Creating conversational communities that drive change

2023 Craft Cabin-ReSEED

We are excited to be offering Craft Cabin- ReSEED, this spring!

Craft Cabin is a place to connect head, heart and art to broaden and deepen your SEED work.

ReSEED is an opportunity to reconnect, recharge, and continue on with your SEED work.

Craft Cabin-ReSEED will be in person on Cape Cod, MA from April 14-16, 2023. With a focus on facilitating in-person and designing art-based activities, this ReSEED will require all participants be fully vaccinated at least 2 weeks prior and with a negative  PCR or rapid COVID test within 48 hours prior to the start of the session.

If you are interested in applying for Craft Cabin - ReSEED, please apply here.

For over 35 years, SEED’s theory of action has consisted of individual reflection and development, interpersonal communication and relationships, and systems analysis and change within communities, organizations, and institutions. With this model in mind, we offer  ReSEED training for practicing SEED leaders as a chance to revisit, renew, recharge, and recommit to working for a more just world.

In the summer of SEED 34 and the year 2020 in the middle of COVID isolation, virtual SEED sprouted a new branch: Craft Cabin.

Craft Cabin was born from a notion that accessing and sharing  deeply held stories and feelings might be aided and expanded by more deliberately connecting head work, heart work and hand work (and body work) in community with others.

Art activities have the capacity to create avenues of understanding and feeling that are not easily accessible with words. Craft Cabin is a space where the  process of art making is valued and encouraged to grow.

Craft Cabin is a space where the visual/physical product is a by-product of the creative journey that comes when stories and feelings are expressed through using materials at hand- markers, paint, bodies, collected objects  and sound. Craft Cabin is a space where the connection of head, heart and hands is encouraged in the service of communicating  complex thoughts, feelings and experiences more clearly.

ReSEED deepens and broadens practicing and soon-to-be-practicing-again SEED leaders’ ability to use our methodology more flexibly to bring about individual transformation and systemic change. This Craft Cabin-ReSEED is designed to be a rigorous training  where participants explore themselves and strengthen their facilitation  using a variety of modes of expression.  All Craft Cabin ReSEED participants will leave with their own set of arts based activities,  practices and strategies to function more powerfully and passionately to seek educational and organizational equity.

Rolling admissions will start immediately, and we recommend that you apply sooner rather than later. The full pay cost is $1,500/person. Scholarships of up to $1000 per participant will be provided to public school participants and others on a case by case basis.

A $500 deposit must be made by March 15, 2023.  This is nonrefundable unless the spot is filled by another participant. Full payment of the remainder is due by April 1, 2023. Information on how to pay will be sent upon acceptance. (We currently have scholarship funds available. Please indicate on the application if you are interested in learning more about these.)

If this session time does not work for you but you are interested in a future session, please let us know ( and we will keep you posted.
