Description

Alternate ROOTS' 43rd Annual Meeting & Artists' Retreat

ROOTS Week Annual Meeting & Artists’ Retreat is a one-of-a-kind gathering – six days of performances, art and organizing workshops, UpROOTing Oppressions sessions, visual art exhibitions, famous Late Night cabarets, and ROOTS’ annual business meeting, in a retreat-like setting in the mountains of North Carolina. Artists, cultural organizers, and their families come from across the South (and beyond!), joining an ever-growing, ever-evolving coalition of people committed to building a just world through arts, community, and activism.

This year, we’re turning our attention toward Class and Power, in response to a conversation that opened up at ROOTS Week 2018. To learn more about the theme, and ways to plug into the conversation before, during, and after ROOTS Week click here. We hope you’ll join us on this journey of collective, community learning – in preparation for collective, community change.



On-campus ROOTS Week Tickets are SOLD OUT! But you still have a few options…

From May 1-10 we held a members-only registration period and sold out of on-campus tickets, BUT there are still a few ways to get yourselves to ROOTS Week:

  • Register for the Daily Rate WITHOUT lodging and stay off campus. (Check out these off campus housing options.) These tickets are $45/day.

  • Join the waitlist. Waitlist spots for weekly, on-campus spots are $350 for adults and $150 for youth 6-18. Daily rate tickets with lodging are $75 per person per day. Please note: when waitlist spots are offered, they must be paid in full at the time of registration.




EVERYONE is welcome at ROOTS Week.

And: EVERYONE attending ROOTS Week – even babies and young children! – must be registered individually. Accommodations are limited, and to make sure attendees are as comfortable as possible, we need to have an accurate headcount of who will be staying on campus at Lutheridge. Minors under 18 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

To register families you must complete each registration one after another. Please list your family members as 'roommates', and our registration team will know to house you all together.

It is the mission of Alternate ROOTS to strive to be allies in the elimination of all forms of oppression, and we cultivate an intentionally diverse and inclusive community. We embrace all people – across race, gender, sexuality, religion, immigration status, ability, or any other marginalized identity. We actively resist racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, Islamophobia, and all other forms of oppression.

We want you to bring your whole self to ROOTS Week! Please be prepared to take whatever space / do whatever homework / seek whatever support you may need before and during ROOTS Week to be “respectfully responsible” for your own work as an ally in our collective liberation.
