Educational costs

We are operating this workshop on gift economy, which means that there are no set fees.

At the end of the workshop, each participant will be free to choose the amount of their financial contribution:
– with regard to his/her financial means and what he/she will have received/experienced;
– with the awareness of the costs incurred and the team’s wishes for a financial contribution. Indicative amounts will be shared, as well as details of the costs incurred.

Thanks to an exceptional financial support from the Foundation for the Progress of Man (FPH), participants will not have any costs for accommodation and food: everything is taken care of.

Our dream is to make this workshop as accessible as possible. We work hard to find funding. Donating nothing is welcome. At the same time, we want to best honor the investment, creativity, knowledge and experience of Roxy Manning and the 9 other people of the team (organizers, assistants and interpreters), remunerating them in a way that also takes care of their needs. Since the majority of these people are considered “non-white racialized”, it is all the more important for us that their work be recognized and valued.

We are therefore counting on the participation of all those who can afford it to support us and thus encourage us to continue organizing this type of event.

By way of comparison, an equivalent NVC workshop over 10 days, with full board, usually costs around €1,600.

Payment of deposit and NVC Beyond Borders membership upon registration

The fixed costs of the workshop amount to around €6,000. This includes paying for the transport of the entire team, counting ten people (trainer, organizers, assistants and interpreters).

In order for the workshop to take place, we therefore ask people who register to pay a deposit to secure this amount. The deposit does not cover any contribution for the time and work of team members.

You will be asked to pay your deposit once your registration has been validated by our team.

Pease note that membership to the organizing association, NVC Beyond Borders, is required to participate in the wokrshop (between €5 and €50). The payment of the membership will be made at the same time as the deposit, on the HelloAsso platform.

Refund conditions:
The deposit is fully refundable up to 1 month before the course (October 7, 2023) and up to 50% up to 15 days before the start of the course (October 24).
There will be no refund after this date.
