This October, from North Wind Manor in Nashville, Tennessee, we’re once again sending you a taste of the Rabbit Room in the form of Hutchmoot: Homebound. Over the course of this multi-day digital event, you and your family and friends will be able to access a rich variety of content including music and, as always, sessions and workshops on art, music, and story from a variety of speakers. We even have a few surprises in store.
But on top of all of that, we aim to provide you with tools and opportunities to connect with people in real time right where you are, wherever you are (and yes, that includes international folks). Once the event is over, we hope you’ll feel the boundaries of home have expanded to include new faces, new voices, and new ideas. There’s no limit to how many can join. So everyone who wants to join the feast will be able to find a seat at the table.
What to Expect
If you are unfamiliar with Hutchmoot: Homebound, here’s the rundown: it’s a digital event spanning from Friday, October 8th to Sunday, October 10th. It began last year as a way of holding our annual arts conference (Hutchmoot) without putting any participants at risk of contracting coronavirus, and it was so much fun that we’ve decided to do it again this year. All tickets will grant you complete access to the private Hutchmoot: Homebound website where content will be shared over the course of these three days. This website will function as the main hub of the event.
We are beyond excited to share that our Keynote Speaker for Hutchmoot: Homebound 2021 will be the one and only Malcolm Guite. There will also be plenty more speakers, musicians, and artists of all sorts—stay tuned as we continue to share more information.
One of our favorite parts of last year’s Hutchmoot: Homebound was the many creative ways that guests were able to connect with one another, even from a distance. So just like last year, we will be providing you with a set of tools and opportunities to help you foster community right where you are.
And finally, even though Hutchmoot is online this year, we believe it should be more than merely digital, so once again we are putting together a box of mysteries just for you: the Mystery Moot Kit.
What’s inside? You’ll have to wait and see, but its contents will make the Hutchmoot: Homebound experience all the more tactile and special, should you choose to request one.
Choose the option that’s right for you:
$50 – Complete Package (includes Mystery Moot Kit) ($60 International) Available ONLY while Mystery Moot Kit supplies last (or until July 1st)! Complete access to all Hutchmoot: Homebound website content (sessions, music, chats, and other surprises), plus we’ll mail you our Mystery Moot Kit, which includes all kinds of supplies that will help you make the most of your Hutchmoot experience.
$150 / $250 – Small Group Package (for 5 or 10 people) Available ONLY while Mystery Moot Kit supplies last (or until July 1st)! If you’d like to invite friends over and participate in Hutchmoot as a small group, we’ve got you covered. This package offers complete access to all Hutchmoot: Homebound website content (sessions, music, chats, and other surprises) for ONE account so that you can project video to a device of your choice at home. And we’ll ship the contents of 5 or 10 Mystery Moot Kits so everyone gets their own materials.
*If you choose the small group package, we strongly encourage you to abide by the regulations in place in your area to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Please do keep the group small and act responsibly for the good and well-being of your neighbors.*
We’ve tried to cover all the bases, but we realize that there are lots of moving pieces and you may have a question that hasn’t been addressed by this post. That’s why we’ve put together this FAQ page on the Hutchmoot: Homebound website. There you will find answers to questions practical, logistical, and existential (if you’re lucky).
