Burning Flipside is fast-approaching! And just like you, I got projects to do, so let’s jump right into the news. …there’s some important event specific info here, so this post is part Flame, part Announce: “Flam-ounce”!
Non-Profit Success! We did it! Thanks go out to the most recent board of Austin Artistic Reconstruction, LLC. While we were all hunkered down and starting re-emergence, they were hard at work, securing a new non-profit status (and new organization to run it) for our beloved community! Read more about it here!
Event Registration Are you holding an event at Flipside this year? What’s that you say…your camp is inviting Flipizens to help demolish a fantastic Derby-themed feast or hosting a demolition derby of Derby hats, but no one knows yet? Do you have events listed in your theme camp description, but haven’t taken a minute to head over to the event page and get them added to the Events list? Do it now, so you can focus on those last few projects! Event registration will close at 11:59pm on Friday, May 19th. Head on over to the Event Registration form, log in, and add your event to the growing list of goodness! See event lists at our 7 disinfo kiosks placed conveniently throughout Pyropolis.
DMV Registration: As long as we are registering things, let’s move on over to the Department of Mutant Vehicles and get those art cars registered! Same deadline and link as above.
Need a ride at Flipside? Do you sometimes miss out because you just can’t get from point A to point B? This year the org is trying something new! The Disinfo Kiosks will serve as event cart and art car stops we are calling Pick-Up Points (PUPS). There won’t be a regular schedule, but there will be a seat at most of the stops. Event carts and Art Cars STRONGLY encouraged to pick people up and drop them off.
Effigy Art: The Effigy needs art! The mushrooms are coming along great, but we need to finish out our sparkly disco wonderland with companions to accompany us on our forest floor adventures. Let’s populate the effigy with creatures, real, imaginary, or fae; mushrooms on mushrooms, ferns, dewdrops, spiderwebs; crystals and sea creatures, banks of moss, and tree stumps. Email DaFT or come to a build day and chat! (Tues/Thurs 5-10, Sun 10-5). These pieces can be burned or can come back to the artist when the effigy closes; we will have power available for items with lights and whatnot, & there is space for both 2D and 3D art of a variety of sizes.
2023 Survival Guide: The new guide to keep you alive is here! Read it, because it has great community art in the PDF and lots of important info about How Flipside Works. You need to be ready when a Greeter asks you, “How many gallons of water per day did you bring?”
Volunteer round up! Watch this space for all volunteering info for our all-volunteer event! (There’ll be a whole post about it!)
