Canopy Retreats, formerly known as EA Retreats or EARs, is a new org that aims to aid the EA community in the planning and running of mid-sized, multi-day events. We are running a hands-on, experience-based internship this summer. Read more about it here. The deadline for applying is April 26th, 2022.
How we plan to support the community:
- Retreat consultation: Would you like to run a retreat but are unsure where to start? Set up a meeting and discuss your ideas with Leilani.
- Operational Support: You’ve received funding for your retreat but lack the time/ people to manage the back-end logistics and operations needed to run the event. Apply for operational support here.
- We are currently minimally staffed as this is a new org, but will likely be taking on 2-3 retreats this summer, and hope to support at least two retreats a month from September on.
- Resources: Over the next five months we will be releasing a set of resources that the community can use to run their own retreats. This includes programming guides, operations air tables, and email templates.
We are excited to assist with impactful retreats that otherwise would not happen.
Thank you to Lenny McCline, Aris Richardson, Akash Wasil, Sydney, Owen Cotton-Barratt, Max Daniel, and the countless others who supported me along this journey.
Special thanks to Catherine Low for the new name!
