Come join us for a fun couple of hours cracking whips.
Newbie or well practiced, curious or have an extensive whip collection all are welcome to participate and socialize. It's an opportunity to connect with others who share your interest in whips.
This is a skill share activity. There is no predetermined technical instruction set up for each practice. On occasion, a mini-workshop is offered by an experienced whip enthusiast to highlight something they find interesting and wish to share.
For those that are new or nearly new to whips, and do not own a whip, there is often an extra whip or two that can be borrowed.
Where other participants in attendance are willing, you may get to experience throwing their whips if you ask nicely (depending upon their preference to share or not). Some of us are quite partial to our whips, ya know!
Bring your juice or caffeinated beverages as you will get thirsty during practice. Water is provided as well a plastic cups but you may want to provide your own container. It is requested that alcoholic beverages be left at home.
MVK, which sponsors this event, the venue (Wise Hall) and/or the host(ess) assume no responsibility for any injuries incurred while attending the practice. It is entirely at the attendees risk.
We will be practicing on Balloons, pom poms and/or Stuffies during practice, not people. Practice bottoms are not required for this event.
In keeping with MVK’s mandate of accessibility, this skill share is by donation. The majority of MVK’s monthly education runs at a loss overall, the short fall of which is covered by our annual fundraiser, Westcoast Bound. If you can donate, we ask that you do. If you cannot, lack of finances is not a barrier to participation.
This event is 18+.
This event takes place on the unceded, ancestral, and traditional homelands of the Skwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), Tsleil-Waututh (səl̓ilwətaɁɬ) and Xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) peoples. As community event organizers, we seek out intersectional and engaged ways to be in solidarity with Indigenous communities of whose lands we live, work and play on.
We work hard to use accessible venues for our events so that no one is barred from participation. We are open to ideas of how to continue and improve accessibility and will thoughtfully work at meeting those needs.
