Event description

Description

Make art your Valentine. Romance your creative energy. Celebrate with your community.

We aim to create a safe space for you to explore your relationship with love through creative expression. You will be surrounded by inspired people sharing their passions. You will also have ample opportunities to participate and interact by creating your own art.

Here are just a few of the things you can experience with us:

  • Contribute to a large-scale group painting
  • Perform music, spoken word, dance, or any kind of performance art on our open stage
  • Create a piece of visual art to take home
  • Share your voice in a group singing circle
  • Write and edit a poem in a group workshop
  • Reconnect with your body in a group movement meditation
  • Discover the power of touch through contact improv
  • Find truth through movement at our evening dance party


All these activities are optional. This is a safe space! You will not be forced to do anything. You will be invited and given the room to decide your level of participation.

Whether you are an experienced artist or a complete beginner, we invite you to come as you are. As Picasso said, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” All are welcome. All will be appreciated.

During the day, we will be creating a cozy floor atmosphere (imagine the front areas of Bampot). There will be chairs available for those who need them. To help create this atmosphere, we ask you to participate in our “comfort potluck.” You’re invited to bring pillows, cushions, and blankets for everyone to share.

During the evening, we will transition to our feet as we dim the lights and dance to progressively more intense music. For both day and night, you’re invited to explore love and creativity through how you choose to dress.

You're also welcome to bring art supplies and musical instruments to use and share.

We will be selling all kinds of foods and drinks, including alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

Come join us for an unforgettable, unique day. February 17th is right between Valentine's Day and Family Day. And because it's on a long weekend, it's a Sunday that gets to play like a Saturday. With our vibrant creative community, a gorgeous high-ceiling space, and art everywhere, this isn't just going to be another art party. Come make history with us.
