The Hoop Convergence is the bringing together of a wide variety of hoopers from across the nation to create a synergistic learning environment where we'll exchange ideas, technique, and energy. We've put together a full schedule of workshops, panel discussions, crafting sessions and community jams with live music. The Convergence will be held in the beautiful Hooper Haven of Carrboro, North Carolina, an area rich with experienced hoopers, grassroots communities and natural resources.
