Arts & Science
Welcome to the A&S activities at Double Wars!
This year we are doing things a little differently – at least when it comes to the competitions and also a little when it comes to the teaching.
The laurels of the Kingdom have decided to step up and do a Laurel Academy so Wednesday of the event will be all about this! You can read more about that a bit further down on the page.
We are as always looking for teachers and we ask you to fill out our usual class registration form so that we as A&S coordinators can help you as teachers to the best of our ability when it comes to finding the right time and spot for your class.
This year we will have a large display and then the blank scroll competition.
There is more information about the A&S display in the section about the Laurel Academy.
The blank scroll competition has the following rules:
1. The scroll has to be a blank and not be designated for a certain person. It may contain symbols of orders or awards.
2. The scrolls will after the competition be given to either Their Majesties or Their Highnesses of Nordmark or Insulae Draconis. It is the scribe who made the blank scroll that decides where the scroll goes.
3. If you have a short description of the scroll (like from where you got the inspiration, what century it is etc.) it is appriciated!
4. Sign your scroll on the back and make sure to leave information to the person running the competition (Lia de Thornegge or Katheryn Hebenstreitz) to which crown you wish to donate the scroll.
5. The competition has 2 prizes – Queen’s choice and Populace choice.
Laurel Academy at Double Wars
This year the Laurel of Drachenwald are premiering a concept where we teach and interact with the populace for an entire day during the big events throughout the Kingdom, starting with Wednesday at Double Wars.
Wednesday morning will be filled with Laurels teaching classes in their specialized subjects. Come and learn and be inspired and ask all those questions you have been wanting to ask!
In the afternoon the Laurels Prize Display will take centre stage and the populace, that is you!, are encouraged to bring their projects, along with documentation and sit at your display to talk to everyone who comes by. The Laurels will be going around and looking at everything, chatting with you and giving you good feedback on your projects.
This is not a competition – but it can help you to prepare for a competition. For more information and some tips on how it will work, check out the Laurel page on the Kingdom website. http://www.drachenwald.sca.org/content/laurels-prize-display
