People  don't talk, do.
It has always been the people that have made Ansteorra different. Here are some things to do.
I Create a special place within your campsite to promote your dream of Ansteorra. If you have a non-period tent decorate it as best you can or put up a privacy panel. I have used the pop up tents and put a wall hanging up to hide my old tent. If you don't have a wall hanging nice brocade will do. If you need ideas just ask me.
2. Do something "period" at the list field or in the hall. Play cards or Backgammon or dice. 
3 If you are Nordic or Celtic bring things to trade on a one to one level. People traded all the times in early cultures.
4 Invite performers over to entertain at your household feast. Just because you are not  nobility doesn't mean you would not have entertainment.
5 Bring period Stories and read them out loud while other play card games. 
6 encourage Courtly love and the Courtesies and flirt with everyone. 
7. Take the ideal of the Lions of Ansteorra as a model and shape the area around you to feel like a place in the medieval and Renaissance world.
Ask people who do that to come and teach a class or speak to your group or household. Seek out the knowledge you need and arrange it to taught. You don't need an official OK just do it in your campsite or home. Our officers are so busy just handling the paper work that they don't have time to organized. As long as you are courteous and thoughtful of the people around you there should not be a problem. For example don't have classes in your campsite during a major activity. Have an impromptu class over lunch.
