About this project

…to maintain a community that cultivates interest in and pursuit of art, music, and artistic expression

That is the primary mission of Apogaea, a non-profit organization and official Burning Man Regional Event for the state of Colorado. This year our art festival has grown to a population of 1,300. As such, we want to build new infrastructure to fit the growth. However, we've refrained from raising 2012 ticket prices, as we always attempt to keep ticket cost from being prohibitive.

One area that needs some tender love and care, however, is Center Camp. While the Apogaea board has been able to give us some funding for infrastructure, we’re still short of what is necessary to create the space we’ve envision.

Traditionally, Center Camp has been a central meeting and general use space. While it hosted limited performances last year, in 2012 we would like to make sure it an unquestioned mecca of creation, interactivity, and the arts--from visual, to theater, to music and beyond.



Our intention is not only to create individual spaces for workshops, performances, and other forms of artistic expression, but to make the camp itself a form of interactive artistic expression.

While the interior would be turned into a gallery, venue, and home for services, the exterior would be extended via a courtyard addition. This addition would house a large, decorated burning barrel and be defined by our community art project, the fence.

Similar to Burning Man, our center camp fence is a mural space. However, ours is divided up into four triangular wedges. Also different is our choice in muralist. Instead of only allowing a select few artists to adorn the fence, it will be an open canvas for everyone at the festival, not only encouraging participation, but leaving behind a unique fingerprint of this year's community.

If you have hanging art or sculpture of your own that you'd like to display at Center Camp, please see our artwork registration form.



To make this vision come alive, the money we receive here would go toward materials, such as plywood, 2x4s, new electrical and lighting equipment, and fuel. With these supplies, Amelia would begin immediate construction on furnishings, signage, the gallery walls for hanging artwork, and the murals.

Extra money raised will help us purchase and build more furniture (and honestly, we could use a more than this budget accounts for!) better communicate performance and workshop schedules; further improve lighting; and improve our Cafe services.

As long as funding is successful, we anticipate have this in place for 2012. But, if you can't help monetarily, you can donate materials, or contribute some time.

Thank you in advance for your help with this creation! We’re all very excited about what Center Camp could be this year, the art that will come of it, and the art that will be it!

Love always,
Your Center Camp Team
