SWEATSHOP SIMULATIONS

Attendees can choose to participate in simulations of sweat shop conditions that will run throughout the event. These will consist of receiving a back story that reflects real-life exploitation scenarios lived by millions across the globe and attempting to meet the production goal set for the character while sitting at a table without breaks doing one repetitive monotonous task.  Participants can join discussion groups to share their thoughts and experiences once they complete their simulation.

UPON ARRIVAL, SIMULATION OPTIONS AND SIGN-UP SHEETS FOR FLEXIBLE SIT & GO EXPERIENCES, 1-HOUR or GO-AS-LONG-AS-YOU-CAN CHALLENGES WILL BE EXPLAINED AND OFFERED FOR ANYONE INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING.

Funds raised will go to support Aurora House.
