Ephemerisle is the first-ever floating festival of politics, community and art. The festival will launch October 2, 2009 in the Sacramento River Delta in California.
Participants are asked to bring their crafts and their ideas to build an eclectic temporary village of boats, rafts, barges, junks, and other floating structures. A large central platform will be provided as a common space to come together. We'll have music, dance, open mic performances, even classes on how to build your own floating platform... and on Saturday night, a community feast to begin the evening's festivities.
But this is just the beginning: This will not be a spectator event, though there will be plenty to see. Participants will bring their own art, activities, ideas, and love of community and freedom. You will define what Ephemerisle turns out to be.
We aren't content to simply dream of a freer world. We want to live it. Ephemerisle will be the first step.
