What happens at this thing?

It’s hard to explain what the Northeast Unschooling Conference is like. There’s joy and there’s chaos, laughter and tears, lots of silliness, hugs all over the place, play, learning, fun, and struggle. There are always lots and lots of questions, and all different kinds of answers.

Presentations at the Northeast Unschooling Conference are wonderful places to learn and discuss many aspects of unschooling, with topics to interest everybody. We’ll have presentations and chats that will challenge you and excite you. Our presenters not only share their wisdom in scheduled slots, but also take joy in getting to know new unschoolers and becoming friends.

Funshops are a great way to play, explore, learn new skills, and try new things you never thought about in a safe environment with people who are passionate.


On Friday there’s the Talent Show, where performers from professional musicians to two year olds doing somersaults to well, interesting acts, are equally admired.  Saturday will be a Cosplay Day, with a Cosplay Show, followed by our Masquerade Dance and Everyone’s Birthday Celebration. There’s the Untrepeurial Fair throughout the conference, where you can sell your creative wares. There’s the picnic, where everyone relaxes and chats and plays.

Funshops are Opportunities to explore new ideas and interests and learn from fellow attendees. While some Funshops might work better for some than others, all are non-age discriminatory. Try new things! Play!
