Call for Patrons and Teachers - Bardic Madness South
As you've hopefully heard by now, Bardic Madness South will be coming
up in just under three months (Nov 22nd, Kalamazoo, MI). We are
currently looking for additional teachers and challenge patrons.
While we've got several volunteers already, there's room for more.
Teachers: We are interested in putting together classes on a wide
of subjects related to the bardic arts. Past years have seen classes
that were theoretical (song writing, harmonizing, beginning
storytelling), practical (improv games, vocal warm-ups), or historical
(role of the bard in society, Shakespearean songs). What can we come
up with for this year? If you've got an idea for a class you'd like
to teach, please contact the provost.
Patrons: Each challenge will have a patron. The patron acts as the
host for their challenge - calling each participant forward to answer
the challenge, then thanking them with some token once they're done.
Tokens can, and have been, just about anything; buttons, rings,
brownies, and so forth. For those interested in being a patron, but
who find the thought of calling people forward an uncomfortable one,
alternative arrangements can be made. Note that if you find a
particular performance moving, you don't have to be the patron in
order to give that person a thank you. This is a good thing to do
anytime, not just at Bardic Madness. If you're interested in being
a patron for any of the challenges, please contact the provost.
How do you contact the provost? Glad you asked. The provost
(that would be me) can be reached at cerian@.... Further
information about challenges, directions, feast, and so forth can
be found at the event's website http://22.214.171.124/bms5 We hope
to see you there.
