Internal Events Coordinator: Sass

Contact: sass@alenawatters.com
Want to lead a camp private event? Want to schedule something just for the camp or village? The internal events coordinator is here to help!

Friends! It's been 5 years since I joined Camp Contact for my first burn in 2013, and this year I'm excited that a last minute possibility came up for me to come back for a second time. This year I have a desire to be more involved, along with having my own explorations, so I've decided to take on the role of Internal Events Coordinator! I will be learning this as we go along, and am excited to assist in creating content to offer our camp, village, and the Burning Man community at large; if you have a class, gathering, or workshop offering that is not already scheduled, let's discuss so that we can be a space of creating authentic, non-judgemental connection...with ourselves, with others. Excited to see and meet you all, and to learn-as-I go with this new position! Love, Sass n' Fabulousness... ;) Sass (aka Aléna)
