Need some Saw Dust Therapy or even just a little DaFT curious?

Built stuff before? Awesome, come on down. Never touched a tool in your life but always wanted to? Fantastic, come on down and learn something new. If just showing up seems a little daunting or you want some more information, reach out to DaFT@burningflipside.com

Also, just a reminder- if you are an artist less interested in building the BIG thing and are more interested in looking to help make things especially weird and fabulous in smaller ways, reach out to daft@burningflipside.com to see how you might be able to help. It’s the biggest community created art piece in the pecan playa- everyone is welcome (and encouraged) to DaFT. 

This effigy ain’t gonna build itself!

Work Weekends!

Work Weekends are scheduled to make sure everything is ready for Burning Flipside. We gather downed tree branches, clean up trails, and give the land some love before Pyropolis takes shape. There’s plenty of work for folks of all skills levels. If you want to learn to do something you’ve not done before, we’ll help you learn how.

This first WW is focusing on clearing downed trees and limbs. Later in the Spring, we start working on poison ivy removal and fire ant eradication.

You can camp all weekend, but overnights are not required. The focus is getting work done. While there are good times around the fire at night (burn ban and weather permitting), this is not a party. They are Leave No Trace weekends, and you must provide for yourself as if you were at a burn (bring your own food and water). NO DOGS, and no open nudity are permitted.

There is a smoker on site, and we will be cooking some meat. We could use someone to help with this – let us know if it’s you! Please bring a side or snack to share.

All work weekends start at 6pm on Friday, and everyone has to be off the land by 5pm on Sunday.

PLAN AHEAD!

Work Weekend 1: Feb 15-17 (this weekend!)
Work Weekend 2: Mar 15-17
Work Weekend 3: Apr 12-14
Work Weekend 4: May 3-5

Let us know if you are coming! You may not be allowed on the property unless you have signed up on the spreadsheet before the work weekend. You must sign a waiver on site, too.

Ignition Philter’s Second Year!

Ignition Philter (the independent art grant organization) had a fantastic first year at Burning Flipside. There were puppets and pay phones and blinkies and music and fire, oh my! We had 32 applications and were able to give away money for 16 pieces. For a refresher of whose art you helped pay for, see the list of last year’s winners.

2019 is coming and we’re ready to not be freshpeople. We learned a few things and are ready to go bigger and weirder next year. In addition to funding more projects, we have plans to work towards being a 501c3 when the 2020 Flipside comes around

Want to learn about our upcoming plans and how you can help? Check out our post here for more details.
