Have your say on Arts and Sciences in the Barony

Are you interested in Arts and Sciences? Feeling crafty but don’t have a place to practice? Want to learn how to brew but don’t know who to ask? Wish that the Barony had dance classes so you could join in at feasts? Feeling like you know how to make clothes but don’t know who could use your help? Then fill in the new Rowany A&S survey and tell us how we can make Arts and Sciences more active and inclusive.

The results of this survey will be used to determine what sort of beginner’s classes we should organise. Or if there are small groups of people who could be introduced to each other because you all want to ‘practice’ in the company of others. It will also determine the best times to run A&S drop-in sessions, and Bunch o’ Classes (a weekend of classes and workshops taught by members of the Barony).

Results for Stowe, Okewaite, Radburne, and the Colleges will be separated out to help with their A&S planning, so don’t hesitate to fill it in if you play with those groups.

There’s 10 questions in total, and will take approximately 10-15 minutes. Click here to take the survey.
