Experience Community at Allen Street Marketplace
New to Stoopfest 2018 is a variety of community oriented activities hosted at the Allen Street Marketplace located on 1161 E. Kalamazoo Street. From shopping with local vendors, to learning useful skills with workshops, the Marketplace will be open from 1-5pm and is sure to provide a unique addition to the Stoopfest experience.
Art & Craft Fair
This year Stoopfest will feature a Craft and Vendor fair! Artists and vendors will be setting up tables from 1-5pm at the Allen Street Marketplace to provide festival attendees with options to purchase unique handcrafted items such as jewelry, zines, screen-printed posters, coffee, and more!
Pop-up EVENT with Green Dot Stables
Just ahead of its grand reopening (Green Dot Stables has been closed since early March after getting hit hard by the flooding that affected the eastside earlier this year), Lansing's premiere destination for incredible sliders & craft beer will be doing a special pop-up at Allen Market Place from 1p to 5p! Be sure to pop in and fill your belly with items off the special menu they're crafting just for us!
The goal of this workshop is to build a culture of consent and break down inherently violent norms we're currently living in by integrating consent into our everyday lives.
We'll create a collective definition of consent while giving you space to think about what consent means to you and your own boundaries and needs. We'll also work through how to intervene in tricky situations. We'll examine mainstream concepts of bystander intervention and how we might do better. The focal point of this conversation is how to support folks with their needs and safety in mind.
We hope you'll walk away with language to communicate your boundaries and talk about consent, steps to intervene in a 'crisis' situation, and tools to intervene on a day to day basis all while caring for yourself and supporting survivors
