Today Kari and I will head to Chicago, where she’ll go to the wedding of her sister Dana, while I catch a plane to Heathrow. From there my parents will be driving me to Greenbelt for my tenth experience of the festival. The green card situation means it’s been two years since I was last at Greenbelt and that’s just too long.
The lineup looks great and this year will probably be my best chance of seeing things in a long time but my guess is that far more time will be spent talking with friends than attending sessions. I’ll be running a workshop on Social Documents and participatory politics either on Sunday or Monday (it’s in the programme twice and I need to work out which time would work best).
I’ll try to blog from the festival, but no promises….
