Frequently Asked Questions
First and foremost, this is an experiment. As with any process, the way we go about will likely change and adapt as we move along this community spirit together. As I set out to build this space, some obvious questions arose. Some of them came from women whom I consulted with in this process, some were questions I could imagine asking myself. If there is something you are wondering about and I didn’t include it below, ask anyway.
What about this?
There is a reason why thousands of womyn have attended the Festival every year for the past 40 years. There are thousands of stories to tell about the Michfest experience. We want to know about your first time on the Land, the first time you walked in the sunshine with your shirt off, when you watched your daughter or mother experience the Festival, when you fell in love (again), expanded your understanding about what womyn are capable of or what we could look like, liberated yourself from a secret you’d kept your whole life, crowd surfed, the friendships you’ve made, healed your heart, healed your body, learned a new skill, slept outside for the first time, decided to let your facial hair grow, a workshop that stayed with you, a memorable Opening Ceremony, the time you scattered the ashes of a loved one. We know it is not always easy. There will be times when we will want to talk about the challenges of living in this beautiful, hard working yet sometimes complicated community. The list is long and varied. It’s all significant. It all matters.
