Attendees will learn everything from how to dance the jitterbug, how to complete an advance care directive, how to overcome stress with yoga and meditation, how to draw Pokémon characters, how to roll basic sushi, and much more.  As a celebration of experiential and peer-to-peer learning, the How-To Festival presenters are community experts from all walks of life.
