DaFT: Volunteer and Build Big Art!

Need some Saw Dust Therapy or even just a little DaFT curious? The Design and Fabrication Team is going full speed up at the warehouse on Wednesday and Thursday nights from 6pm to 10pm and Sundays 11am-7pm. There are also other ways to get involved with this team if you’re tool shy. Come and help out with the biggest community created art piece on the pecan playa – everyone is welcome (and encouraged) to DaFT. Find out more [here].

Art Registration is Now CLOSED

Art registration closed 11:59pm CST April 1st (no joke!). If you missed the deadline, need to update your registration or just need to talk to someone about art you are bringing to the event, click here to find out how to talk to someone regarding your Flipside art.

DMV and Me: Bringing Mobile Art

Just a reminder that the DMV guidelines were recently updated. If you are hoping to drive your art car (or mobility vehicle) on property at the event, please make sure you know what you need to know- you don’t want to show up to the event with a vehicle you are not permitted to utilize. Art Car and Mutant registration will remain open until May 17th. Check out this post to complete your DMV registration.

Events and the Event: Disinformation

Want people to know about your hot pink jello sculpting class being held at your camp Saturday mid day during the event? Wish you could get people motivated to join you for a daily session of aquatic yoga? When the heck is the Grampage this year? Don’t forget to register your event(s) before May 17th so that they will be included on the Disinformation kiosks spread throughout the event site. Register your events here.

Greeters Training!

Greeter’s training this year is going to consist of an online video to watch and quiz to take online. I’m in the process of getting those read to use! Will keep you all posted!


Art Projects Seeking Support

The Art Projects Seeking Support Page was created in order to help boost the signal for Flipside bound art projects that could use a little assistance, whether it be asking for resources, expertise in the community, more hands or some moneys. There are some AWESOME projects up right now that could use your help- seriously fantastic. Check them out!
