Grace Exhibition Space for Performance Art (Brooklyn, NY) and GRAY ZONE for Performance Art (Kingston, NY), have graciously extended an open invitation to SHARE and its community of multimedia artists to join them for a party and camping at Rosekill Farm, a beautiful, privately owned patch of nature; a former animal farm with barns, fields, lawns, woods, a pond and a private swimming lake (aka “the plake”) and a boat dock.

Envisioned is a beautiful, long holiday, outdoors weekend filled with continuous performance art, sound art, music jams, live visuals and video projections on trees, barns, constructed surfaces, etc. We will have campfires, lake swimming, community cooking, foraging, yoga, hiking, sunbathing, fishing, conversation, BBQing, sky watching, fireworks, and in general just a jolly good time with good company.

There will be at least one sound-system set up with the ability for many to plug in and video projectors (the same ones from SHARE weekly.) If you’d like to have white surface to project on, consider bringing stretchy large fabric with thin ropes to set up a temporary screen(s) (or any creative surfaces you may want to try out!)

ESSENTIAL INFO

Even though this is an open invitation, we want to try to keep the total number of people attending this time at around 40 or 50. So please DO NOT freely cross-post this info on public lists; but please DO invite and share with people you trust and really would want to spent a long weekend with!

The space and land is still fairly raw, but some old barns and trailers provide shelter from the elements. You should bring at least a sleeping bag to stay warm, but for the most fun pitch a tent anywhere on the extensive grounds! There are so many lovely places to camp. You are free to pitch a tent in the forest, field or lawn.

There is running water, electricity, and an outhouse but no jacuzzi or bathtubs. Expect to come and stay totally self-sustained with camping gear, tents, cooking & sleeping stuff, food and drinks for 2-3 days. Even though there are supermarkets in the area, driving there might not be happening that often. It's best to bring everything upfront you'll need for the full long weekend.

Donations: There are always costs from E.G. group food and drink runs, so we ask that campers who are able donate to cover these costs.

WHAT TO BRING

Gear: Bring your instruments, synths, laptops, noise makers, projectors, light installations, cables, extension cords, power string and art making things in general to share in all-day and all-night open jams. As said above, we do have two video projectors for you to use/share. If you’d like to have white surface to project on, consider bringing stretchy large fabric with thin ropes to set up temporary screen (or any creative surfaces you may want to try out!)

Food: Please bring food for yourself and to share. Prepared, ready to eat food is a good idea unless you are planning on taking the time to prepare food for cooking yourself. We will have a BBQ grill(s) and open fire(s) and some form of a field kitchen. Be creative and join in into the food preparing and making. When at the supermarket and you see something you like, get two of it – and share.

Beverages: There is drinkable water from a private well. Please bring enough juice, beer, booze, etc to cover yourself and to share.

Camping & Cooking Stuff: Tents, sleeping bags, air-mattresses, propane-burning camping stoves, cookware, flatware, utensils, bowls, cups, paper plates, grills, tarps, shade structures.

Other useful things: Flashlights(!), solar-powered lights, batteries, walkie-talkies (we'll share a common communication frequency to tune our radios to for a land-wide comm network), garbage bags, floatation things for hanging out on the lake, inner tubes, sharks, sunscreen, camping propane canisters, bug-spray (lots!), tick protection & tweezers, toilet paper, paper towels, coffee-makers, electric air pumps, candles, matches, lighters, WARM JACKETS and extra protective clothes (it could get cold at night), umbrellas (rain & sun), kites, extra shoes, rubber boots, extra socks, waterproof footwear, long pants, swimwear, sun hats - anything you want to share.


ELECTRICITY / LIGHTS

There is grid-provided electricity in one of the main barns around the central area. Bring your own batteries, flashlights, camping lanterns and solar-powered lights. There is a nice walk-way from the center area to the boat dock at the lake. It would be wonderful to make this an "alley of tiny lights".

Mobile phone reception may be spotty or non-existent, depending on your phone carrier. Plan to stay “off the grid” for a few days. You'll feel so much better afterwards ...


LIVE ANIMALS

This is wild, raw land; this is nature! There are small & large wild animals, deer, snakes and biting insects like spiders, mosquitoes and ticks! Bring proper protection as you would when going full-on wilderness camping or hiking. There's also poison ivy! You have been warned.


BASIC RULES

SHARE everything is the core mantra: art, music, food, drinks, company, care, love.

Also, what comes in, goes out. Come, party, make art, jam, swim, enjoy and LEAVE NO TRACE.

Everyone helps cleaning up at the end and cleans up after themselves in general (bring garbage bags). Avoid glass containers, bottles and things that can break, be left on the ground, and cause someone running around barefoot to cut themselves. We don't want to have to call an ambulance during this party. Be smart and considerate of others and your surroundings. Care for each other.

Open fires are NEVER LEFT ALONE!


GETTING THERE

Rosekill Farm is located near Rosendale, NY.

It is about 2 hour (~90 miles) car drive from NYC. A detailed address and directions will be emailed 1-2 days before the event to only those that have RSVPed.

For bus option, you can take Adirondack Trailways bus to Rosendale NY and then a short taxi ride to the camp. There is a chance of a very limited shuttle service -- between a bus stop and the camp -- depending on which bus trip times are found to be the most popular. We might contact some of you and ask you to hop on a more popular bus, but we would prefer if people could get to the camp on their own.

That's it! We are looking forward to sharing a wonderful weekend with you all!
