    CALL FOR SESSION PROPOSALS

    We are currently looking for individuals that would like to share their expertise and experiences as DCFs to serve as session leaders and presenters.  This year, we will be emphasizing how we as facilitators take action with our DCF principles, methods, and business considerations, to truly be leaders that help us move drum circle facilitation into the future, rooted in the theme of “The Power of Rhythm”.  

    Given our theme, we are looking for sessions that truly take the community beyond “Show us what you do”, that push the envelope of our learning, and that help us grow, develop, and build the future of drum circle facilitation.

    A. DCF Business Development (building market presence, client base, equipment & logistics, start-up funding, etc.)

    C. DCF Techniques and Strategies (activities, games, resources)
