Camp Tasty at VdF

Virtual del Fuego begins Friday 5/22/20, at 6 p.m. Eastern time

The following schedule includes all events at Camp Tasty, plus events elsewhere in the virtual festival that we'll also be active in (like the Pony Burn).

All weekend (Fri. 6 p.m. -- Sun. midnight)  "How Are You REALLY?" -- Interactive sculpture on display in its own Jitsi chat space [linkage at this blog, once VdF begins]. You are invited to add your (bespoke) graffiti or make other alterations to the sculpture via text, to be implemented by Flightless as things evolve. [Unlike the traditional Temple structures, this sculpture is not burnable. It contains mixed media and is intended to be saved as a relic of our event, ideally even to be displayed at a future Actual Gathering of some kind! However, specific messages that you wish to be transitory can be added via small paper flags we will burn at the end of VdF.]

Fri. 5/22
6:30 - 7:30 p.m. -- Mocktail Hour with Fenriss and Flightless. BYO non-alcoholic drink ideas and ingredients.

12:00 -- Midnight Art -- Collaborative online painting with Diana Smiles on a single shared canvas. Link to communal canvas will be provided in the chat.

(Ongoing / all day... Build Your Own Ponies! -- Everyone is invited to build their own burnable pony effigy, no matter how small.)

11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. -- Stitch and/or Bitch. Bring your own sewing, knitting, unexpressed grievances, TMI, or other projects. And your own coffee. We will gather to gripe, vent, overshare, and/or show off what we've been crafting. [Flightless]

1 p.m. -- Eric Likes String. Eric will demonstrate knots and ways to play with string. (Recommended: 10-15 feet of paracord, thin rope or clothesline.)
