Below you'll find visual art specific information followed by an application!
If you are specifically interested in vending your work, please refer instead to the vendor application.
If you are interested in joining our talented sign painting crew or working as general art support, rather than proposing a specific idea, please fill out a Sh'build application.
Art creation and instal takes place during Sh'build! Aug 31-Sept 07th 2017. Sh'build is an opportunity to immerse in creative collaboration alongside other artists while camping, eating delicious organic meals, jumping in the water for swim breaks, and steaming by night in the sauna. If you need more time than this to build your work please let us know and we will see what we can do to accomodate.
There is forest and meadow tent camping on site as well as various locations for vehicle camping during both Sh'build and Sh'bang. Drinking water spouts from all our taps! We provide 3 home cooked organic meals a day during Sh'build. During Sh'bang we will have local/organic focused food vendors on site Friday through Sunday.
Sh'bang is not like most festival models! We prioritize immersion in extravagant creativity, providing a platform for experimentation and new ideas. It’s a festival made by artists for artists and is primarily volunteer run! Sh'bang supports the creation of infrastructure for the Lookout Arts Quarry, a collectively owned remediated rock quarry turned art center, which in turn supports the artist in residency program (http://www.lookoutarts.com/air/) and other artistically inclined endeavors. Our vision is to build an accessible and affordable cultural hub in nature for artists to replenish, tune in, and develop the more experimental edges of their creative beings. In turn, we value you, and want to support you and your art in as many ways as we can. As well as, or in lieu of pay/covering travel costs, we may be able to offer a combination of the following: organic delicious meals, unusual forms of creative support, access to Quarry artist facilities and artist residency program in the off season, love and sass! Let us know what would feel fair to you and we will do our best to provide!
We love having kids at Sh’bang! http://shbangfest.com/project/kids/
