This brand new login system lets you experience Boomerang the way you want: you can see all of the workshops coming up, see past workshops you've attended, and save the ones that interest you to revisit later. Over time, as we get to know you better, you'll start to see the workshops that are unique to you.

What can other Boomerang members see?
Your first name, profile photo, city, and interests will be visible to other Boomerang members from the event page for workshops you attend. Don’t worry - only logged in Boomerang members can see this information and we never share personal identifying information like your last name, birthday, or email address to other users.
A new discovery experience to find the perfect workshop.
Now you can find inspiring workshops quickly and effortlessly, and see all of your past and upcoming workshops in one place.
