Camp Tipsy Art & Art Boats!

$5,071

128

The San Francisco Institute of Possibility is proud to present Camp Tipsy 2015! We are hoping that everyone will make a boat this year, but there are a few exceptional artists who need some extra help with materials, transportation, consumables and other stuff. We have decided to list them here, and reach out to get this stuff funded. It will be a great way to let people know about the event, too.

Our fundraising is two-fold: one is for the ACRE of bullshit that we store in Lodoga all year that is the raw material for boat building for all you people. Camp Tipsy lost money last year, and the storage didn’t get paid. The other side of the fundraising is for the awesome projects that people have come up with — both on land and the sea! We’ve structured this campaign first and foremost to pay for storage. With that in the bag, all stretch goals will go to all the landlubber art and art boat projects from our featured artists.

We appreciate your generosity, and we will look forward to seeing your terribly implemented stupid boats this year!!!

Camp Tipsy is an annual rotten boat building contest and camp-out held at East Park Reservoir in Colusa County, California. Now in its 9th year, Camp Tipsy is a fun and family-friendly event. Participants build “boats” out of junk and enjoy boating and floating in the reservoir (or as we call it, Lake Lodoga). Each night features musical entertainment under the stars. On Saturday at noon your wonderful, whimsical, stupid boats compete for valueless prizes in The Boat Contest.

Camp Tipsy is fun both day and night with musical acts each evening! The lineup for 2015 is:

  • Thursday — Friction Quartet — stunningly beautiful string quartet
  • Friday — Trio Paz — fabulous Spanish flamenco music
  • Saturday — Rube Waddell — mixing Blues, Gospel, American and Irish Folk, Country, Rock, Punk, comic Vaudeville and German theater, South-East Asian ditties, a little funk and a lot of raw power

For more information visit CampTipsy.com

All money collected above and beyond the goal goes to directly as grants to artists building boats and art at Camp Tipsy. Each stretch goal hit means another artist we can fund!

Camp Tipsy is an event of the San Francisco Institute of Possibility. The purpose of the SFIOP is to create a sustainable ecology of art: enabling new and established artists, fostering community and civic engagement through art, and perpetuating an inclusive artistic community that lives the art it produces.

We are art facilitators. And pranksters. We take on impossibly huge projects, impossibly complex processes and impossibly confounding ideas and use the magic of collaboration to make amazing shows out of nothing at all. You may already be a member.

Risks and challenges

Besides the absurd fact that we will not know how much water will be in the reservoir, this campaign has few actual risks. The acre of bullshit that is up at Lodoga is a $25,000 garbage liability. It's not going anywhere. The art boats are junk, no surprises there. Everything else is pretty easy. I'd say the risk is low, the challenges surmountable and we are all going to go to the lake this year and love every minute of it.
