Queer Art Party in the Woods

Friday, June 14-Saturday, June 15, 2019

The Queer Art Party in the woods will return to Estancia Serenova this year, on Friday, June 14 through Saturday, June 15 (with optional camping possible through Sunday, June 16)- just in time for the Portland Pride weekend! It will be a celebration of LGBTQ+ artists, and it will offer a slower-paced break from the urban noises. This event offers several open-ended opportunities to inspire creativity and collaborations, including beautiful woodland settings for plein air and open photo shoots! Additional activities are possible as the day approaches. The Friday evening will be a community potluck (we have BBQ!).

Bring your own art supplies, musical instruments, etc. We will also have a space where you can display and/or sell your artwork, craft, zines, and so on. This will be a low-key, open-ended event.

This year, I will be asking for a suggested donation of $10 to $20 per person (no one is turned away for the lack of funds). Bring your own tent and any necessary camping gear. If you'd rather prefer an indoor accommodation, it will be available at a standard price from the retreat center.

To sign up for the art party: Eventbrite

(If, for some reason, you cannot use Eventbrite, please email Willow.)
