Flux's 4th Annual Retreat - Round up
Tuesday, September 1, 2009 Leave a Comment
It wasn't all fun and games - behind Jake and Cotton are walls covered in Core and Aesthetic Values, Organizational Flow Charts, Departmental Responsibilities, and more. But it was also fun, and games.
And in that spirit, Heather suggested an open thread for all who were there to weigh-in on their favorite parts (and make suggestions for future retreat improvements).
To jog your memory, the days looked like this:
Sunday, 8/23: Set-up
Monday, 8/24: 4 Member Sessions - Core Values, Aesthetic Values, Timeline, Circles of Flux
Tuesday, 8/25: 4 Member Sessions - Strategic Planning, Org Flow Chart, What Are We Not Talking About, Cool Ideas
Wednesday, 8/26: Plays - The Lesser Seductions of History (workshop) by August Schulenburg and Incendiary by Adam Szymkowicz (reading)
Thursday, 8/27: Plays - The Why Overhead (reading) by Adam Szymkowicz, Crimes (workshop) by Erin Browne, and Cloud Tectonics (reading) by Jose Rivera
Friday, 8/28: Plays - Moving Statues (workshop) by Corey Ann Haydu and Menders (workshop) by Erin Browne
Saturday, 8/29: Plays - Ajax in Iraq (reading) by Ellen McLaughlin, Lickspittles, Buttonholers and Damned Pernicious Go-Betweens (workshop) by Johnna Adams, and Troilus and Cressida (reading) by William Shakespeare
Sunday, 8/30: Break-down
That list, of course, does not feature the bonfires, documentaries, Family Feud, ball games, Battlestars, and brownies that made up the befores, afters, and in-betweens of a whirlwind week. ALL of that is fair game - what worked? What didn't? What will you remember most?
And THANK YOU to Bill, Bridget and Anisa for their amazing hospitality at Little Pond - any company looking for a retreat could not find a better place.
So get your posts ready - and game on!
