As an artspace looking to grow more deeply into the community, we want SUMMER CAMP to be a free/low-cost weekend to encourage anyone to attend. We are opening our doors as a host and are here to help shape your idea to be as successful as it can be. However, due to the nature of our space, we cannot provide funding to support proposals at this time. All costs to produce your program will need to be incurred by you, the organizer. Organizers are welcome  to accept donations during their program or performance to help offset costs with a cap of $10 suggested donation. We do greatly encourage proposals that can be free and open to the public.


We will be utilizing both our indoor gallery space and our outdoor patio space. You can propose a program or activity for either space. We will break in the middle of the day for lunch and before evening programs. Ticket holders can come and go as they please. We will have some light snacks and drinks, but please feel free to BYO. While we are reserving Saturday evening as a performance night, we may curate your performance for a day time slot. Please do state the length of your proposed performance/activity/happening (max 1 hr) and your preferred day and time. Performers and musicians - please have your own equipment.


*Note*: You DO NOT have to be an artist or creative professional to submit a proposal or attend, although we do strongly encourage artists and creatives to apply and attend. The goal of SUMMER CAMP is about sharing and participating with peers, networking, learning, and just having some late summer fun!
