The evening festivities begin from 5-7pm with a drop-in Potluck Disco in the dormitory. Bring snacks and playlists to share.

The art begins at 7pm. Sometimes it’s fire spinning & drum circles, sometimes it’s an open mic music & poetry jam, and sometimes it’s shibari rope arts. If you want to host another type of OpenArt evening, get in touch at

8:30-9pm As these are volunteer-run events, we ask attendees to help out with tidying up so we can leave no trace and minimize impact on the artists in residence here. Help us gather trash and recycling, make sure the fires are safely out, that furniture and clutter are returned to their rightful homes, the dishes get done, the leftovers get put away, the counters get wiped and the floors get swept.


*What does it mean for alcohol to be de-emphasized? And why?
