Feed the Artists needs a big push!

Postby squishelle » Tue Aug 03, 2010 2:29 am

:::::THEME CAMPS:::::

We've got lots of Artists signed up and need MORE THEME CAMPS to take on the fabulous joy of feeding them! If you are or know anyone who will be on playa pre-burn & who could host an artist, please talk to them, call them, ask them to check this out!

They don't have to be a theme camp per see, anyone who's out there early is encouraged to mingle with the artists.

There are artists groups in numbers ranging from ONE to THIRTY, so even if you can only invite 2-5 people to dinner, that's a huge blessing to the artists.

An artist group who just signed up said:
"Our meals last year were not only a highlight of our build, but also really contributed a lot to our efforts to putting up the installation. Such a wonderful contribution! : )"

You can check out all of the Artists waiting to be invited to dinner here: http://tinyurl.com/FtAArtistsAvailabilityChart


As part of the FtA program, our own camp has over 50 volunteers who put in loads of time to create a unique and special environment for the Artists we will be hosting, during 4 amazing dinners, where we hope to feed over 500 artists. But these are not normal dinners on the playa! With gourmet food cooked by volunteer professional chefs, multi-course meals, and incredible entertainment.
We are therefore seeking to raise money to fund our on-playa dinners, including costs associated with food and beverage, shwag such as medallions to gift the artists, transportation, refrigeration, infrastructure, waste disposal, decor and entertainment.

If you cannot participate in the program itself, it would be so helpful to us to receive any donation towards our efforts.
Everything we produce, from the food to the frolicking entertainment, is a deep and heartfelt expression of appreciation for the artists and all the beautiful people who are our guests.

We have 11 days to go to reach our goal, with 27 Backers, $2,375 pledged of a $4,250 goal. Please visit --> http://kck.st/9cpNcB.
