Learn Something New at the How To Festival

On Saturday, Nov. 21 and Sunday, Nov. 22, EPL welcomes you to our first ever virtual How To Festival, opens a new window.

The How to Festival is a chance to learn something new from someone who already knows how to do it. A variety of experts, from professionals to enthusiasts, will share their skills with you

What will you learn? 

We'll have a range of sessions, from hands-on DIY to in-depth conversations that could change the way you see the world.   

Why do we think a How to Festival is a great fit here in Edmonton? Because we know that there are so many talented people in YEGand we want to give some of them a chance to share their know-how. Sharing is our motto after all! We have a number of experts, both from our wonderful community and our own multi-talented EPL staff.   

The learning possibilities are infinite. We had to make some tough decisions, but in the end, we decided to focus on three areas of How To-ing. 

1. How To Find Beauty

We can all use a little more beauty in our livesand sessions with this theme will teach us how to find and make more beauty in our daily lives:

2. How To Make a Difference 

While the world can be a very dark place (especially during November in Edmonton)we know that we can make a difference. These sessions will be about how to see and be that difference in the world:

3. How To Tell Your Story

And of course, we love a good story! When you take part in these sessions, you’ll get a chance to learn how to tell your story and share it with those around you:

So, how will it work? 

You’ll be able to see all of the sessions happening each day. Join whichever ones you are interested in. See a session you want to watch but aren’t able to make it in time? Not to worryyou can watch a replay of the session later. If you can attend the session when it’s happening, you’ll have a chance to participate in the learning live.
