fresh look for all of TSR's marketing materials.
Booking the date and place was the easy part. Now comes the hard(er) part as we have only 3 months to organize everything else. Also throw into the mix, a desire to change things up with the agenda / content and perhaps even add an activity day to the retreat.
So here's where we need your help. Please let us know if you're interested in helping to organize this year's retreat.
We don't need a lot of people, but rather a few dedicated and energized individuals. No experience or "Sikhi-expertise" is required; even if you haven't even been to a retreat. But a willingness to work is mandatory. If you're just going to drop by and do some drive-by commentary on themes and workshop topics, please just send us an email with your thoughts. At this point, we're looking for people with passion, energy and the ability to hold themselves accountable for delivering on their responsibilities.
So email kulvirgill at hotmail dot com and let us know if you're up for the challenge. Its always a lot of work, but always a blast.
We've set-up this blog to keep everyone posted as to the details of this year's Toronto Sikh Retreat. Over the next few weeks, we'll be updating the website and marketing the event. But we'll use this blog to keep you apprised of what's happening.
